Somehow They Switched Signals

, , , , | Working | January 5, 2019

(It’s 1989, and we are nearing the end of a move; almost the entire truck is unloaded. We moved cross-country from an apartment with cable supplied. The movers walk in with a huge TV aerial which takes both of them to carry. It is probably ten feet long and would have to be mounted on the roof of a large home. I stop them at the door.)

Me: “Hey, wait! That isn’t mine!”

Mover: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes! We moved from an apartment… We certainly didn’t own a TV aerial!”

Mover: “…”

Me: “…”

Mover: “Um, want it?”

(Hopefully, it eventually got matched up with its owner!)
