Down in the Dumps

Darrel Baker, 44, of St. Augustine, Fla., drives a garbage truck. Normally, it’s a pretty boring job, but recently after a stop, he was driving to the next stop when a man climbed out of the pit, climbed down from the roof, and knocked on the windshield. Startled, Baker hit the brakes, which sent the man tumbling to the ground. Baker got out to check on the man, who “shook it off,” got up, and said, “I guess I won’t do that again.” He then wandered off while Baker was calling his supervisor to report the incident. (MS/St. Augustine Record) ...He won’t knock on the windshield, or he won’t sleep in a dumpster?
