Culture Shock
Frankie Georgiano of NYC Sanitation Department was a welcome site along 5th avenue each Monday morning. Always happy. Always smiling. Often giving New Yorkers a great joke or comedy act to bring with them to their dreaded boring desk jobs. Frankie never said a word when anyone littered, instead he nonchalantly pick up the item and toss it in the can. This is his job and he loves it.

However today Frankie didn't show up to work and was greatly missed. Turns out Frankie finally received his long awaited week long paid vacation. Spending it at home in his NYC apartment, because his weekly measly salary from the Sanitation Department won't afford him any other choice but New Jersey.

He is finally getting to see what it is like to spend daytime working hours behind a glummy desk! To be able to see why the many faces frowned as they walked by him each and every morning.

There's only one problem....

...the problem is no matter where Frankie works or sits, he makes the most of the job and falls in love with it!

Boy George the one-time Culture Club singer was ordered to spend five days working for the NYC Department of Sanitation after pleading guilty in March to falsely reporting a burglary at his lower Manhattan apartment. The officers who responded found cocaine instead.

Thank you George O'Dowd for allowing the Sanitation Department to give our Frankie a much deserved week off. Thank you for opening our eyes in realizing our desk jobs aren't so drilling. Finally, thank you for....

"Hey! Watch out for that nasty evil rat behind you!"

    Too funny Margie. I read on poor Boy G yesterday and it seems the press is really making it hard for him! Did you see the things he wanted to do for his time instead of picking up garbage?

    "He petitioned to spend the time helping teenagers make a public service announcement. Among his other proposals to the court: holding a fashion and makeup workshop, serving as a D.J. at an HIV/AIDS benefit or doing telephone outreach"

    Seems the judge felt this better suited him!

    Love the video! Have a great day!

    Hey Woozie, Yes the rat seems to be having Richard Gere Gerbil fantasies.
