A Funny Thing Happened....

when David was laying some peel and stick tile.
We are renting my mother's house, so we have been doing a lot of painting and cleaning.  David pulled up the carpet in one of the bedrooms and replaced it with peel and stick tile.
The tile is made in China.
He noticed a perculiar lump between the peel-off paper and the tile itself.  Hmmm now what could that lump be?
Well it was this.
Chinese cigarettes.

That is disgusting on several levels, the first and foremost being that you found nasty cigarettes in your freaking TILE! And second, that they're allowed to smoke in the factory. Hope you tossed them fast, since they're probably as full of asbestos as the sheetrock the Chinese foisted on the U.S. a couple years ago.

I am glad it wasn't somebody's finger or balogna sandwich.
I use to run a web printing press. I once saw on the web a dragon fly perfectly perserved but flattened go streaming by. Yip-Mr Dragon fly got printed on also - what a life.:)

oh my god......
*sigh*

but i agree, at least it wasn't a finger or worse...
do you think the pocket that fell out of, and all the rest of the outfit including the cigarette's owner, could be in other boxes of tile.....

I had my house painted once by two chinese workers. They smoked a lot and left cigarette ends and boxes everywhere. It was quite disgusting. They've done a good painting job and yet I wouldn't hire these guys again.

My kids found counterfeit money in a house when working for an insulation company.

I think the cigarettes are ickier, though.
