Things you Find by the Side of the Road

I was driving to work in the morning. I saw this in the distance.


Keep in mind, I travel a rural backroad to get to work. There was a bush lot on one side of the road and a field on the other. I got closer.


Yup, it's a chair. At the side of the road.


It doesn't even look that bad. I wonder what the story is behind this?

The chair remained for about three more days. Then it was gone.

  1. That is bizarre. Was there no matching footstool?

  2. Chair looks in reasonable condition from the front at least. I wonder what the story is!

  3. So funny! I bet someone has it in their front parlour by now.

  4. Perhaps it was just hitching a ride.

  5. I wonder if it fell off someone's trailer as they were moving or something? OR...maybe the wife said "Hit the road, Jack, and take your things with you"...and perhaps he packed on everything he owned but could only carry the chair that far? Just a thought---
    Have a wonderful weekend. xo Diana

  6. JP, It just amazes me that people will move things without strapping them down. I am a real stickler about making sure things can not fall off the truck. I would just hate to be behind someone dropping furniture. LOL. Such an odd sight by the road like that. :):) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  8. A little too much partying and alcohol? It is a very curious sight!

  9. I work in so many clients with bedbugs I would be hitting the gas and flying by as fast my car could go. No furniture on the side. Nope!

    1. oh yuck. It also reminds me of that Big Bang Theory episode where Penny picked up a chair on the sidewalk and there was something living in it.

    2. Yeah. You would need "bus pants" for a chair like that.

  10. I'm thinking that was someones favorite chair and he left for whatever reason so it got tossed.

  11. My area doesn't have roadside large trash pick up (or trash pickup either) so I never see these

    1. This wasn't garbage pick up. This was just sitting at the side of the road, not close to anybody's house.
