Today we went on a trip to the recycling centre. Thank you for doing the driving! And for taking the initiative to clear out some of the obsolete/broken electronics from the spare room, and for remembering to make the kitchen and living room accessible before S came, I'm glad I have you.
However, you were asking if there's anything you could do better, and I noticed something I wasn't sure about.
At the recycling centre, one basically just drives up and parks outside the bin one wants, haul stuff out of the car, and get out of the way. However, you're always paranoid that I'm jumping a notional queue, or someone else is carrying more stuff than me and needs to be closer to the bin than me. So you normally park a little bit back, and carry stuff across to the right bin.
However, this means I'm parking in front of a different bin. So I'm just as likely to be in someone's way there as in front of the bin I actually want. (That's not quite true, since the household waste and small electronics area is normally busiest, but close enough to true.)
The urge to not be in the way is laudable, but you can't just avoid taking things you want in the hope that it will help other people have them: it only helps if it's something other people actually want, and if you don't know, you might as well go ahead and take what you want.
All my love Jack
PS. I'm sorry if I sometimes call you "Brian", I don't mean to.
