You may have seen some strange things in your neighbor’s house but did you ever discover a secret apartment? Reddit user Eagle206 mentioned that their friend (who worked at an old school) stumbled upon a fully furnished apartment inside the school. That’s one way to feel more at home at school.
The apartment dated back to the 1900s and was presumed to belong to the caretaker of the school at that time. It’s amazing what can be discovered when you’re least expecting it.
Do You Speak Chinese?
Either the previous owners or someone who lived in the home at one time must have had some Chinese background to have had newspapers in the language.
The fact that they were “hidden” though is a bit more suspect (also the fact that they were hidden in an advent is interesting) and makes you wonder why. It would be interesting to know what date the newspapers were from and for the new homeowners to find a Chinese speaker and find out what they say.
Hit It With Your Shoe!
Finding any large creature or insect in your home is startling (well, depending on what sort of person you are) but at least this was a fake one.
Spiders usually do little harm (unless they are a Black Widow, Brown Recluse, or other poisonous species) other than scaring us half to death. If possible, it’s nice to let the little creeps free outside but it’s understandable if this woman wanted to grab the nearest shoe and destroy that (fake) spider!
A Fair to Remember
There can be some creepy finds in houses but sometimes there can be a find that is both unusual and fascinating. Reddit user ren_grossmans_ghost commented that, inside an old cigarette box inside their home, they found some old stamps but they also found something else.
Also inside the box was a ticket to the Chicago World’s Fair from 1934! So make sure you check the old boxes in your home, you may have something special in there.
Finding something unexpected in your house can be a pleasant surprise, but it can also be a startling or unsettling one. Reddit user klydefr0gg certainly stumbled upon some very exciting and highly confidential stuff!
The fact that the mysterious items were found on the other side of a broken lock in their home only makes it that eerier. But honestly, it's kinda cool to learn your house used to be a CIA hideout!
