Around these parts if you have an old appliance that still works that you want to get rid of you have to physically handed off to someone else. If it’s left out in the open for any length of time one of the scrap metal guys will snag it. We put a metal cabinet out not too long ago and I saw the guy take it. At first I was confused because he carried it around to the front of his truck. Then amazingly he tossed it onto the hood of the truck, climbed up next to it heaved it up onto the roof and then with a horrible scraping sound pushed it into the back of the truck. It must be a bittersweet experience for him when his truck finally dies. He has to get a new truck but he also gets to hand the old one in to the scrap metal yard.

Today’s Maximumble is happy either way.
