I don't mean to get on a rant here, but if you use freecycle don't expect new things. Period. And take what you agree to take. I still love freecycle, but will be more careful of what and whom I deal with.

...at times. What? Rob hates freecycle? That wonderful program that allows you to get rid of things you no longer want or need or find great items? No. Rob still loves the free cycle. Just some of the folks who use it make me so angry. I recently put a love seat up on free cycle. I got a response. I even put a link to a pic of the love seat. The guy who responded, I shall call him "Jerk" to protect his anonymity, agreed I would leave it on the front yard and I would cover the cushions with garbage bags. Well I went to work came home, he had written a note that it smelled. Well now really, he wanted a new love seat??? B.S., It may have smelled of pets or even cigarette smoke (remember I quit some time ago) but you take off the cushion covers and wash them.. I am not going to do it for you, Jerk. So off it goes into the truck to the thrift store! They loved it and I asked them to smell it. It was fine according to the attendant at the thrift store. So I am glad I found a way to recycle it. But it galls me that people will agree to take something on the freecycle and then get all uppity. Hey, Shithead- it's a free love seat. Apparently they didn't have anyone tell them not to look a gift horse in the mouth.
