A Simple Thank You Says A Whole Lot

A Simple Thank You Says A Whole Lot

I know It may be a cliche to hear about “the unsung heroes” that work in the back grounds of our daily lives, but there are some out there that I never gave a fleeting thought to until I joined the ranks of them. We are up and out of the house before the sun is up and often we don’t get home until the sun goes down. Rain, sleet, hail, or snow we’d be there. No, this time I am not speaking about the dependable mail delivery service. I’m talking about your trash man. We drive the 30,000 pound vehicles down your street with flashing lights, reflective stripes, and loud noises; that usually you plug your ears to as we pass or your child plug their nose and makes faces at. We are the trash men that haul off the waste that is created by the public. And, you may not realize it, we do our best to keep you happy. We take things that, if we followed the letter of our company’s policy, we wouldn’t really have to take; be it an extra bag or ten, or the kitchen sink that you just ripped out, or the closet door that has been in the backyard for the last year. I’m sure every one of us has though, “Ugh!!! Why couldn’t he take this, it was just one extra ______?!?!?” To put a little prospective on this thought, the average trash rout can be anywhere from 150-700 homes A DAY or more… essential point is if you want just a little extra you must give a little extra whether it’s monetary around the holidays, or a gift card to say thanks, or a cold bottle of water and a hand shake on a hot summer day. We appreciate the recognition in a thankless job.

 P.S. Please keep in mind this is just from a personal experience of mine. I am in no way trying to detract from other forms of civil service such as police, fire, emergency services, or our military. All of which give thoughtlessly to their communities and country men and women.
