New Fridge & 52" Television
Well today my neighbour had a new fridge and a monsterous 52" projection television delivered. I noticed the Leon's truck pull up this morning. For those of you who don't know, Leon's is a Canadian chain of furniture and electronics stores famous for their "No Money Miracle". If you buy now you don't have to start making payments until 2004. If I am still around in 2004 perhaps I can look forward to the stuff getting repossessed. Anyway, they dropped off the new stuff, and sure enough now the two huge cardboard boxes the fridge and television came in are sitting on the front yard. It would take probably 5 minutes of work to break the boxes down flat and bundle them up with string. My stupid neighbour is probably too busy enjoying his new television to do that. I can now look forward to them sitting on the front lawn until next Wednesday when the recycling truck comes by to pick up cardboard. Even then they might not pick it up since boxes are supposed to be flat. I should stress that these are damn big boxes. The television box itself is probably 4 feet wide and 5 feet high. The fridge box is easily 4' x 4' x 4' as well. They take up his entire yard. If they blow into the street they will block traffic. I'm going to ask him on Saturday if I can come over to watch the Super Bowl.
