Someone Assemble!

Dear Mr. Garbage Man,

I wish you didn't have to work when it's as cold as it is tonight. Really, I do.

That being said, can you do me a small favor and NOT wear a full-on ski mask to keep warm???

While I don't scare easy, seeing a large figure dart from behind a garbage truck is bothersome. I'm sure it would be for anyone, tripod or non-tripod.

But when that same large figure runs toward me dressed as the stereotypical bank robber and/or rapist, I become not only frightened, but slightly autistic as well. My synapses are so slow to react that I can actually hear the message they are sending to my brain: "Man...in...mask...running...towards...me. This...is...bad."

When I was finally able to comprehend the situation, I found I also do not try to run or cry for help. Instead I create a mental flipbook of the superheroes who should be coming to rescue me.

The joke is that it's not even a flipbook-phonebook of how to reach any of them in an emergency situation (ie The Bat Signal). It's more of a costume fashion mag with pages upon pages of superhero outfits from the neck down. Worthless.

So there you have it. Please don't ever wear the ski mask again. Thanks.
