Have you ever left your Christmas decorations up till January? February or March? Well, how about having a whole room dedicated to the huge holiday year-round?
Redditors replying to this post from Dreamcrusher69 found the room creepy — especially the part about Christmas music playing continually. While Christmas is certainly the “most wonderful time of the year”, part of what makes it special is celebrating it during one part of the year. However, if someone wants to keep the cheer every day of the year, why stop them?
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.
A Sharp Situation
Sometimes you need to be on guard when inspecting something inside a new place. Reddit user Bellapace said that, when they went to repair a broken pipe in her new place, they found clumps of razor blades! Sounds pretty sketchy, doesn’t it?
Who would have thought that a mid-century modern home had a slot in the medicine cabinet to discard used razor blades? Apparently, the previous owners weren’t too concerned about removing them!
As Seen on TV
Many of us have been there: It’s late at night, you're vulnerable and a commercial pops up to sell you that combination juke box-egg-slicer for only $19.99.
It sounds like the previous owners of this home weren’t so much into online shopping as they were into “as seen on TV” shopping. Honestly, as long as it hasn’t been used that much, these items sound like quite a nice thing to find left behind in your home. And if you don’t want it, there’s always a rummage sale option.
There’s nothing that reminds you that you’re using something that belonged to someone else more than them leaving their initials on everything.
Apparently, Jim ‘88 didn’t think about resale value. Yes, it would be rather hard to settle into a new home (even if it is just a rental) when the previous resident’s initials are all over the place. Maybe they were able to check their agreement and find a way to cover all the writing up. Or, they could leave their own initials and continue the tradition.
