I was taking my trash bin out for pickup. A neighbor was doing the same thing. He took a few steps toward me and started talking (we kept ourselves 2 + meters apart). He tossed one complaint out after another. He complained about the election. He complained about the slow roll out of the COVID vaccines. He complained about deer nibbling on his bushes. And, he complained about his son not calling him every evening. I couldn’t wait to escape! LOL. You’ve all been there. You know what I mean. When he left, I looked at his large green trash bin and thought how much better my neighbor would feel if he tossed his complaints in the trash bin along with his garbage.
