Al makes a mistake

I am not perfect. Nobody is. The following is a short tale of a mistake that I made. You will be given the opportunity to think about what you would’ve done in this situation.

Sunday morning, 10:00am – I take out the trash and replace the trash bag.

Sunday evening, 7pm – Upon making dinner, I realize that my meat has gone bad.

What do I do?

Obviously, I should throw it away. But if I throw it away, it’ll likely make my apartment smell bad.

But if I throw it away and then take the trash out again, this will be a waste of a trash bag. My current trash bag is completely empty!

What would you do?

Looking back, I would’ve just eaten the cost of the wasted trash bag and just taken the trash out. What I did instead was:

  1. Take out a new trash bag
  2. Throw the bad meat into the new trash bag
  3. Roll up the new trash bag to make it harder for odor to escape.
  4. Toss the rolled up trash bag with the rotten meat into my trash can.
  5. Called it a day.

So I managed to find the solution that both stunk up my apartment and wasted the trash bag.
