What is the most surprising thing you've found whilst cleaning? This can be a good or bad surprise.
While staying with my aunt one summer, my sister and I found a portion of dried up lasagna behind the couch. My aunt was a terrible cook and her young son tried to feed it to the family dog. The dog would have nothing to do with it, so he dumped it behind the couch and forgot about it. We couldn't blame him,.. yea, it was that bad.

When I worked at an environmental camp, I lived in a lodge in the woods with some of the other instructors. No matter what I told them, they never put noodles, cereal, etc into plastic containers so the mice couldn't get into them. I was always finding holes in the boxes. One day when I was cleaning my room, I moved the boots I had not worn for a while from under the edge of the bed so I could sweep and one boot rattled. I guess you've probably already figured out what I found. The bottom was full of macaroni noodles.
I once found a twenty dollar bill in the wash cycle. That was a real good surprise. I used it to treat my hubby and I to lunch. I guess cleaning "pays off."
When we bought our home we went to clean the fireplace out and found a woman's purse stuffed up the chimney. There were the usual items a woman carries inside, but also an engagement ring with a HUGE diamond. Fortunately it also had her wallet and drivers license, so we attempted to contact her. We couldn't reach her so turned the purse and items over to the authorities. I found it very unusual, as her drivers license revealed she was a relatively young woman, and not one known to have ever owned or resided in the house.
Once while vacuuming, I found a snake. There was a small round rug inside the back door and when I lifted it, there was a snake coiled up underneath the rug. I yanked open the sliding door, the snake slithered out, and I sat down and shook for a few minutes.

What is the funniest thing you've witnessed but couldn't laugh outright because it would have...been rude?I was walking across a little foot bridge with a very expensive camera in my hand. I wasn't looking where I was going and ended up missing the bottom step. I was more worried about...
