Kacey vs the Trash Guys–They Win

by Kay~Kacey on 4/17/2008

Why do my trash guys annoy me so much? Why is everything a battle with them?

ugly old orange chair

So I have the boys haul out this old UGLY orange chair and ottoman to the curb. For the trash guys to pick up. As an aside, guess whose chair this was?? Yes, the man of the ugly brown bedspread The only question is, why is it still in my house 10 years later? Well, not even the boys wanted it when they moved into apartments, so off it goes to the curb.

Here it is, after the trash guys have come. Again leaving my trash behind. Just like last time. And the time before.

Well, the trash guys win. I’m so not chopping this up in little pieces. I am going to clean it up though and I told SuperGuy we’re hauling this off to Goodwill tomorrow! (though it is SO ugly, I hope no one sees me with it in the truck!). SuperGuy had a rather eclectic (read ugly) set of house furnishings that he brought to this marriage. Luckily most of them are gone… He got to keep all his really cool power tools though to make things for me! Oh, and he had good kitchen stuff. We kept that too. You know, give and take in a marriage.

What’s the worst thing that your dh/significant other brought with him/her to your marriage/relationship?

My hubby was so young when we met that he had never had furniture of his own (he’d had one live-in relationship and all the furniture was hers).

Guess that means all the ugly stuff was my own. :rofl:

What is it with men and orange velveteen? Squazz’s orange SOFA went to the curb, too. But someone took it! Probably some hapless bachelor. :lips:

I can’t recall if my late husband brought anything really hideous into the marriage. Oh, there was that “love” card from his ex-girlfriend that remained in his desk drawer for nearly a year after we married (he dumped her for me). I occasionally opened the drawer (bad girl!) to see if it was there, but I never said anything to him. One day I watched him read it and toss it in the trash. He still never knew I knew about the card.

Today will be a catharsis, Kacey! You and SuperGuy load that baby up, cover it up with a huge blanket (to save some embarrassment), and get rid of it.

He brought this couch. He grew up bouncing on it. Now our child is doing the same. It is about 25 years old. He won’t let me get rid of it. Help!!! :wallbash:

Neither my husband or myself had any furniture. He had been living at his grandparent’s house and I at my parents.

My parents didn’t bless the marriage, so we got nothing from them.

His grandmother bought the contents of his great grandmother’s house and gave it to us. Some of it was junk, but some was antiques that I still have today.

Fortunately, he wasn’t attached to any of it, so as we could we replaced the junk stuff.

I honestly can’t narrow it down to just one thing. :rofl: When we married two years ago his house was filled with ugly things. Heck the man still had clothing from high school for goodness sake.

Since my husband had just returned from Germany a few months before I met him, he was living with his mother and didn’t have any furniture or much of anything else except his clothes (oh yeah, and two kids!).

We were so young we had nothing to begin with, but he does bring me the weirdest things from his walks in the woods. I’ve had skulls and vertebrae from dead animals, deer hooves, stuff like that. One thing even started smelling. Oh, it was the hooves of a dead pony that had washed up on the beach in Assateague State Park. I could not believe he brought these home to show me. And would not let me throw them out. Take them to school and show the science teacher, he says. OMG, the stench!

Country Girl April 17, 2008 at 10:25 am

I think I need to clarify!!!

The hooves had washed up, not the pony! It was a couple of hooves only.

It sounded really weird when I read it back.

:mrgreen: I got married pretty young, so neither of us had furniture, but my Manly Beef Cake had/HAS a hat that looks like a raccoon. Not a raccoon cap like Davy Crocket. Think cartoon raccoon head. It’s hideous. He insists on keeping it because he has worn it on every camping trip he’s ever been on and wants to hand it down to my son when he gets old enough for Scout Camps. lol

Huge 1960’s television/streo console, Early American cabinet. Yes, it still worked and yes, he wanted it in the bedroom, and yes, 1.5 years later , he and his TV lived happily ever after, without me………dodged that bullet….whew.

My husband didn’t bring any hideous furniture into our relationship, but he did bring a hideous poster of James Bond that he loved. Fortunately we have just passed it off to my still-single younger brother!
