Odd Question about Apartment "Servicing"

Post by Ravensnest »

Some will find this an odd question, but there is a personal reason for my asking.

I've only ever had this one apartment here in PP. My apartment building, for $10 extra per month, will provide a cleaning once a week. I have always opted out of it as I'm OCD clean and I have always taken my trash out to the curb.

Is it commonplace for tenants to leave their trash bags outside of their front door for someone else to carry out to the curb?

I'd say it's more common for you to take the trash to the kerb yourself rather than leaving it by the door for someone else to take, but I guess it depends on the arrangements of the apartment building you live in. If that's what everyone else does, (and it still somehow gets collected and doesn't just pile up) then it's probably fine. But I've lived in several apartments here and it's always been commonplace that you take the trash to the kerb yourself (or wherever the designated place is that the garbage lorries pick it up from)

Just bothered to go back on CEO after a long break from the superior beings who frequent these pages of! As my friend says people who assume ( make an ass out of u and me) that they are intelligent "always are not"! Read a book called a question of intelligence written by the then editor and chief of the New York Times its a good read, dispatches (dispels) a few myths ie that sporting stars like like rugby players are all 1/2 witted thugs beating their chests like rock apes, after the writer of this book question/ interviewed a few nuclear physicist and biomechanical engineers who were at the forefront of their field he/they decided that the shear brain power to run a body at peak performance would put them in the top 1/3 of intelligence compared to the rest of us normal humans. And where do you rate street smarts like a person who never had an education higher than high school and yet has become a multi billionaire in the business world, some would say that they have reached the pinnacle of success. Or on the same plane that some people here would conceive how do these local persons who have no education at all some cant even read or write in their own language live from day to day? some live quite well, and how do they continually make fools of quite a few so called highly educated and intelligent expats that live in and or visit this beautiful country. enjoy your day be positive and happy and of course now more importantly stay healthy!

Hmm, so Austman, not sure what your point is, but the big question here is do you take your rubbish out yourself or not ?

in my experience, No, it's not common practice to leave it outside your door for someone else to carry to the curb. Also, even if they don't say anything your neighbours prefer it if you don't put it by the curb in the morning if the trash is collected in the afternoon/evening - attracts more critters. Put it by the curb later in the day if it is collected later in the day.

is it the one that goes:
hey look at that white dude, look at that nose!
how does he even walk without tripping over it?
forget the nose, what about his cock?
hur, hur-hur

i always feel thoroughly brow-beaten when that happens
