Recycling

Earlier this summer we rented a small house house in a state park. We spent two nights there. The first day we arrived I put some bottles into the recycling on the back porch. I met the park ranger while I was outside. I introduced myself and we chatted for a few minutes. Then she said that she asked when we arrived. I told her that it was our first day there. She opened the recycling container and said she would be back to empty it. Ok.
I went back inside. Then I looked through the window and I noticed that the park ranger was emptying the recycling the container like she said and it was full. Very full. Full with wine bottles! And didn't I just tell her that I was only here one day? I swear those weren't mine. Not even one of them. I had only put water bottles in the recycling. I was very jealous of the people who had stayed in the house before us!

That's too funny. She must have thought you were a heavy drinker.
