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.
Many people have boxes of random items in their house but these new homeowners found boxes of other people’s random stuff in their new place. Reddit user R12356 said that they found fifteen boxes of pine cones when they were insulating the attic.
It’s assumed that the pine cone collection must have been for crafts. They also found some toys from the 50s behind the piece of drywall, which must have been a fun find too.
A Stinky Discovery?
Combine strange, spooky, and stinky and that’s what you have when you find a giant, scary, smelly voodoo doll. After moving into a previously occupied home, Reddit user Withcinnamon noticed a bad smell coming from their attic. Upon investigation, there was a very, very bizarre discovery.
It certainly must have left them with many disturbing questions. It would probably be best for everyone’s mental and physical health to have it removed.
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.
A Big Scare
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.
