“If we were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for regrets.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

Spring is the time of the year when the more ambitious ( not necessarily in need) folks latch on to a shopping cart and make their bottle seeking tour of the industrial trash bins outside apartment complexes and condominium sites a full-time employment opportunity.
Many such folks spend a good part of their days guiding their metal carts up and down city side streets, alleys and other walkways in search of discarded bottles, household items and a potpourri of other things that many folks throw away.
The man in this photo was heading to a nearby bottle return depot when the large bag unfortunately became dislodged from the top of the buggy.
His situation was made worse by the fact that the depot itself had closed earlier than usual for the day.
He did not get angry by this fact but pulled out his cell phone, called a friend and about 30 minutes later a pickup truck arrived on the scene to help him unload his massive amount of bottles.
The man and his friend in the pickup truck returned to the depot early the next day.
Sometimes you have to admire folks who face adversity and merely carry on. — gc
