It's about the impossibility of disposing of a trash can. The setting is a suburban household. The dad (mid 40's, depressed, paunch) is constantly harangued about keeping an old beat-up trash can in the garage. Week after week he tries to throw it out with the regular trash. The garbagemen always ignore it. Of course, they ignore it. It's a trash can. Eventually, the guys goes nuts and smashes the trash can into a million pieces. That night he finally sleeps well and reconnects with his family. The next morning the can is back intact in the garage --- a la Twilight Zone.
