I don’t buy furniture from thrift stores, but I recognized an IKEA bedroom piece that I thought might be worth picking up. The piece had hung together, and it was at least ten years old (I doubt you can still get one today because it was constructed of actual boards as opposed to particle board material).
But the Invisalign insert that was stuck to the inside of the top drawer was a deal breaker for me.
I can put up with a lot, but this is a bridge too far (is there a pun here?).
While I am pleased someone made a donation, and that they parted with an otherwise serviceable piece of IKEA furniture, it should come down to a matter of human decency to properly dispose of something like this. A responsible person does not leave their disposable dental inserts all over the goddamned place.

In the days after she became the most-Googled candidate at the first of two Democratic primary debates this week, Marianne Williamson faced sharp scrutiny on her past statements about vaccines and mental health during combative interviews with MSNBC’s Ari Melber and CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
On Friday night, she found herself in the warm embrace of HBO’s Bill Maher.
Williamson didn’t seem to know quite what to expect when she sat down with the Real Time host midway through his first show back on the air in several weeks. He called her “too interesting to run for president” before suggesting that her spiritual philosophy “sounds like Scientology.” Taken aback, she asked, “How can you even say that?”
“It just sounds like it, I’m not saying it is,” Maher responded quickly, walking back the perceived criticism. Despite his nearly militant anti-religious stance, he seemed oddly taken with her message about a “higher power.”
Anyone who kisses his ass from now on deserves to be mocked.
