Picking up tin can

Yesterday, as early as 7.30am, what I saw was very surprising. Stopping at the traffic light, across a car beside the car I was in, a motorcyclist get off from his bike and ran to the turning road. It turned out that he was aiming for a tin can beside the road. Picking up the tin can in style, rushing back to his bike, crushing it with his feet, throwing the crushed tin can up and catch it with style, and he saw me smiling and laughing at his action. He gave me a smile and salute. He looks like just come back from exercise, with a torn helmet. Not handsome but interesting. Green light! Time to go.

Who would notice a small tin can beside a busy road? When the mind is set on looking out for something, only then we can detect it. Without knowing what we are looking for, it is easy to be out of focus. A tin can is a rubbish, it can also be the source of income. Different mind, different perspective.

Now, who left the tin can on a bush?

yeah, maybe to him the tin cans are something very valuable that he's looking for..

at home, we actually keep the tin cans we consumed, crushed them flat and then sell them away for some money - they are not garbage, don't just throw them away~~ :p

Tin can nowadays are very valuable... Some say that the cap of the tin can be use as making an artificial organ such as the kidney...

Ghosty Nana said...

AmirFX, yes it is valuable. Bad economy, everything can turn into money. Recycle is the trend anyway.

Danny, you can if you may. Thanks to him our city is free from cans lying around.

Ghosty Nana said...

Reptoz, risking your life for a can... For us, not worth it. For him, his life is about can.

Caroline, special case, maybe make it easier for the guy to pick up can.

Kelvin, because I don't know him. Btw, it is not his looks that took away my breath, it is his cool action.

manglish, so many $$ lying around nowadays. hahahaha.
