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?
Surprise! It’s a Basement
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.
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 Hidden Cottage
Homes with a lot of history often have a lot of secrets both inside and outside. And for the ground around this historical, Georgian home, there must have been a lot of overgrowth to conceal an entire cottage.
But this certainly must have been an interesting find for this family and also a potentially useful one. The homeowners had a lot of options as to what they could do with an old groundskeeper's cottage or how they could renovate it.
Surprise, It’s Plutonium
Now this is perhaps one of the rarest (and most toxic) things you could find left behind on someone’s premises and it’s also illegal.
Because plutonium is a radioactive substance, it cannot be legally owned by anyone. The questions for this find are nearly endless. Plutonium is the most toxic when it is inhaled so thankfully they had a geologist for a neighbor who could help them figure out what the substance was and how to get rid of it.
