Today, after putting a bag of dirty laundry in the laundry room to wait for an open washer, I came back to find a "free stuff" sign on all of my expensive jeans, new towels, and favorite sweatshirts. The bag was over half empty. FML

Don't take what doesn't belong to you, without speaking directly to the current owner. That *should* be rule #1. I never have understood why people will do things like this (putting the 'Free Stuff' sign on the bag of clothes) and call it a prank. That's not a prank, that's conspiracy to commit theft.

I don't see any sort of conspiracy here. There is no collusion, no tete-a-tete, no agreement between the two parties. Just one person putting up a sign, and another taking it at face value.

Just sayin'

yeah but it was also half empty and op had no intention of losing anything at is saying "its half full" really a positive? like saying "hey at least they only stole half your stuff instead of stealing nothing at all"?

Whoever did that is an asshole, but you shouldn't trust in leaving your things around so much no matter how safe a place may seem. Karma will bite that little shit in the ass.

To be fair, yeah fuck your life but on the other hand, you do kinda deserve it... So it's a case of "6 of 1 and half a dozen of the other"

I don't mean to offend, that's just my opinion, plus you've learnt a valuable life lesson. Don't leave your expensive stuff unattended.

I think he might have meant it as if your out buying expensive jeans that can be over 100$ (depends where you shop) you should be able to buy an apartment or house with a washing machine/dryer. Calm down.


#12's response was polite and correct. There was no overreaction. Being that your "joke" looks more like a critique on OP's lifestyle than a joke and that your comment as #15 looked like a bad cover-up (how many times have we all heard "calm the hell down, it was just a joke" as a means of saving face?), it's perfectly reasonable for people to respond in seriousness to your original comment. I mean bro, crack all the jokes you want on here, but for the love of Cthulhu make it a good one. No one's saying this is a serious website, we're just casually informing you that your joke was crap.


I myself am proof that just because someone has expensive clothes, it does not mean that they have a lot of money the can use to buy a washer and dryer or rent a bigger apartment or house.
I'm not rich, and i live in a tiny unit because my family can not afford a bigger place, but I have a lot of expensive clothes that I did not pay for (no, I didn't steal them, ugh) I have family friends who are rich and spoiled, and they get an entire new wardrobe for every season. Me and my sister get all the old stuff, half of it never having been worn and still having tags on them!
