Now, this is a find with some tantalizing (albeit slightly sketchy) history. The new homeowners may have known about the previous homeowner’s spy-like profession before they moved in. Or, perhaps the previous homeowners were relatively transparent about what they did for a living, just in case they had accidentally left behind any, em, questionable objects or equipment.
Hopefully, the previous owners were working for the right government. But, hey, maybe the new homeowners can put that old equipment to good use.
Who could these previous owners have been? Spies? FBI agents? Avantgarde psychologists? The questions will never end.
After all, the average person doesn’t own an electroshock therapy kit. Electroshock is typically thought of as being used as a means of interrogation, intimidation, or, frankly, unhealthy psychological therapy to help people learn to break bad habits (much like a dog with a shock collar). The fact that this was from the 1900s, though, makes it an interesting piece of history.
Now many children (and even adults) like the glow-in-the-dark, stick-on stars. They light up a dark room and allow you (with the ability to place them however you want) some creativity. However, the stick-on, glow-in-the-dark stars are not everyone’s home decor aesthetic and can be seen by some as a bit childish or kitschy.
So these new homeowners may have had their work cut out for them in trying to remove all of these stars. Good luck!
Finding a clown nose behind your old dishwasher seems innocent enough except for (as with so many of these strange items found in other people’s homes) the questions it brings up.
Was the red clown nose leftover from Halloween or a costume party? Was at least one of the previous homeowners a clown as a part-time job? The placement of the object even causes one to ask, was there, at one time, a clown hiding behind the dishwasher?
Some Family Therapy Might Be Needed
Leaving behind the ashes of your deceased parent in your old home is truly quite strange.
One would think that the ashes of a loved one would be one of the first things you would pack with conscientiousness and care unless these previous owners weren’t particularly close with their late father. Needless to say, it would be an awkward phone call for the new homeowners to make, having to inform the previous homeowners to please come and pick up their dad.
