Garbage, don't forget

When I was a kid growing up just outside of Fairbanks, we did not have garbage service out that far. So we would have to load the garbage up into the trunk of the car, or the truck, and deliver it to the array of dumpsters set up for that purpose.

We'd do this on our weekly Saturday morning trips to town. Sometimes FatherSir would forget to turn off so we could throw out the garbage. So we formed a habit of having someone sing out, "We have garbage, don't forget!"

Occasionally, no one would remind anyone, and then FatherSir would realize that we'd gone past the dumpsters without leaving the trash, and he'd grumble, "We have garbage, I forgot!"
