    Why would anyone think it’s strange for anyone to feel fascinated by a garbage truck, or any number of mundane things we take for granted? Do you all know the centuries of progress it took to get us to the point where we can even have garbage men? Do any of you have any sense of gratitude at all?

      Also, to show how much we rely on them, look at those garbage collector strikes in France.

      Yeah, it would be like that without them, but much worse long term.

        🤔 I wonder how it’ll work in the future. Automated garbage chute system, perhaps?

        Until then, garbage people definitely do deserve respect.

          Like this! (at least in urban areas).

          Honestly the way we do things now pisses me off ever since I watched that video. I’ve got 4 different trash containers to take care of (cardboard, organic, small plastics/metal, “other”), so when they’re full the least I should expect is that I could get rid of them down the street instead of waiting a week or two for a truck to come around!

          That would require a ridiculous amount of infrastructure pretty much everywhere except New York city maybe

              Yeah, probably. But technological advancements that replace a shit load of jobs, really should be taxed and that money should go directly to unemployment or even better; UBI
