“Stupid” award of the week

drawersWhat’s wrong with this picture?

Yes, there is a drawer missing. There wasn’t a drawer missing when we put these two sets out in front of our house this afternoon, free to a good home.

We’re moving, so we’re taking the opportunity to give away what we don’t need. These two little sets of drawers have served me well, but it’s time to update and get a proper dressing table.

So out they went. In our area, good used furniture placed out on the nature strip usually lasts from 30 seconds to 30 minutes. I like the thought of someone coming across it and taking it home to be useful again.

But when we looked after a while to see if the drawers were gone, we saw this: some bright spark had taken away just one drawer, meaning that chest of drawers is now useless for anyone else. Stupid as all get out!

  1. Sure is a very odd thing to do. Now I will drive myself crazy trying to figure out what someone’s going to do with one drawer

    • That’s the only thing I could think of, too. Then I wondered still why you would take only one of the boxes. And of course, no one wanted an incomplete unit, so we had to bring it in, break it up and throw it away in the end.
