There's no telling where you'll find true love and the best example of that was found in a recent post on Reddit. Someone asked on Reddit, "Garbagemen of Reddit, what's the most memorable thing you've found in the trash?" And this man had the sweetest story to share. A man wrote, "Not a garbage man, but my dad was before I was born. He's found old fishing lures, a Bulova watch, but most importantly...My dad was the driver who had this one girl's garbage route, and every time the girl would hear the truck she'd get all the last-minute garbage from the house and take it out so she could get a good look at all the garbage men. And she was interested in my dad."

The girl also scheduled her radiography classes around trash collection day, just so she'd be home. His father began to notice the trend and started to switch roles with one of the men in the back so that he can collect her last-minute garbage. He wrote, "This went on for months. One day, the girl's father locked her out of the house and said he wouldn't let her back in until she gave her phone number to one of the garbage men."

And that day, fortunately, his father was driving the truck. He wrote, "She took the trash up to the guy on the back and she asked him, 'Hey, is your driver seeing anyone?' The guy yelled to my dad, 'Hey Keith, are you seeing anyone?!?!'"

"And this is how my dad found his most valuable treasure, my mom, in the garbage. They've been happily married for almost 26 years," he concluded.

People on the platform just loved the story. A user wrote, "This is pretty awesome how I met your mother story." Another wrote, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Another user said, "What a Story 🥰"

In another story surrounding trash, a man named Kevin Butler, from Windham, lost his wife's wedding rings after he threw out a napkin in which they were kept after they were cleared, according to PEOPLE. Butler did not know that his wife had placed the rings there. "She looked around for her rings. I said, "'I've got a good feeling they may be in the trash that I just took to the transfer station,'" Butler told WMUR9. They only realized it after he had dropped their trash at a local transfer station. 

Soon, he was back at the station asking for help. Transfer station supervisor Dennis Senibaldi and his coworkers got to work. They checked the CCTV camera to see Butler's trip to the station and where exactly they should start digging. Then the crew used an excavator to look through the garbage. After scooping it out a bit, Butler found a clue that helped them solve the problem. 



 

"One of the things he said was [inside] was celery stalks, and I could see a celery stalk sticking out the side of the bag," Senibaldi said. "As we were going through the bag that we knew was his, he actually said, 'It's not in here.' And I said, 'No, there's a couple of little pieces left,'" Senibaldi said. "I had my rubber gloves on, I moved a few items out of the way and saw literally the very last napkin and I opened it up." Finally, they found the rings.
