When you move into a new home, you certainly hope that everything will be clean, safe, and comfortable. But unfortunately, some dwellings come with shocking surprises. Reddit user Kralcster confessed that, when they moved into their new home, they found something they’d rather not have anywhere near them.
They discovered an unexploded parachute bomb from WWII! They had to call the bomb squad to come and safely dispose of it. What a disturbing welcome home present.
A Sentimental Commode
Many people can keep a healthy distance from what they do for a living, but others become very attached to their work. Reddit user I-amthegump (yes, this is an actual user name) mentioned that one of their tenants, who was a plumber, once had a very interesting day on the job.
The plumber must have been a big fan because he decided to keep the toilet in his home after that! We guess if you are a big enough fan, nothing of your idol’s personal items is too over-the-top.
Some Nice Leftovers
Popsicles. Pop. Toilet Paper. Lawn care items. You’ve heard some pretty awful leftovers and discoveries in a home, but how about these rather pleasant leftovers that Reddit user Witchymuggle found? It wasn’t anything dirty, disgusting, disturbing, or expensive to remove or clean up.
In fact, you’d really say it’s uncommon kindness and consideration of this previous owner to leave helpful and even fun items behind for those moving into the home after you. Rather random items yes, but rather considerate? Also yes. Some faith in humanity is restored.
Close Call Encounters
Finding something dangerous in your new home is not the surprise that Reddit user elaniRyder or their mom were looking for. It would be interesting to know what other things these crazy previous homeowners left behind.
Having a dull machete nearly fall on your head would be a pretty terrifying experience as dull blades can oftentimes be the most dangerous. So, whoever left their dull machete behind must not have needed it for quite a long time…since it was dull anyway.
A Raccoon Door
Imagine that instead of chasing the neighborhood raccoons away from your garbage can, you welcome them into your home. It must have been a big surprise for Reddit user Bojinglejangle to suddenly see street raccoons walk through her friend’s door.
Now, raccoons are cute but it’s hard to imagine letting wild ones in through a doggy door. The biggest concern would be if they could get into your house when you weren’t at home to supervise them.
