A.: One year when I left for vacation my co-worker Chris watched the Bulk Yard for me. When I came back from my time off I decided to check what was dumped in the yard. The first scoop with the loader and I discovered literally a kitchen sink attached to the counter top. I thought it was amusing to watch Chris explain how he missed seeing such a big piece of trash. Needless to say Chris never watched the Bulk yard while I was on vacation again.
