Am I Weird Because I like Garbage Trucks?

Having worked for the past 5 years developing software for the waste industry I have built up a certain affinity for spotting the Garbage truck and saying that's "Insert Waste Company Here" isn't that a nice truck. The other classic is "look at that bin that's been overfilled, I wonder if they'll get charged for that...". This may seem like a weird past time but when you spend most days trying to build intelligent software to handle all the different charging mechanisms and record all the data about what services have been rendered you end up paying attention to these sorts of things.

I was a little amused when my wife pointed out that some children also have this same problem usually 2 - 4 year old. Purhaps I'm just showing my real age :)
