Whether it was a prank of the previous homeowners to take this road sign or they sincerely intended to use the sign for some purpose, stealing it (which it sounds like they most likely did) is illegal. But this sounds like something that college kids would do just to entertain themselves.
The best move that the new homeowner could make would be to return the sign, if possible. Or…there’s always the option to keep it and find a creative decorative use for it too.
There Are Kitchen Drawers for That
Perhaps this set of silverware was more valuable than Reddit user Xmissxandristx thought and that’s why it was hidden inside a vent?
Or perhaps the previous owners ran out of space in their kitchen cupboards and drawers? The questions and speculations are nearly endless. At least it is something that can be put to good use, especially when you move into a new home.
Now if you found items like these (legal documents and especially someone's birth certificate), you would definitely want to return them to the previous homeowners as soon as possible.
And childhood drawings may not always demonstrate the most talent but are probably very sentimental, especially to parents. Reddit user mycrawlingeye was probably able to get in contact with the previous owners and return these important and sentimental items to them. Someday soon their daughter will need her birth certificate for a lot of life events.
Find Your Segway
When moving, it’s hard to imagine someone leaving something as fun and nifty as a segway behind. The previous owners may have simply forgotten to take it with them or maybe they didn’t want to go to the trouble of listing it for sale or packing it up.
Like Reddit user diemperdidi5 said, a segway is a pretty random object to leave behind in a home but at least it’s also something very cool (and useful) to find. Best to just hop on and enjoy!
On the Chopping Block
Definitely not a childproof home, a guillotine is perhaps one of the most eccentric and startling items you could find in someone’s home.
Thankfully, it sounds like it had not been in use and that the previous owner was indeed just eccentric and must have been interested in medieval history. For this new homeowner, however, if the guillotine was quite old, they could perhaps get an estimate on how much it might be worth. Either that or use it to chop watermelons.
