Helping a Friend Move

Helping a friend move is a big step in any relationship. Not too many people are willing to sacrifice a Saturday to help you haul cardboard boxes around. But if you find a friend that’s willing to help you move, you know you’ve found a true friend. And you should reward him for his services. You don’t have to give him money, but you should give him beer or something as a way of saying thank you. That way it will be more like you’re hanging out and you won’t feel as guilty about taking advantage of the free labor. It’s also a bonding experience. Lugging a big screen TV down a flight of stairs is like living in a dorm together. You quickly discover each other’s flaws and true personalities, and there’s a sense of pride and accomplishment if you get through the ordeal without killing each other. You can’t call it a successful life if you’ve never helped a friend move. It’s not glamorous, but it’s fulfilling.

Breaking Down Cardboard Boxes

I believe in recycling because I like saving the planet and feeling superior to other people. Cardboard is one of the many things that I recycle. There are pizza boxes, TV dinner packages, soda cases, delivery packages, and all sorts of cardboard boxes that continually show up in my house. It seems like taking out the trash is a constant battle. The thing about cardboard boxes is that they take up space. So you have to break them down before you shove them in the recycling bin. Otherwise they take up too much room and you can fit anything else in. Breaking down cardboard boxes makes sense; it’s what you’re supposed to do. Not breaking them down is stupid and lazy. I’m lazy too, but I realized that if you break shit down then you don’t have to take out the garbage as much. I’d rather spend 2 seconds breaking down a box than spend 2 minutes taking the recycling out to the garage, throwing it in the collection bins, then getting a new trash bag and replacing the old one. Nope, I think I will just save space and time by breaking down this box now and avoiding the real chore. Now if only I could get my roommates to see the light.
