I first got into free-cycling when I was looking for material for costumes for the Drama Club for school. I got some really nice boxes of donations for school that way. The idea is that you can post things you no longer want and give them to someone else. "Great idea!" I first thought. "I'll just take everything in George's office and put it in garbage bags and the first sucker who comes for it gets it. No returns."
Well, it was a great idea but there was a set of rules included in Free-Cycling. You are not supposed to offer Crap as a wonderful item. True crap is supposed to be put in the trash. Doggone. There went my dreams of cleaned-out closets, the office and garage. And under the bed, whatever lurked there would have to stay there.
|I could clean out all my closets and shelves!|
|Crap Not Wanted|
|Only Half Used!|
|Insert Breast For Best Results!|
Breast pumps are also a big (no pun intended) item and I am not sure I want something that was attached to someone else's boob.
|Wanted: One Winning Lottery Ticket!|
You can also request certain items. Some of them are definitely the pie-in-the-sky requests such as a new computer, guitar, workout equipment, and free ticket to concerts. Hah.
|Urgent! Perfume Needed ASAP! Claustrophobic...|
Anyway the one I saw was for perfume. This lady was looking for some perfume, some very specific perfume. It seems she had run out of it and it is the only perfume she uses. She does not have enough money to buy new perfume and just can't go out of the house without it.
My advice to her: Stay in the house.
