In praise of working man

This is to support all who work out in the elements everyday. No offense to those who work everyday inside a warm dry climate-controlled environment and put their heart into everyday grind. This is to broaden the horizon of the ignorance.

Stop giving the people who service your life everyday problems. When your garbage man doesn’t put your garbage can back all way behind your house in a foot of snow or snap your lid back tight, just think about this, on average they start about 2 a.m. and will pick up about 5 tons of garbage each day, all by hand.

Your plow man who is out there risking his life for a 20-hour day while it’s snowing and raining all day and night also don’t wish to be called a day before a storm and asked when he’s gonna show up to service you. Don’t call them to ask what weather’s coming, either. They are not God. Do what they do and sit in from the television and watch the news. Educate yourself like they do and you’ll get the same info they have. Stop thinking your the only person the working man has to service each day and just let us do our job.
