Don't Forget the Trash!

Take it from me, should you ever place a bag of trash in the trunk of your car (with the intent of disposing of it in the dumpster located 1,000 miles from your apartment) before heading to work, don't forget to actually stop and throw it in the dumpster.  This is especially important if the crazy Midwestern weather throws in a random 80 degree autumn day.

If you do forget, and the bag of trash remains in the trunk for the duration of your work day, your car will smell like something curled up and died in your front seat.  Yes, I did this just this week.  I would love to say that this is the first time I have let this happen, but it's not, and it most likely won't be the last time.  

Luckily, the smell is now out of my car.  If this saves even one car from smelling like roadkill, then I guess it was all worth it.

Happy Thursday!


  1. Let's consider the positive side though. Who is going to steal a car that smells like it's holding a dead body? Seriously, that's the best anti-theft system anyone has ever come up with.

  2. It's true. I actually did it on purpose. :)
