I like these a lot – Made in Denmark, not bad!

I used to know a fellow who owned a van that was very old, beat up and ugly.
He had a route throughout the city he took every night after work. Took him about 90 minutes a night, and sometimes he would take his kids along. The routes ran along the homes where the garbage would be picked up the next day.

Over the weekend, with the van filled from things people threw out, he went to a local flea market and sold the stuff. He was making about $300 a weekend, tax free. This was in the 80’s. Anything that he thought would not sell at the end of the flea market day, (which was a drive-in), he simply put in the 55 gallon barrels for trash located around the drive-in. Some stuff he left in the van for the next week.
Quite a racket, and he did it for quite a few years.
