Two weeks ago I was dumping an old dishwasher in the alley when a new resident for the apartment next door marched up and told I couldn't do that. After a long day of installing a dishwasher, the last i wanted was to deal with some jackass butting in where his opinion is neither informed or wanted. I live in a poor 'hood, where the recyclers scour for anything sellable, be it for re-use or recycling. After an exchange of sharp words, he retreated into his apartment. The dishwasher was gone in the morning. To get back at me, he threw a crappy old Micargi cruiser in front of my dumpster.
Two new tires and tubes, set of handgrips and a quick spray can paint job I sold it for $80.00. Quick $55 dollar profit. Horrible toad of a bike, but the guy who bought it will ride it around the beach, get drunk & forget where he parked it. Maybe it'll last two years and have a rear wheel collapse. Or get left behind when he moves. Either way, everybody's now happy.
