Taking out the trash

3 0 0

It’s funny what gets people’s blood boiling, and fraud is right up there with the most heinous crimes of all.

Even thinking about the various forms of fraud makes my face flush with righteous rage.

In fact just this week Mrs Hutch and I were victims of one of the lesser known, but no less despicable frauds - wheelie bin fraud.

You see we have a bin provided by a private contractor and once a week, first thing in the morning, we wheel it out and place it by the side of the road.

Shortly afterwards our worldly waste disappears to become one with the Earth again. We wash our hands and try to be better next week.

To be fair, we seldom fill even half a bin but that depends on what activities we have been engaged with.

Blind fury

Nevertheless, neighbouring villains have been taking advantage of our bin in the mornings. No sooner is the back turned and someone is stuffing their filthy detritus in our private receptacle.

Usually this goes unnoticed, but when someone simply flings a pot of butter chicken in there or over stuffs the bin so it won’t close, it offends our senses........
