Things In His House That Make Me Sad: His Tiny, Overflowing Wastebasket

With just two Q-tips, four cotton balls, a used Kleenex, and a used disposable razor, this thing is at maximum capacity. I hate it! Even Oscar the Grouch would scoff at this thing. And, he LOVES trash! In fact, it looks like Oscar the Grouch puked up all over this bathroom after having three Sparks and dancing his ass off at Making Time

Since it's so small, it fills up with flotsam almost immediately. The grocery store bag he uses for the lining is too big and it slumps over the sides like it hates its life. Honestly, we don't blame it. That trash bag probably envisioned itself growing up to cart some lady's fresh groceries home from the Acme, not playing makeshift garbage bag in a guy's rank bathroom.

He never empties it, instead choosing to let it spill over onto the floor like TP droppings from the TP tree. But, the WORST is when you have your period and you have to stash your pad in this overgrown mess. You gotta try and jam it in an empty toilet paper roll like a terrible afikomen. And that just makes me sad.

Oh man, I am guilty of this. I've gotten better with age, but something about emptying that bathroom trashcan is just tedious and awful.

Guilty as charged but I'm learning the error of my ways thanks to this site.

better to bury it than to drop it into the freshly emptied trash receptacle, so that it's the only thing in there.

Afikomen reference is priceless.
