In this week's edition of bad neighbours, an unassuming act of opportunism unfolded when a resourceful woman spotted a treasure trove in her neighbour's discarded furniture.

It is common in most parts of the world to leave furniture out with a free label as a means to easily get rid of it. 

One woman, @avocandreatoast, hacked the system when she gave the discarded furniture a new home. Little did her neighbours know that she planned to profit from their act of kindness.

While opinions on the act varied, this sparks a conversation about resourcefulness and entrepreneurship amidst community living.

"I stopped selling stuff on [Facebook] marketplace because it’s such a hassle. 800 ‘is this available?’ messages and then 800 people ghosting. I have a life," one person wrote.

A second added: "I've had no luck with Facebook marketplace. every person so far that's messed about an item they don't show up nor answer back."
