    Neighbor's dumpster

    I had to laugh when I found out why the 75 yo lady across the street had a huge dumpster delivered to her driveway the other day. After a lifetime of her husband's refusal to go through his clutter and clean it up, she intends to throw everything he has collected into the dumpster. I can only imagine the conversations inside her house - but she has reached her tolerance level apparently. I get it

    Wow. I don't think I will have the physical strength at 75 to fill a dumpster full of anybody's stuff.

    She is my hero. We need to name something important after her.

    Maybe a municipal landfill?

    Destroying or disposing of your spouses' personal possessions without their consent is a form of Domestic Abuse. She needs to be charged, jailed, and have an ex parte filed on her. Then, she can rent an apartment and keep it so tidy that it looks as though no one lives there. Yup. Hope that helps you some.2022-07-22 (8).jpg2022-07-22 (8).jpg

    If he’s a true hoarder I don’t see this going well. Should be interesting.

    I have never disposed of anything belonging to my husband without his approval. I agree that's it's inappropriate and disrespectful, although I might feel differently if I was living with an actual hoarding situation.

    Dave Barry always made fun of Grand Forks, North Dakota, so at one point they named a sewage treatment station after him: https://www.michigansthumb.com/news/...ry-7326148.php

    A hoarder in my neighborhood died and the whole house has to gutted. He couldn't get into the jampacked basement so didn't know until the neighbors saw water ponding that a water pipe burst so he had mold. Rodents got on the house and made nests in all his stuff. His relatives are trying to save the house.
