    We got a mattress from a mattress store still in the packaging, only a slight tear.

    An ISU cornhole set

    Lawn chair set with "broken table". A couple screws fixed it.

    3 coffee tables

    A couple microfiber couches.

    I've never gone out looking for stuff.

    I did find an ex's used tampon under my bed last week though. Don't ask me when or how it got there cuz I have no clue.

    I think we all know how it go there. Obviously she was planning a scavenger hunt for you to do as a couple before you guys broke up.

    Basically I took a picture of the tampon and asked her why it was under my bed. She said something along the lines of her dog must've put it there.

    That was the end of the conversation. I'll never know how exactly that dog got in the toilet/trash/whatever women do with that witchcrafted item, or if the dog really did get in the toilet/trash/whatever they do with it.

    This actually led to her becoming my ex. Her dog was hyped up like none other all the time. I couldn't be on a computer, watch tv, or do anything relaxing with that effer in the room because it was constantly jumping on me.

    Told her I didn't like her dog, she told me if I can't accept her dog, I can't accept her. Boom, we stopped talking.

    And for the record, I love dogs. I've had 5 in my family ranging from large dogs to small dogs. So it's not that I just hate animals, I love 'em if they ain't lil' *****.

    I don't dumpster dive. A 50+-year-old woman who I used to work with would go out every August 1 and bring in all of the nasty pots and pans, etc. that she'd found to work the next day. It always disturbed me a little.

    Ya, thats gross. I guess I've never thought diving in a dumpster for items a college student had just finished using. If a college student doesn't want it, no one probably wants it.

    My old best friend/roommates gf had a dog like this and I put it in the yard for 6 hours while they were gone because they decided to leave it at the house while they went to decorah. Needless to say words were had. I made sure it had water but other than that ignored it. She was ******.

    Yep, exactly. It was probably already a hand-me-down in the first place from someone who thought it was beyond the point of being used, if it's in the hands of a college student. It's not getting better from there.
