In our efforts to rid the shed of the junk that's accumulated over the years -- some of it that came with the house -- Skeeter and I spent part of the day going through the shed. We have a big pile of usable stuff that will go to the thrift store tomorrow, but the broken or otherwise unusable items went to the curb.
What I can't comprehend is why someone would stop to pick up the following items:
- a broken, slightly mildewy, water cooler
- an old lawn chair with broken slats
- the torn, frayed ribbons from a different lawn chair (not the chair itself; he cut off the already torn ribbons)
- a bag full of non-recyclable old plastic bottles (shampoo, dish soap, etc), courtesy of my Memaw (don't ask)
- various broken slats to a plastic accordion-style door (not enough to make a full door though)
I've stopped to pick up the odd item from the curb myself (most notably, the bakers rack currently in my shed), so it doesn't bother me. Well, mostly. The guy who knocked on the door and asked if I was bringing out more stuff kind of creeped me out. But mostly, I'm good. I put things out sometimes just because I do know that they will get picked up and used.
But the things on that list? Those have me bewildered.
