It's Saturday morning. Your mission is to haul that stupid weight bench, which has been sitting outside unused for two years, to the dump. So you pay a coupla bucks to get into TDS and you heave it into one of their monster dumpsters. You're about to drive away when you notice, a little ways beyond the dumpsters, a sort of mini flea market with all kinds of cool stuff: bicycles, tricycles, lawnmowers, blue jeans, fertilizer, floor lamps, and lumber. Marty, the guy who oversees this part of the operation, sells you some things you can't live without and you drive away, stopping to try some barbecue at Wilhites (open Saturdays only). While you're eating a sausage wrap and musing on your fine purchases, Marty's hauling that weight bench, which only needs a new cover, out of the dumpster.
