The Trash Truck And You

Do you put a finger under your nose when you pass by the trash truck ? Do you make faces when you have to smell the trash and do you walk faster (or better still run) when you re nearing the trash truck ?

You may have a very sensitive nose which can pick any kind of smell from afar, BUT with due respect I think it is very inappropriate to put your finger under your nose, to cringe your face at the smell of the trash or to even pull up your car window especially when the trashmen are around. Its like as if youre looking down at their work, implying their work is dirty and smelly when all theyre doing is trying to make ends meet. I dont think its by choice, even if it is, dont we feel grateful that theyre around to clean up the trashes.
