So anyway, in Gloucester, Massachusetts, residents must purchase garbage bags from the city. The bags are $2 each and are purple and have the word "Official" marked on them. The city will not pick up your trash if it's not in these "Official" bags.
Naturally, a black market of sorts has sprung up because, you know, Holy smokes! $2 a bag!?!?!?
So the city government trash bag procurement peopleguys ordered a batch of bags with the word "Official" deliberately misspelled.
Now the garbageman peopleguys must read each bag and only remove the "Offcial" bags.
No, really. There is so much that is wrong with this I don't even know where to start. Although I'm tempted to get in on the "counterfeit" bag action.
