The wisdom of laypeople

Overheard in my kitchen between my two roommates:

"So, what do we do with all her [the other roommate who flaked out and moved to Florida with no notice] stuff?"

"I know I'm not paying to ship all of her shit to Florida."

"Yeah, but do we just leave it up there, or give it to the landlord, or what?"

"Hey, it's ours now. It's been thirty days, and what, possession is like nine-tenths of the law, right?"

"I guess."

"No, that's really true. She can have one-tenth of her stuff back, which means like tampons and DVDs and shit."

"Except 'Hackers'. I want her 'Hackers'."

"Okay, except her 'Hackers'."
