To expect my neighbours to bring my bin in?

Just arrived home from work, 6pm. It's bin day and like every week none of my neighbours (all retired but fit and well) bring my bin in. It's always left on the street causing obstruction.
I just know that if I was at home all day everyday id ring someone else's bin in if they were at work all day.

Your bin, your job

Oh and biscuit

Your bin, you move it.
My neighbours do bring my bin in, mainly because they have to shift mine to get to theirs. I'm grateful, and I return the favour if I'm at home on bin day, but I'd never expect it.

Have you ever asked them?

I don't like bringing my own bin in let alone my neighbours but I would do it for special occasions like if they were away and they asked me to, I wouldn't do it every week though and I certainly wouldn't expect it

Jeepers confused

Do you help them out with things? Surely it takes 5 seconds?

grin This should be good.
FWIW my neighbours being mine in but I'd never expect them to.

You win the entitled arse of the day award.

I always bring the neighbour's bin in because it's causing an obstruction otherwise, and makes it look obvious they're out if it's on the pavement.

It's hardly a hardship to do it.

I wouldn't ever expect to bring another person's bin in - why would you? I wouldn't expect them to bring mine in either and would be quite put out if they did. How odd!

Maybe they would if they liked you. Judging by your OP (guessing its a first post) I doubt they do.

YABU. Holiday requests excepted, don't expect your neighbors to do your chores for you.

(Where will it end: He was mowing his lawn anyway and is retired and has bugger all else to do, I can't believe he didn't mow mine too!)

LyndaNotLinda Fri 29-Jul-16 18:00:23

Just because they're retired, you expect them to be on bin duty? shock

Haroldplaystheharmonica Fri 29-Jul-16 18:00:30

We bring each others bins in and although I don't expect it, I'd be surprised if it was left out on the path all day.

We do have good neighbours though - help each other with jobs, borrow bits and pieces, give food away before we go on holiday, etc.

Are you incapable of wheeling a wheeling bin or does it do wheelies?

tibbawyrots Fri 29-Jul-16 18:01:23

I'll bet they didn't do your vacuuming either, did they? Bastards. hmm

m0therofdragons Fri 29-Jul-16 18:01:24

Totally agree op. I'm outraged my pensioner neighbour doesn't do my garden and clean my house while I work. Not very neighbourly wink

Heratnumber7 Fri 29-Jul-16 18:01:52

May be they would if you asked them nicely and just assume.

yougottheshining Fri 29-Jul-16 18:02:44

Yabu. However ywouldnbu to want the bin men to take your bin in because well ffs they are bloody bin men and they should. I know they don't any more and we all seem to have got used to it but really it's a bit fucking shit to have bins all over the path blocking the way for people with mobility problems or even just people with kids in buggies.

I always push empty bins back for people as I walk along, it makes it easier for prams to pass. Why wouldn't anyone do that? It takes seconds.

Missgraeme Fri 29-Jul-16 18:02:59

Simply because nobody does owt for nowt these days. If someone had taken your bin in they would have billed u a fiver for doing it likely!!

Ihatechoosingnames Fri 29-Jul-16 18:03:01

Is this a reverse?

It's not their responsibility. Yes it would be kind of them if they did it but it's really not their job...YABU
