    Friday QOTW 8/1 - Move Out Best Find

    My question this week since it is move out day.

    What is the best find that you've found with things that people have thrown out?

    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.

    Re: Friday QOTW 8/1 - Move Out Best Find

    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.

    Why was her dog at your place. I have a strict your animal is your animal policy. Ain't nobody got time to clean up after their animals.

    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.
