 The Garbage Truck 

I'm looking out my office window into our cul-de-sac, and I see that our Waste Management garbage truck has stalled there. This is the second time in the past year that a garbage truck has broken down in our circle drive.

What does this mean??


If you're pondering the significance of garbage trucks on your street, it means you have too much time on your hands or you are desperate for signs about your future.
Well, yes, that I ponder such things does evince a fair amount of free time and perhaps an interest in my own future (although the latter is a bit of a reach), but that doesn't tell me what the garbage truck breakdowns mean. Note that I am opting not to interpret the events out my window in such solipsistic terms, as you would have me do.

Actually, both times it's happened have been at the same neighbor's driveway. He often is chucking out unusually large objects like desks and monitors. Although, the breakdowns seem more like an engine problem than a garbage-disposing problem.

The mystery continues....
