Ardmore Business Owner Verbally Accosted By Bike Riding Dumpster Diver
Yes, dumpster diving. Artists do it, pickers do it, people who are hungry and homeless will do it.
No one knows what this guy's story is, other than he targets the dumpsters of the small businesses along Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore.
Sherry has nicely asked this guy before to stay out of her dumpster. No one knows what he is hunting for - whether it is cans or bottles, buried treasure, or food. However, if someone nicely asks you to get out of their dumpster and stay out, you would think that would be enough. But it isn't for this guy, and he gets nasty. He also throws the trash around, which means more work work local business owners.
Yesterday afternoon, mystery man on the bicycle was at it again. So once again Sherry and neighbors from adjacent businesses go outside. This guy was asked to get out of the dumpster and this time he really verbally accosted Sherry.
That is crap. Everyone who knows Sherry knows she is one of the nicest people out there. I don't think she deserves this behavior, and the fact that this guy is angry enough to unleash the verbal diatribe on Sherry.....is cause for concern, don't you think?
I don't know who this guy is, he did not want Sherry taking his photo, though.
If you catch this guy in the act, just call the police. There is no reasoning with him apparently and he doesn't respect the business owners asking him NOT to do this. No one knows what he is looking for, so there is no point in leaving whatever out of the dumpster to the side for him. I wonder if he knows or if it is just some sort of compulsion.
Whatever. Not my job to analyze this guy's motives. That is for the LMPD. All I know is the small business owners of Ardmore in Lower Merion put up with enough other stuff on a daily basis just existing in Lower Merion Township, let lone struggling to survive in a crappy economy. They don't need to deal with this guy too.
Enough is enough.
And yes, in that one photo, the guy is giving Sherry Tillman the finger.
