  • And an identity theif won't usually stand their and dig through stuff to find what they want. They will either take the whole bag, or get the info from somewhere else (your mailbox, computor hacking).Besides, if you shred your stuff before hand, you have no worries.

  • No if he was really looking for cans. I would prob give him some more cans if I had them and offer him a few dollars. Poor guy.

  • Nope. I would keep it in mind and start to put the cans in a different bag to sit out for him. ;-)

  • I don't think so, as long as he was not harming anything or anyone. I'd probably give him the cans I already had bagged up and ready to go lol (I hate taking bottles in)

  •'s my GARBAGE. I don't throw away important stuff to be left out on the street and if someone is desperate enough to dig through all the dirty diapers to find some cans then by all means. But he'd probably have more luck digging through the recycling bins since all our cans and bottles go in that one. I wouldnt have a problem with someone taking my cans...unless he was consistently making a mess in my yard or driveway or something.

  • No...It's just cans. I shred all my personal and private documents.
