Letter to the Editor;
Bushy van Eck writes
The most precious gift is not only that of life itself, but the time which is given to us to fulfil that life.
We should respect the time that is given to us.
But even more so, we should respect the precious time of others as well and not just take it for granted.
Therefore, I would like to extend my thanks to the rubbish collectors who quite often work late into the nights.
They also have families and most often work late hours while I enjoy my meal with my family.
They might not always be on time, but at least my rubbish gets collected most of the time.
Late hours or even a day or two late, I can live with that as long as my rubbish gets removed.
The only right I would have to complain about how they perform their work is if I have actually done that job myself.
And believe me, very few would last for even a day if they had to do that arduous work.
