The PF Monster: Round 2.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll remember this post here. The bf is slowly becoming a PF monster of my own creation.

This isn't a bad thing per se, but last night's convo really left me wondering:

Bf: "I went down finally to take all the recycling from the move down to the P1 parking lot.  Do you know just how many people don't take their empties back to the store?"

Me: "Yeah I know.  I guess I'm cheap.  A lot of people don't, but that's transit fare or a contribution to your beer if you take some back."

{disclaimer:  this is NOT may have been tho in university!  I seem to remember our yard looking like this once or twice......   -----------> }
Bf: "Next time I want to go buy beer, I'm going down to the recycling first to see who's left empties.  I'm going to take them back and get money for them!"

Me: "I understand your reasoning, honey.  But the HOMELESS pick the garbage for empties.  Do you really want to be on the same level as the HOMELESS?"

Bf:  "Well if I save $4....yeah...."

Look what I've done.  So, do you take your empties back for money?  I think it's a great way to earn a few bucks for the change jar, or even to fund your next binge party.  Speaking of that, I have a closet full to go return right now :)
