Poor Man Looks for Cans in Trash Can Finds Some Luck

June 13, 2006 at 8:53 pm 1 comment

There was a person who lived in a house where quite a few homeless people rummage through the trash looking for aluminum cans to make money off of recycling them.  It is good that the cans are being recycled, but sucks because of the means to which they get to the recycling center. 

One day the resident of the house was walking outside and meet a man digging for can in his trash.  The resident was used to this and thought nothing of it because it became a norm.  The people of the neighborhood never got mad because the can hunters always cleaned up the mess they made during their search.  What caught the resident's attention was the wheel chair the elderly man was in as he was can hunting.  

The resident was rather young and had a bunch of aluminum cans inside his house from a party the night before.  He hurried back inside collected all the cans into one garbage bag (filling it) and rushed outside before the man moved on to the next-door neighbor's.  

The resident felt bad that he couldn't do more, but the man in the wheel chair was thankful for having a full bag of aluminum cans without having to look for them.
