The urge to edit curbside “Free” signs

Most of us don't walk around with magic markers in our pocket.

But sometimes that's too bad. Because every now and then you encounter a "Free" sign next to some curbside items that, in all honesty, can only be categorized as trash.

So there's a temptation to add "OBO" to the sign. The implication, of course, being that the people who put that stuff out really ought to pay someone to haul it away.
