On Wednesday I thought my day was going good when I found $5 while digging in the trash.

But I was driving on listening to Los at ~11pm, and sitting on the side of the road facing the street there was a wheelchair, just sitting there no one around or anything.

So I stop, looks nearly new, so I put it to a vote
All in favor or me taking .... I
All opposed.........
the motion carries.

Fold it up, throw it in the back of the truck (good thing I kept the tailgate on) and now its sitting in my living room.

I saw on mcguiver that you can grind that up and make a torch out of it since it is magnesium.

Some poor handicapped guy probably just had to go to the bathroom, and crawled a few feet to a secluded spot off the road...

It was on side of the road in the area that IF YOU LEAVE YOU SHIT HERE IT IS TRASH AND OPEN TO GETTING HAULED AWAY FOR SCRAP where trashcans, old appliances and stuff are left.

Who keeps thier wheelchair on the side on the road at 11pm on a weekday.

It was put to a voice vote, if someone had left it to crawl off and use the bathroom they could have opposed the motion.

I think it was magnesium wheelchair wheels and rust from a paint can put into a tube from a bike frame, but I might be wrong.

He was freaking handicapped, there he was wiping his ass with his only hand and some asshole stole his wheelchair. Had to finish wiping, pull his pants up, try to fasten the buttons and zip the zipper (try that with one hand you *****)get up on his stumps and get back to the road. By the time he got back, you were driving away with your radio on too loud to hear him

You don't have a hair on your ass, if you don't make it into a Tactical Wheelchair for a few photo ops before you get rid of it.



ETA: You gotta have something to go along with the ammo fort pics.

I bought a mint racing wheelchair for $40, and Im not handicapped. Why you might ask. It is a great upper body workout. If you go out on the weekend, chicks dig it. You can also talk a lot more trash, as 80% of most jerks wont fight a guy in a chair. Its a no win situation. They win, oh big man. They lose, they got their ass beat by a crip. When its time to go to disney, everyone in your party goes to the front of the line.

Wheelchairs are expensive items that are often a big stretch for fixed income folks to buy. There's a chance that some kids may have stolen that chair from a retiree or handicapped person who cannot afford to replace it, or maybe it fell from a wheelchair rack on a car or something. The right thing to do would be to put up a sign saying that you'd found it or place an ad in the local classifieds. There may well be someone very worried over how they're going to pay to replace that chair right now.

If you don't get any response, sell it as a piece of medical equipment, not for scrap. Or donate it to the local VFW/American Legion. Nice tax break, anyway.

In the meantime, learn to do wheelchair tricks. You can kick it back on two wheels and wheelie around everywhere. You can also spin around really fast in a circle on two wheels. The ultimate move is the "Warren Keyes, Please" where you kick the chair up into a wheelie, fall backwards, catch yourself with one arm and then push yourself back up into a wheelie.

Or take it to a DAV center and give it to them ( tax free donation ). If it's in like new condition as you state ... I am fairly certain it would be a much appreciated 'upgrade' to some poor soul who has sat in his for 16 hours a day for years.

Nothing worng with dumpster diving..I found abunch of shelving about $2000 worth and the security guard pulled up and said go ahead and take them...I didnt have a truck at the time so I had to leave them. I know a cop that goes dumpter siving on duty..He found a shotgun and a few other expesnive items like a high dollar electron micrscope i think once.

Im gonna bet it was abandonned also probaly thrown to the curb becuase it belonged to a Deceased family member or Maybe the owner WALKED OFF and forgot it?

Taxman, busted your ass yet trying any of this?



+1 on trying to locate the owner or donating it to the VFW. Karma can be a bitch sometimes.
