Is it possible that one person was moving the box ahead of you while another used a phone to record your reactions? I'm just throwing an idea out here.


why would someone do that? to what end? how did they know what route I would take and where I lived?

Encountering two(?) boxes approximately 1 year apart isn't all that notable a coincidence.


It's not for me. But then, I'm a removal man.

I'd point out that RadioDJ described the first box, but not the later / second one.

I'd like to know how similar, if not identical, the two boxes were.


Ahhh, good point! The second box could have been entirely unrelated to the scrapy, self-propelling first box of the previous year. The first box was probably a haunted box from a haunted house removal, while the second was simply a trans-dimensional, chameleonic life-form disguised as a cardboard box in order to find a way into RadioDJ's spare room from where it will begin its dastardly plans of world domination.


its hard to tell if its the same box. I haven't even opened the door since I put it away. out of sight out of mind!!

I did come home to a smashed lightbulb in the kitchen yesterday but that was more to do with my bad wiring!

Phew! RadioDJ's still with us. Unless he's been cloned by the cardboard box people! Shocked

I think, RadioDJ, it's time to open that door, investigate that probably harmless, but possibly transdimensional alien haunted box, for any signs as to what it had previously used for. Or even if it had been used. Are there any stains? And impressions in the bottom or top to indicate what had been in it? Is it held together with tape? If so, what type? Is there a note inside it saying where it's from, to whom it belongs, and why they left it at your door? Any one of these things could give us a clue as to why your spare room is being occupied by a box rent free.

It would be a great idea for a horror short film.

I have a penchant for jumping on cardboard boxes and squashing them. It is fun so I recommend this course of action.

And that's how you lost your job in the shoe shop.

You need to buy a Ford Gran Torino immediately and go all Starsky & Hutch on its ass (erm, dirtbox?)
