How to Take the Garbage Out in the Most Canadian Way Possible

Dec 21, 2012 By Abraham

When Jane Ladele reminded her husband that the garbage was about to get picked up and theirs wasn’t out at the curb yet, he rushed to take it out. But it just so happens he had been about to take a shower.

Being the Canadian that he is, his state of undress was of no concern, despite the temperature being well below zero…

    Me and three 10 year old boys are still laughing!! So much for hiding behind the bin when the car drove by so no one would see him!!! The whole world is watching you now!

    1. Rachel G says:

      I have been known to take the trash out barefoot in shorts and a t-shirt in MI winter. not like you’re out there for long.

      because you cant laugh of the little things in life……you probably hate puppies & kittens too. live life to its fullest and when you see this find the humour the entire family got from it.

      his wife posted this, he never knew she was filming as he was doing this…..take your negativity somewhere else, it’s a hilarious clip that’s all nothing more why dissect it, you must be a real party pooper :( try laughing a bit it help remove lines on your face

      They are drinking beer and surround by thousands of others with heaters around the facility. Temperature may be -20 in Green Bay, but it’s above 0 in that crowd.

      1. John says:

        Sorry. As a Canadian I probably should have assumed that this guy had AT LEAST 1 beer for breakfast and before heading out into the cold. That part of my above argument is now irrelevant.

  2. Adrian says:

    OMG .. I laughed so hard when he hid from the truck .. hahaha .. Epic .. and I have also done this .. just not with so much grace .. well done fellow Canuck !! Starts wisers slow clap !!

  3. Earl Wyman says:

    As a Canuck living in Hawaii for the past 30 years, this brought laughter to my heart and a reminder of what a tough lot Canadians are. I kept thinking, “I wish I had done that!” Yes, the comment that life is too short made me think how boring we can be…and I hope I’m not!

  4. Phyrie says:

    That was GREAT! I LOVED the duck behind the bin. My husband said, “But what about all the houses around him? Can’t they see him?” Sometimes you just don’t care what your neighbours think, I guess! Very funny, and thanks for sharing! :D

    A Good Laugh Makes Life More Interesting. I would think anyone peeking out their curtains would have a GOOD Laugh for Sure on this One.

  6. Kathy says:

    this is great…thanks for the laugh, sometimes I race out in my pj’s with the garbage can too…LOL and I am from NB…I never seen this though…hahaha…Great Guy !!!!

  7. Lyse says:

    From Ontario and I winter in FL now. I remember my Dad doing this, wearing just his robe (over nothing!) on a very windy morning…We lived just outside Montreal at the time. Thanks for the laugh!

  8. Weez says:

    It’s all mind over matter. He had what counts – the boots and the hat. What about the people who do the polar bear swim? Now THEY are crazy!

  9. Tim says:

    I’m still not able to get over the fact their trash comes with snow on the road… and all I get when we’ve had snow for 2 weeks is a we can’t make it to your location message…

  10. Rae says:

    @ Tim, if they did that in Canada then much of the trash would not be picked up for about eight months of the year!!!! lol…

  11. Seamus Obamaugh says:

    I wonder how the wife would have reacted if her husband had posted a video of her taking the garbage out in her underwear? Useless crone.
