In a truly bizarre turn of events, a man found a box of missing and disturbing items that his girlfriend had been collecting over the course of their relationship.
Some say you ought to never glance through a lady's handbag, and with good reason. As a matter of fact, it's an intrusion of privacy, and besides, you may end up discovering more than you have the stomach for! A similar guideline ought to likewise apply to strange boxes situated over closets, as one man discovered the most difficult way possible.
The unknown 21-year-old said he had been left 'genuinely scared' by what he found inside a case in his better half's room. Opening the blinds on his agitating back story in a Reddit relationship guidance thread, the man said he originally chose to have a scavenge out of "boredom".
He said, "We have been together for just over a year and we have never had any issues, apart from minor arguments that were easily resolved. Up until recently, I've never noticed anything strange about her behavior. A few days ago she left her room at uni to go to a lecture in the morning and left me in there."
"Up until that day I had never looked through her things as I've never felt the need to. She has this space above the wardrobe where she keeps boxes and stuff and I couldn't see inside them. Boredom got the better of me and I wanted to see what she was storing," he added.
Helpless to oppose his temptations, the boyfriend was stunned to discover that the container was loaded up with his old belongings, as well as some genuine bits of him. He continued: "When I opened it I found so many random things that I used to own. There were odd socks in there that she has taken. A toothbrush that I thought I had lost after our holiday."
"Bits of hair (presumably) from my comb. Toenail clippings. Receipts that I assume she stole from my wallet. She even has things like empty wrappers of food that I know were mine. There was a piece of glass in there, but I don't know where that is from. A USB phone charger. A half-used bar of soap. Boxer shorts. Used gum. A spoon. Used plasters from who knows when," he added.
Yet, on the off chance that toenail clippings, utilized gum, and a spoon aren't sufficient to give you the heebie-jeebies, then the following disclosure should tip you over the edge.
He said, "The most worrying thing was a used condom I found in there. I don't even know how she managed to keep that? And a few empty condom wrappers as well. I can't remember what else because I just put it back and left. She doesn't know I found it yet."
Uncertain what to do and clearly helpless to hear the stunning alerts sounded by the box, the man approached the general mass of Reddit for some exhortation.
He said, "My girlfriend behaves normally and this is the first time I've seen anything weird. She has never acted obsessive or creepy or anything. But then again, what else am I supposed to do? I love her so much but I am genuinely scared."
