I've probably told this story before, but I had a similar tale to the laptop saga when I was trying to sell some brand-new china on Craigslist.  I got an e-mail purportedly from some young fellow who was moving out of province, had therefore closed all of his bank accounts, but he really wanted to buy my "items".  Because, naturally, if you're a young guy moving across the country, the thing you need the most is fragile china.

Decided for that amount of money, I'd rather have a spare computer on hand (two story house).  Then VorGuy's Windows 7 laptop died in November 2013 (about two months after the $75 "offer") and he used it while I first tried to get his to work, get a backup made (didn't work very well either), and then transferred what I could recover to a new laptop with Windows 8 on it. Just tried to use that hard drive for a back up of my laptop - it is one very dead hard drive...not recognized by either of my laptops... But I don't feel like buying a NEW hard drive & trying to set it up at the moment - I've had one minor crisis after another lately, including two leaks under the kitchen sink. The plumber came back for a second visit in 13 days this morning. I'm hoping that there will be an interlude in this drama over Easter. I could use some chocolate and a weekend where nothing breaks down. Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I explain? #### snowfire • Member • Posts: 2281 ##### Re: What weird/outrageous requests have you seen on Freecycle/Craigslist? « Reply #1262 on: April 17, 2014, 11:04:59 PM » I'll virtually send you the LARGE broken chocolate bunnies I found in the clearance section at Fred Meyer's last weekend. Ears were broken off. Bunny foo foos, anyone? #### VorFemme • Member • Posts: 14018 • It's too darned hot!

Can't figure out why no one has stepped up to help this guy out. After all, he's "awesome"! And by the way, Montecito is a section of Santa Barbara that is generally quite wealthy. A lot of celebs have second or third homes there. Quote$1 Seeking a free room (Montecito / SB)

I'm awesome.
That's it.
Truly, though.

I require a parking spot, wifi. Privacy and an awesome attitude.
I prefer my own bathroom.
I have an awesome attitude.
Well, maybe if by awesome he means "will perform all outdoor maintenance, yard work, and clean your house as well as Merry Maids would" ...
