    I found a corpse floating in the water shortly after starting this morning, I had to retrieve it with the bucket of the excavator as the ditch was too deep for the proper authorities to safely pick it up. I was asked not to take any photography of it due to pending notification of next of kin and for investigation purposes, but I did manage to snap one pretty quick before I was asked not too.
    The body of the deceased was found floating upright, but with the head under water suggesting there was a severe neck injury involved and there was no identification on the body, but I was later told that the body is that of one Donald D. Duck, aged 3 years, he leaves behind 3 next of kin, Huey, Dewey and Louie.

    That was funny. I bet you find allot of trash in those ditches. Where are you taking it all to? Does it have allot of trash in it?

    I took it seriously till about 3/4 of the way through it.

    Sad thing is my buddy's company was mowing at a condo last year and one of the guys found a man face down just outside a door. The guy who found him walked up to him cuz he thought the guy needed help. NOPE. Self inflicted gun shot. The guy fell on top of the gun. When the worker rolled him over he saw what a pistol can do.

    A lot of marijuana grow-op waste, meth lab waste, T.V's/computers and general scum of society's garbage. It all goes to an old gravel put that was owned by the City, and it all gets dumped there and eventually bull dozed and flattened out for the next season.
