THE REVENGE OF THE PUNITIVE CONSCIENCE

Ah, you ask.  Am I really so amoral [perhaps as a result of being atheistic] that I can just dump a non-functional dishwasher on the street and forget about it?  Sigh.  Would that I were.

So I asked Google for "5th arrondissement mairie" and up popped the website of the town hall of the 5th.  Right there was a list of services, the second of which was "enlevement d'objets encombrant," which, sure enough, means pick-up of bulky objects.  An array of pictures, and as you roll your cursor over each one a balloon pops up with a list of likely objects.  There in the balloon over what looks like a refrigerator was "lave-vaissel," which is to say dishwasher.  I clicked on that, entered my address, chose tomorrow morning between six and eight as the time when I would put it out [all right, all right, so it has been there for two days disgracing the street.  Nobody's perfect.]  My name, my telephone number, my email address, and I got an eleven digit confirmation number and the message that they will be by to pick it up.

Oh yes, I was instructed to write the number on a piece of paper and "scotchez" it [no kidding] to the dishwasher.

So there, I am not really a bad person.
