Dear Miss Manners,

I'm a little unclear on the proper etiquette for a particular situation. This morning as I was carrying my lawn & leaf bag full of household refuse to the dumpster, I met a man standing next to the same dumpster. As I smiled and wished him a good morning, he grabbed the sides of the dumpster, boosted himself up, and hopped inside. Thinking it rude to throw trash into a dumpster which is currently occupied by a person (and, as a sidenote, being impressed by his athletic ability), I asked if he'd mind if I let my bag of trash on the flat surface directly next to the dumpster. He glanced at me briefly and continued opening bags of trash. I wished him a good day and left my bag next to the dumpster, thinking fondly of my shredding machine.

I do wish this had been covered in the text, as such surprises on the test are somewhat unsettling.

Regards,
Me
