TACOMA: Garbage stinks, but that’s not the worst

It is unbelievable that the City of Tacoma decided that it would be appropriate to reduce garbage pickup to every other week.

We knew that when we placed spoiled chicken in the garbage that it would stink to high heaven in the heat of the past two weeks. Unfortunately, moving it around the property did nothing to reduce the stench surrounding us.

The worst thing, however, happened this afternoon when I rolled the can out to the curb. I opened it and found maggots crawling everywhere! I thought I might get through life without having to see maggots in person. Boy was I wrong.

Thanks, Tacoma, for traumatizing me in more ways than one.
