    Did those tree-shaped air fresheners exist in the 1980s? If so, a whole lot of them is going to be necessary to get the garbage’s stink out of the car. After that, another freshener to get rid of THAT stick.

    But nothing will get rid of the stink on their clothes in time to go to the wedding. It’s hard to imagine that anyone could be so foolish…

    Oh, never underestimate the ability of someone to do something stupid.
    I am convinced that somewhere in the DNA double helix, lurks the moron gene.

    Why aren’t any of the car windows rolled down?

    At this point the characters’ braindead lack of judgement torpedos the suspension of disbelief.

    They had the pine tree thingy as we called them back then and they do kill any smell, literally they do. A friend of mine, her eyes would swell up and tear, her nose would run and if she did not get away in time, i swear she would go into convulsions.

    I don’t get it. Don’t they have garbage pick up once or twice a week? And even if not, why go to the dump NOW, on the way to a wedding? I’m finding this story line a bit reaching.

    The story line is beyond belief! The only thing right about it is that not all communities had trash pickup. Ours in CT did not.

    I remember going with baby to visit grandma. Baby’s diaper had to be changed on the way back. We pulled off the highway, changed diaper and husband would not let me take the diaper back home, had to leave it by the side of the road. I was afraid the police would charge us for littering with hazardous waste, it was that bad-by then she was on formula, not breastfeeding and the smell….the one time in my life I’ve littered.

    By the way, in the United States, if you put your trash in out with someone else’s, you can be charged with “theft of service.”

    In all too many people, it doesn’t “lurk.” It’s extremely “in your face.”

    So she would rather hav a car permeated with stency from
    trash after church then go dump it and let the car have
    time to air out ? Not sure where here mental process is
    or if there is one in play.
