Trash Can

Yesterday was a day of amazement's. First, we finally got our Internet hooked up, and we got our trash can!!!!! Many of you (the peeps I know in "real" life) know our story with our trash can. But for those that have not heard the it goes.

When we moved into our house, we had no garbage can. This is a problem because in Detroit everyone has to have the same can from the city. However, I did not think it was going to be hard to get one. So I called the city to try and buy a trash can. They told me I had to file a police report because it was missing when we moved it.
So I called the police department (I guess they have a whole department devoted to trash can issues) and they asked me many many question. Like, When did you first notice the trash can missing? What time of day was it?...blah...blah...blah. The whole time I was have got to be kidding me...all this for a trash can? Then the ultimate question (I swear this is 100% the truth) she asked me "Are you white or black?" I literally said to her "WHAT?" In telling Donnie this story he said I should have asked her what color gets the can the fastest.
After I filed the police report, I had to call the city back. They informed me that they would mail me more information about getting my can. Keep in mind, we have just moved it, have lots of trash and no where to put it. Luckily my mom and dad came one weekend, and took some of the trash for us.
A week later, I did get a letter in the mail, stating that I need to send a money order to the city. So I went to the bank got the money order, and mailed it in. And yesterday our trash can showed up!!!!! It a miracle!!!!!
