Garbage Day

The city recently changed the day that my neighbourhood gets its trash picked up. It used to be Tuesday, and now it is Wednesday. A full month before the change took effect the city sent a letter to every resident on the street telling them of the change. This letter was sent in 7 different languages. It has been two months now, and the idiot next door still puts his garbage out on Monday nights. The stinking pile of trash sits in the sun all day Tuesday as neighbourhood cats rip into the bags and spread garbage all over my yard and the sidewalk. You would think he might realize at some point that he is the only person on the street who still puts his garbage out on Monday nights but he seems oblivious to the entire thing.
