Some people collect stamps, others vintage toys. But one man’s peculiar hobby of sifting through friends’ garbage took the neighborhood by storm, leading to an unexpected and startling revelation. Here is what he had to say:
He Was a Collector
The man said, ‘I’ve always loved collecting things that belonged to other people.’
It Was a Hobby
He was 32 years old, and since he could remember, he enjoyed collecting other people’s things. It was his hobby. He particularly sought out stuff owned by his neighbors and didn’t see a problem with going through their trash cans. After all, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
He Would Go Through People’s Trash
At night, he would sneak out and search through his neighbor’s trash, hoping to find little keepsakes. He liked to be reminded of the people he knew, and since they were throwing out the items, he saw it as a win-win situation.
It Wasn’t Illegal
When his neighbors and friends put their trash out on the curb, he would rifle through it, careful not to make too much noise. It wasn’t illegal in his country, so he felt perfectly fine to do it, but he knew that some people might find it a bit strange.
He Got Caught
One day, he was going through his neighbor’s trash when her boyfriend rocked up. He had never been caught before, so he was nervous when spotted in the headlights of his car. The boyfriend was his friend, so he hoped he would be understanding.
It Was Awkward
The man made up a fake excuse why he was going through his friend’s girlfriend’s trash, but the boyfriend was suspicious. The man swore the boyfriend to secrecy in return for the truth… he would find keepsakes that reminded him of his friends and stored them in his locked basement, but it wasn’t malicious!
He Cussed Him Out
The man said, ‘He exploded on me and called me names, insinuating that I was the neighborhood creep.’
Was He in the Wrong?
He was devastated. Not only was the boyfriend mad at him, but he told his girlfriend and all their friends, breaking the promise. Half his friends took the boyfriend’s side, along with his girlfriend, and the man got really upset. He turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Had Thoughts
One person said, ‘Snooping in another person’s trash is not only an invasion of their privacy but also really, really creepy.’
Another commented, ‘I’m not sure I really understand the motive here, bud…’
More People Chimed in
Others thought, ‘There’s nothing wrong with rescuing usable items from trash.’
One reader found it so absurd to the point it was amusing, ‘I actually laughed when you said you keep the things locked in your basement, it’s like the beginning of a horror film.’
A Final Word
A final person commented, ‘It’s creepy, and you should start to figure out why you do this.’
