yeah Trumpy,
i guess we all have the same 'don't ask/ don't tell' policy when we crawl around in people's homes

and i've seen some really wierd stuff, not to mention comming eye to eye with some interesting creatures, but a singing deer ....well, let's just say it made my day!

Steve,
I was doing a job in a house, under the floor, running a new submain to a shed.
I came across a stack of books in the lower floor area.
To say the least, the female part of the relationship had placed her partners stack of "magazines" under the floor.
The guy would never have known where they went.
I didn't look though, I had work to do, besides, they were pretty mouldy being in the damp.

good one Trumpy

years ago i was running a line up mutual closets basement to attic, in a Masonic temple. There were some tin boxes stacked up in one closet, strong enough to support me, so i stood on them.

Except i lost my balance, and fell, along with a few of those tins , one of which popped open to reveal skeletal bones

I 'fessed up to one of the members i knew there, and asked 'so why the skeleton in the closet'? to which he replied 'he didn't pay his dues'....

More likely, the guy was hiding them there and forgot about them; any woman I know (who would be married to a man) would have just thrown them out.
