FREE There’s Nothing Wrong With It

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 10:29 am

I can’t recall many times where I’ve stopped a car to pick up something on the side of the road. I remember my dad stopping to snatch some foamy mats that he put down in our basement so I could practice tumbling when I was little. I used to be able to do back flips down there. Now I think I can touch the ceiling without even jumping.

The other night, we were driving down a very annoying street we call “Sin Haven” on our way home. Something caught my husbands’ eye so he turned around to check it out. I was like “why do you want to go down this street again?” Turns out there was a toilet in someone’s front yard with a sign that said “FREE there’s nothing wrong with it.” It seemed well maintained and clean so we took it apart, dumped the water onto their front yard and loaded it into our car. We took the sign too. It was a strange moment; picking up a toilet on the side of the road at 11:30 at night is not a common occurrance.

Why did we need a toilet? Well, almost any toilet is probably better than the one at our new place. I don’t think the previous owner cleaned it at all in the 20 years he lived there. It is really disgusting. Our “new” toilet can’t get in there soon enough! I can’t wait until it’s installed. Yay free toilet!
