futon frame?

Ok, ok, so you haven't exactly been clammoring for the return of "Weird Items That I Find In My Building", but I thought I'd give you a little treat.

Since the crazies moved out (or, rather, were kicked out) of my building, I haven't been finding a whole lot of weird items, but this morning I saw this: a futon frame.

I know, I know, it's no plastic Frosty the Snowman, but it's the strangest thing I've seen in a while. Outside from, what I believe was, a toaster oven.

For some reason, folks love to just store things in the hallway. Granted, it's a pretty big hallyway, so it's a good place to hold things until you're ready to haul them downstairs. But, please, this is an eyesore.

I promised myself (as I rushed to buy a cup of coffee before getting on the subway) that if this was still hanging out when I came home, I'd snap a picture.

So, here it is. Where the rest of it is, I couldn't tell you.

Man, don't you love apartment living?
I'm having trash guilt myself. I bought a new mattress last week. Hung out with my old mattress in my apartment for a few days - because I didn't want to be the a**hole that put their crap onto the sidewalk before trash day. Looked up the city regulations -- no special pickup or call was needed to pickup a mattress. Lugged the mattress down 3 flights to the street. Then for some unknown reason - the trash men didn't pick up any of our trash that day. So all of our trash and my mattress are still out there. Grrrr.

But hey - at least I didn't leave my mattress in the hall for my neighbors to look at! ;)
