Before heading out for errands and lunch yesterday, I had my manfriend help me drag my old dining table and three remaining (rickety) chairs out into the driveway.
It was a bit on the low-class side, I know.
We were gone for about three hours.
As we turned into my neighborhood, I asked "How much you wanna bet that table is gone?"
He said something to the effect of "It's not like someone can just put that in the car. It might not be gone yet."
We had speculated earlier in the day that maybe part of it would be gone. Like maybe the table would be gone, but the chairs would still be there or vice versa.
When we got home...
Gone. All of it.
Which is pretty good considering I live on a very quiet street in a very quiet neighborhood.
Now I have this old desk in my garage. Maybe if I drag that out into my driveway next weekend...
Manfriend said there is going to be someone driving by my house every Sunday looking to see what I have left in the driveway.
So how would you go about getting rid of stuff like that? I put the desk on craigslist and got no hits. I put the desk and the table on a company classifieds listing and got no hits.
The driveway really seems to work.
