FREE!!! WORKS FINE!!!
Even before I moved to San Francisco, I noticed that this city is, among other things, the Capital of Things Left on the Street for Anyone to Take.
Generally, the offerings are overwhelmingly of the microwave variety, but I’ve seen everything from a hedge clipper to a large steel desk (which I briefly paused to consider somehow dragging two blocks back to my apartment) abandoned on the streets of San Francisco accompanied by friendly notes written by their former owners.
Now, technically, the Christmas tree I saw this evening on Church probably isn’t up for grabs, but the vacuum cleaner looks like it is. Plus, it made a nice tableau.
I wonder if this forlorn appliance’s final task was sweeping up needles fallen from its new companion in homelessness. Oh, the awful irony.
