Dumpster Diving Diaries: Midweek Madness - BUSTED!

So, yesterday lunchtime I decided to hit up the bins behind my flat, just to see if the local green-grocers had thrown out any goodies.

Lo and behold, they had! And just as I was sorting out my mushrooms from me peppers, one of the shop's employees came round the back and was shocked to see me head first, arse last, out of one of their bins!

'What are yoo doing then?' she asked.
'Well, I'm getting some food' I replied, quite matter-of-factly.

'Have you asked the owner of the store if you're allowed to do that?' she said, (there's nothing lawfully/legally that says I have to but out of common sense and to humour her, I concurred.)

'Actually I haven't, would you like me to?'
'Yeah, you better, just in case' she said.

And no surprises, the store owner let me, simply because we already know each other on a first-name basis, and before asking for his permission to do it, I asked if he could 'do me a favour'. Crafty.

And here's what I got...Lunch! -

That's the first time in 2 years that I've been 'busted', but with some manners and common-sense, you'd be surprised what you can get away with.
