The Trash Fairy

It is 1:05 a.m. and as I sit here, mindlessly surfing the net out of boredom and insomnia, what should catch my eye? The trash can in the kitchen.... its gleaming stainless steel exterior mocking me with its sticky fingerprints and overflowing refuse.

Yeah, I see you. Now shut up.

Am I the only person in this house who knows the mechanics involved in changing out the trash bag?
It seems like a simple enough process.
Pick the full one up and out, give 'er a spin and tie it up. Insert new bag. Boom. Done.

But no.
That is apparently just too complicated and time-consuming for this household.
Better to keep packing it in, until it flows over the top and tumbles to the floor.
That's ok, dear. Momma will pick it up. I have nothing better to do. I need the excercise anyway, right? *sigh*

Maybe, if I ignore it, and wish hard enough, the housecleaning fairy will come tonight.
Please, oh please, come visit me!
Oh, and if you could hit the bathroom with your magic wand on the way out, I'll be much obliged.

when you figure out how to get that bitch to stop by let me know. She always skips my house!

If I ever SEE her, I'm gonna hogtie her and hold her as my slave. She probably knows this, which is why she never finds her way to my house!

My fiance has a way of not throwing stuff away. our "trash" according to him...is apparently the kitchen sink. I don't get it, MEN. haha!

If it ever makes it to the kitchen, I don't complain TOO much. That is infinitely better than on the table beside the couch, where it USED to pile up, along with all the glasses. Ugh!

I need a trash fairy, also. The MIL will take it out IF it is trash day. MAYBE! But usually she just piles things and piles things. AND THEN....gets a new bag and puts it NEXT TO THE MOTHER FUCKING TRASH CAN!!!

Pardon my cursing...I have not gotten enough sleep lately!!!

I'd find that slightly more than unacceptable from an adult ! WOW !
