I dunno, assuming the lawn mower was on his property, it was out of line for the person to assume it was junk and take it without permission. If it was on the curb, then yeah. However, it's also not smart to leave something like that unsecured...that's just asking for trouble.

    Re: What (besides politics) irritates you?

    yeah that's why I did add the caveat of "depending on the layout." if it's one of those garages that basically abuts the curb, or has a driveway of maybe like 10 feet, I can see why someone driving around curb hunting for a few days and saw it not moving over those days might think it was junk

    I don't think the word "abuts" gets used enough. I'm going to add it to my regular repertoire.

    It was right against my garage door. Standard driveway so a good 10 yards from the street. I feel if they noticed it for a couple days, all the more reason to ask “hey you throwing that out? Looking to get rid of it?”

    What about the lawnmower's proximity to the garbage cans? That could throw someone off also.

    Still hope the leaky gas catches fire.

    There's an episode of How I Met Your Mother like this lol

    okay, okay.

    I will say though: have you ever actually interacted with one of the junk people? I'd say that if you were going to give it to them upon their asking anyway, I'd consider it a victory that they just took it instead of having to have that interaction with them at all. the junk people are very very strange.

    Yeah, but if the person asked you, there's a chance you could say no. That chance is eliminated if it is just stolen.

    My good friend is a garbage picker. He's not in the least strange (I mean, aside from the whole garbage picking). It's not because he needs the junk or $ (I mean, he has a summer house on Martha's Vineyard). He just likes to see what he can find. He's out every night, then lists the shit he finds on craigslist. His garage is just full of his garbage picking finds.

    The lady that goes through my neighborhood (you can hear her car a mile away), now she's a strange one that you wouldn't want to interact with.

    Both valid points, junk people arent exactly social creatures. As I said, not too irritated it’s gone so much as someone stole it broad daylight. Part of me is relieved I don’t have to mess with it now.

    aside from that, mrs. lincoln, how was the play?

    i'm sure he's a good friend. sounds like he's doing fine, money-wise.

    he goes out at night and picks up garbage off people's curbs, then stores it in his house/garage. we all have hobbies and his certainly isn't hurting anyone.

    gonna go with the rat test here though

    Our local landfill has an area where you can drop off items that you don't want, but aren't quite trash. There are lurkers there that will swarm you as you pull in, and start grabbing stuff from your car as soon as you open the doors.

    You really wouldn't know it to meet him.
    He comes off as a normal, educated, professional guy.
    Super nice. Just has some quirks, I guess!

    Not the lurk part, but he'll take stuff to their drop off and come back with someone else's crap (they're in Boston).

    Prefer to dump alone at work.

    Go into the bathroom, someone else is in a stall. No problem I'll come back.

    Go back an hour later, someone else dropping one. Ugh. Okay I'll take a piss then come back.

    Come back an hour later, it's empty, sweet! I don't even sit down and someone else comes in and sits in the next stall.

    This is absolute insanity. You’re a grown ass man, it’s just pooping, everyone does it. And how would anyone know it’s you?

    I knew I was gonna get that reaction.

    I didn't really have to go that bad, was just trying to get one in before I had to head home, pick up my daughter, etc.

    And there's nothing wrong with wanting to be discrete. Shouldn't bother you.

    Re: What (besides politics) irritates you?

    I just prefer not to have to hear the grunts, gasps and noises from other people. Of course it's natural, but if I can avoid it, why not make the attempt? I'm sure other people would appreciate the same consideration.

    Besides, most public bathrooms are hideous. People in general are filthy animals. Someone else will clean the mess!

    Came back from a work trip to find out somebody ate the entire bag of frozen meatballs I’d bought before I left. Mother fuckers. Fuck me for thinking “if you didn’t buy it you won’t eat it”

    Lot of natural things that people do that I would not care to be in the same room for. Pooping is pretty high up there.

    Re: What (besides politics) irritates you?

    I don't know, I guess I can appreciate privacy in pooping. When you're out and about though, it's just a risk you have to be willing to live with. But if I gotta drop a deuce, I don't care if the fucking Pope is in the next stall, I'm doing my business regardless.

    I will poop if there are other people pooping, but I don't like to be seen. So if there is someone using a urinal or washing their hands (during both pre and post-deuce) I will wait it out.
