Throwing out the trash, ideas?

Postby tkuanhoo » Sat, 01 May 2010 8:31 pm

Hey guys, I have a few useless furnitures at home. They are too big for the lift. How do I throw these trash out? They obviously don't belong and can't fit in here.

Any ideas?

Thanks. Your help is much appreciated.

I don't know about furniture but I had some really huge boxes that i left outside my condo and a few hours later they disappeared I think the grounds person tossed it for us.

Suppose you get them out the same way they came in.

Trust you to be so very very wrong . . . they built the building around his furniture . . . obviously.

There . . . don't you feel just a little bit silly now?

As long as it landed on the OP it wouldn't be any loss to anybody and would actually be doing the world a favour.

Hi SMS,

Hope all is good. REvisiting this forum after a long off ..... due to work.

To OP,

Very easy to get rid of the stuff. Just get those cleaners (I believed workers from Bangladesh), and ask them clear them. They will definitely help themselves to the good items. This is good way of recycling.
I work to live and not live to work.

Have a similar situation every morning when I get to work.

I stay in the last building on the right side, off a road. Every morning, the cab driver will drive towards the end of the road (I think he reckon he can break through the wall or something!), instead of turning right, into the building, pick me up, and U-turn on his way out.

I will just wait in my building till the cab driver realised (in shock!) that he is at a deadend, make a U-turn, turn into my building and pick me up.

You are so demanding... it will be even worse if you let them handle your furniture, trashy or not.
Tsss, it is a different thread :P

My bad. The truth be told. Not all women are capable of multi-tasking! I was planning of posting that comment in "Taxi Drivers with no place to go" but I must have zonked out and posted it here instead!

It happens... :oops:

Shy? Not at all.

Truth is that I am a Mechanical Engineer by training so we go through each problem step by step, analytically. We spend time looking for and assessing each problem before they occur so we know what to expect and already have the answer available. After spending a day doing this and writing up each step logically we get out the hammer. In the end, it is the ONLY answer one requires ;)

OP..... would you prefer to be sitting down for this? It's not so far to fall.
