His apartment was full of plastic bags. The plastic bags were full of empty cans. His son visited him occasionally. "Dad," he said, "you have to throw out all these bags. They're a health hazard. You might get a disease. You might attract roaches. They're a safety hazard. You might trip and fall down." His dad told him not to worry.
