This was not our faux pas, thank the Creator, this incident was perpetrated by our neighbor's visitor. Most people would probably think twice before committing such an act, but there are those who, for one reason or another, simply don't consider the possible consequences. Thus, this tip is included mainly to amuse you, our perceptive, discerning, and highly intelligent visitors.
Tip of the Day #8 -
Do not use a recycling bucket as a handy platform upon which to place your small grill, no matter how well it fits. Grills do, by their very nature, emit a goodly amount of heat, and even the sturdy plastic from which the buckets are molded is not proof against said heat. Inevitably, the plastic will soften and a major concavity is certain to form beneath the grill, thereby reducing the capacity of the bucket by a substantial amount. This course of action is not recommended.
