Crack open that self-storage unit.
Now, we’re not suggesting you plan an elaborate heist; a caper that combines nail-biting danger and girlish moxie—though that would make a great movie with Amy Poehler, wouldn’t it? Based on your true-life story, this comedy-slash-drama would hopefully end in a wonderful romance…after a wacky misunderstanding, of course.
But to be clear, we at STORBOX are firmly against you illegally breaking into another person’s unit. Instead, ask your honey-buns nicely. Or casually insert yourself when he trots along to break out the fishing rods for your day on the lake. What could you find? Hopefully, nothing that resembles Hannibal Lector’s storage unit in The Silence of the Lambs. (But it’s better to find out sooner rather than later.)
Here are some wacky real-life examples of things discovered in self-storage units:
- Never-released Michael Jackson tunes
- Nicholas Cage’s copy of Action Comics #1
- Aretha Franklin’s clothes
- Thousands of dollars stuffed in an instrument
- Knight Rider
- A live hand grenade
- A collection of human brains
- Grandma’s body
No matter what it is, it tells you something about him. (For example, that he was way too close to Grandma. Or, conversely, that he’s going to be a millionaire once he realizes what that old comic book is worth. Hang on to that one! He’s a keeper.)
You know what would be wonderful, really? Finding evidence of a common interest. If he has a bunch of travel brochures tucked away on a shelf, and bashfully kicks the floor and says, “Oh, well…I’ve always dreamed of traveling the world…” then start planning your wedding in Switzerland.
Old glasses in a box? He was nearsighted as a child. A beautiful armoire with a real patina? He has good taste (or has been handed down some pretty fine furniture.) Brains in jars? Uh…he has a secret passion to be a brain surgeon and needs to practice? Whatever you do, don’t ignore the red flags. (And tell management about those brains. Definitely not allowed.)
Here at STORBOX, we support our unit holders (and their significant others) in storing most anything (talk to us for the no-nos). If you need storage for some old, cherished childhood items, or want to combine “his and hers” into a bigger, better unit under the eyes and guidance of a friendly staff, call STORBOX today at (626) 407-3439. Then, when he comes strolling into your storage unit, you can make the right impression!
