Cranks My Tractor

I bet you would have never guessed that would you?

They go on to tell me that it is neat, clean and easy.  I’m sure that it is. 

Somewhere in the paperwork, it describes the wheeled cart as a “toter.”  Again, a new word for garbage can. 

This 96 gallon toter looks like you could get anywhere from 6 to 8 small children into it.  Not that you would do that, it is just very large.  Per the paperwork, please note, “These toters are easy to maneuver.”

One thing that is very important is that due to the automation, you must make sure that nothing is within five feet of your wheeled cart/toter.  The company notes the following in bold print with a line under it – “Please do not put anything you do not wish to be picked up near your carts.”

They give examples of lawn chairs, basketball hoops, mail boxes and bicycles.  This begs the question of “What if I do want it picked up?”  You know – a nagging spouse, the neighbor’s dog that insists on barking at 3 a.m. or even my old garbage cans that have served me so well for many years.

Could I put them within five feet?
