Gee, thanks guys

A little while ago, someone stole my rubbish bin. I didn't bother writing about it here at the time because things get stolen all the time in this part of the world. In a rather surprising turn of events, however, I returned home from work last night to find that whoever was responsible has now decided to return it -- after filling it with their crap of course. This morning just happened to be council rubbish collection day. Fortunately, the collection was early enough to be before work, so I have brought the now emptied bin back to where it belongs.

What's notable about this is that whoever decided they needed a bin in which to dispose of whatever crap they wanted to get rid of didn't bother asking. They just took it while I was away, filled it with their crap, and put it back. Contrary to popular belief, I am a reasonable person. If whoever did it had bothered to ask to use it, I wouldn't have had a problem (I rarely go through enough garbage to fill one of those things anyway).

It's highly unlikely I'll bother doing anything about it this time, as I generally try to rise above stupid petty suburban arguments. However, there is always a nagging thought there, a feeling that the human race would be a smarter species if someone were to eliminate people like this from the gene pool.

Depends on what was being thrown away. If I were dumping contraband, I wouldn't use my own bin.
