    Didn't find the box but

    Today I needed a large 3-5 ply cardboard box to ship a IBM Selectric ( 40 lb) typewriter. The first dumpster I looked in there was two brand new 14" Husqvarna concrete cutting blades. The next one I looked in I found one and a half IBM POS systems. The next couple nothing. The last one I checked there was an AT&T cell phone recycling kiosk. You guessed it. It was full of smartphones. I gave up and headed home. I really hope to find that box tomorrow!

    it seems that if he strikes it rich in a big enough way, he will forget about the box.
