51 years old, a green one and a pink one. Yes, i did keep an eye (or two) on the buyers, but destroying my bathroom was not an issue, since i was replacing all the wall & floor tile. Two guys rolled it out on a dolley.

I'm not criticizing how you got it out, but there are many good ways to do things. I'm looking on Craigslist right now for 2 more tubs, for 2 more bathroom remodels. Wouldn't it be hilarious if my wife insists on green & pink this time?

Habitat for Humanity's Restore will send people to remove stuff like this too, but I forgot until the demo was finished.

And don't forget the curb fairy. She will take anything you lay out there. I set a green toilet on the curb, and the tank lid disappeared, then a couple of hours, the toilet was gone. I guess it was the same fairy, but I try not to worry too much.

My brother says to never throw away wax rings from the toilet. Swears that chewing them restores their original properties. But be careful not to swallow, that's a couple of bucks right there!
