Too much furniture, use the stairs and then walk away

IMG_2285Space, really is the final frontier so, you have to get rid of some furniture. In the case of the recently vacated apartment lived in by my parents-in-law until recently. Getting rid of the mattresses and other bits and bobs without paying the local council surcharge? Easy. Do what the locals do and discretely dump the unwanted mattresses and table into the stairwells that connect the floors. Most of the locals were students that studied at Sunmoon university. Upon moving out, some of them have done what I’ve described and put whole desks and chairs out in the stairwells. Sadly the downside of it all is that it’s a scorched earth policy. Disable the appliance or piece of furniture, rendering it useless.

In this case, the computer that I had a look at, it was a relic. Examination of the hard disk revealed that it had IDE connectors instead of the more contemporary SATA connections. Not so good since I was in need of a harddisk. The pictures you see in this entry were all taken in one building. Chairs, a low table and mattresses, you could if you wanted to decked out a whole apartment in relative, albeit dusty comfort.

  1. Those wardrobes no one could move them! Not removalists from Tienjin nor Fuzhou (if such truck transport exists). Even Sydney, the Gold Coast, it would cost a pretty penny as Malcolm, one of our cricketers (and a removalist) said.
    Best wishes to Jiang’s olds 🙂

    • Well, for some reason, someone had moved in with a wardrobe and then stashed it in the stairwell when they graduated and left. I haven’t looked but, I would suspect you could hide a body in one of those and no-one would realise until Summer time when the flies start amassing.
