I just had a fun one - I had some clothes I wanted to get rid of so I posted them on Freecycle. Someone expressed interest in them. I said ok, they reply telling me they are out of town right now and wont be back for 2 weeks. I said ok, and stuck them in a closet for the time. They send an email the day they are back asking for directions and stated I could leave them outside. I did. 3 days pass and they are still on my porch. I email and ask, are you picking these up? They reply, I've been sick...Nice of you to let me know...One of those nights there was a decent snowfall and now everything is covered in snow. I'm sorry you got sick, but would have killed you to send me a message?
I am also going to applaud our FC mods. There aren't many sob stories, there's a few, "hey I just moved here and need this" type posts but they aren't trying to make you feel bad. Kijiji has become flooded with sob stories as of late. I can't look through baby ads without finding a, "I'm due in a few months and I need EVERYTHING because I'm on welfare!"
