Many homes have basements. But, depending on the region and country in which you live, certain homes may be built without a shelter or extra space underneath. Reddit user Enkibean said they bought their new home, believing it did not have a basement at all, only to discover that it did indeed…have a basement.
Those who were selling the home forgot to mention it explicitly but it was finally unveiled on moving day as the boxes began filling the home.
Old 7up Cans
Finding anything in your home that was left by someone else can feel eerie, but thankfully in this case…it was just 7up. Except, they were really, really old cans of 7up. You have to wonder why the previous owners didn’t want to finish it.
Reddit user RathrDash1ng said that this particular edition of 7up was from the 80s and that the seals on the tops of the cans did not stand the test of time, leading to the contamination of the liquid. Sounds pretty gross actually and worthy of the trash.
Now, this one’s pretty disgusting, it’s almost a violation. Reddit user Wompguinea had a very unfortunate and highly unpleasant experience when they found someone’s old underwear (that of course didn’t belong to anyone currently living at the home). It’s hard to imagine what it was like to accidentally pick up old underwear that belonged to a stranger.
Yuck! Leaving behind your nasty, old underwear almost seems intentional, but hopefully, it was just an accident. Be sure to take your items with you when you leave.
The Good Dog
Imagine finding a dog waiting for you when you move into your new home. Now, depending on if you’re a dog person, this might be the best thing that could be left behind for a new homeowner.
But, considering the neglect of the previous owners, it is also pretty sad. Happily, not only did Reddit user Iconana get a new best friend, but the Great Dane finally got to be in a home where he was loved and wanted. What a happy ending indeed.
A Weird Carpeting Secret
There are certainly worse and weirder things to find under your carpet but 64 palm frond crosses are certainly random. As usual, this brings up many questions as to who the previous owners were and what their lifestyle might have been.
It certainly isn’t every day (or every year for that matter) you find such a large number of palm frond crosses and especially, hidden under a carpet like they are not supposed to be seen. Perhaps it was their secret carpeting method?
