You might be a redneck......

if you go spear fishing in the dumpster. 

Saturday I realized that I had Cal throw a box in the dumpster that I forgot to cut the UPC off in order to get a $10 rebate.   We live in a townhouse complex that has about 70 units in it and it was a full day before I realized my mistake.  I was pretty upset because the rebate was the reason I made the purchase, without that it was overpriced. 

I stomped around the house for several minutes before I decided to take a walk and see if I might be able to locate the box.  I woke up Cal to see which dumpster he threw it in and then headed out. 

Upon opening the dumpster door I saw the box, it was all the way to the back of the dumpster, and  only had one bag of garbage in front of it.  I took a look around the dumpster and found a long stick, I speared the bag of garbage and pulled it away from the box and then speared the box.  Success. 

Now I have to remember to fill out the silly form and send the rebate in.
