The kindness of strangers

So I had to go back to my folks on Sunday to take the Iron Crate, that my lovely little Ego Scoota came in, to the local dump site. This bad boy was not going to get in my car, as it was slightly too large (not to mention that after a week in the natural elements it had gone rather orange with rust).

After realising that it definately was not going to get in the car, I elected to walk it down there (I live just over a mile away).

So my mum and I donned our finest gardening gloves and started our trek down there with vigour. After many a stop and swapping hands we had managed to get the cumbersome object to within 500 yards of the dump. We had put it down to rest and were having a chat when some guy in a big truck pulled up and asked us if we were trying to get it down there and would we like a lift with it. Obviously we jumped at the chance and before we knew it we were down there.

After putting this safely in the corner, (where the attendent had said to …. he was probably going to sell it for scrap so at least it will get further use), we were on our way back out when another car pulled up and asked what we had been doing walking with that thing as they had seen us. After explaining, they too offered us a lift.

it just goes to show that we can all do our little bit to help. Many Thanks to those kind dumpers 😀
