Sunday Night Conversation

Husband Of Betty (HOB): You know we didn't have much trash this week. I don't think I'm going to put the garbage can out on the curb.

Betty: Oh yes. You have to.

HOB: Why?

Betty: Because it's the international symbol that you are not dead inside your house.

HOB: Is that true?

Betty: Everybody knows that. You don't put out your garbage can on the appointed day and the next day the neighbors are walking by your house wondering if your pets are circling your rotting corpse.

HOB: Well, I guess I'd better put it out then.

Betty: Oh I think so.

it is the international symbol; as your international representative, i can confirm this.

Thank you very much for that confirmation. It has been received and duly noted.

This is so true!! I always have the neighbors do it for me when I am outta town. I don't want people driving by to know I'm not home!!
