My closest girlfriend lost her managerial position three years ago when her company was sold, and is still unemployed. It's not for lack of trying. She has several recruiters looking for her, and has gone on many interviews, yet it's a highly competitive market as jobs that used to be there are no longer. She's been getting along by doing administrative temp work...when she can find it. At times, she's even taken part-time, minimum wage jobs. Even though she has a good work ethic, her self-worth has taken a major hit.
But, enough of that, as I am on the edge of breaking forum rules.
Back to Rick's point on other people messing with others' bins, we have a similar issue in our neighborhood. There are strict rules as to when one can put out food trash. Often, it means that people would have to put out their trash after their workday had begun. So... some simply discard it in a neighbor's trash can several hours before the earliest stated time, putting the lucky selected neighbor in a tough situation. Is s/he supposed to then move it somewhere else? Stay glued to the window all morning and catch the person in action? Or just pay the fine? (We live just outside the boundary, but if it were me, I'd be installing a camera...)
