Only one box. Went to make it tonight and realized it was with cheese, not
plain.
a friend of mine does that all the time. Her and another friend have major allergies at their house with food. So they buy different things, whether food or soaps etc and if it dosent work they freecycle. I can always tell when either of them are "experimenting" with different types of foods or cleaners by their free to take on our yahoo local moms group or freecycle.

We offered our old computer monitor on freecycle once. The guy who was supposed to come pick it up emailed us to make sure it was flat screen and at least so many inches, and we said no. We never said it was flat screen. We specified what it was, and he got mad at us that it wasn't a big flat screen monitor!

It seems like it wouldnt be worth the gas money to pick up one box of Zatarans.

as if you're a pc boutique or something. Some one posted about needing a rocking chair. I offered ours up since I was going to post it anyhow sooner than later. She wrote back was it this specific type etc. I said no and she said well maybe she could drop by this week to look at it to see if its what she wants and consider it. HUH?? We ROFL over that one.

I will soon be listing old aluminum patio furniture . . . needs paint, slightly mildewed vinyl strapping, faded pillows with faded homemade outdoor canvas slipcovers, and a glass table. Some fittings slightly rusty, but the winner takes all--even if they just want to take it apart and sell it at the salvage yard.

It's not *that* crappy, it's just well-used. My parents bought it when I was a schoolgirl and it's been on my (uncovered) deck for the last four years. It's solid, just a bit ugly.

This is a college town, it'll go fast.

That said, I fully expect someone to list "crappy a$$ lawn furniture" in here in a week or two. :

I had a lady pick up a bedframe from Craigslist. I took a picture AND e-mailed her the measurements. She was sure it would fit in her car. She couldn't get it in her car no matter how hard she tried. I was supposed to pick my DD up from gymnastics and she was dorking around with the damn bed frame for.ev.er.

Finally, my neighbor took pity on her and came over to help. He put a box underneath the frame, then helped her tie it to the roof of her car.

I was so late!! I will never do that again for $60. She was a complete nut.

Someone offered a thong. The poster claimed that it was never worn, and the proof that was offered was that it was still on a hanger.

I know that some underwear are sold on hangers, but not many. I still don't see how the thongs still being on their original hanger is any proof that they were never worn. Besides, I would rather go without than to get underwear from freecycle.

i hate how when you buy a corset or something like that you always get a free matching thong. im so not into butt-floss but its so hard to get rid of them because no one believes i wasnt wearing them.

and on a matching note i had a thong wearing friend of mine gain alot of weight and give me her old clothes. i thought that was awesome. but...she also gave me all her old undies too! 0.0

and even stranger, i was having a yardsale and got to talking to a lady who was buying some of my old vinyl pants(yay!) and when she hears about my large bag of 'slightly used' lingerie including thongs she was quite excited and bought them all from me! i was going to just give them to her but she demanded upon paying!

: people are strange

Cheese balls?! OMG, I love cheese balls. My grandma used to have them all the time in her cabinet. It was such a TREAT if they came out of the cupboard!

I wanted to include a link to the 'free room' on the craigslist in my area, but it was flagged. The post was in the free section, and it said 'free room.' Once the link was opened, the pictures were of a bed, a closet, and a mattress... the poster stated his search was actually for a mistress, and pets were allowed.

All that I could say was 'wow,' and that is way too creepy...

On Craigslist there was a listing that said in the title,

"Childcare - CHEEP!!! For Summer!"

Um... I'm sorry, but if you can't spell the word CHEAP, you can't watch my child. Am I alone in this thinking?


Another:

"I Need $1,200 tell June 5, 2009, I do have Collateral.
I do not qualify for a regular loan. "


Sure, buddy! I'd like $1,200 too, but I don't think Craigslist is going to work for you.

THEN goes on to say she's a new driver and is prone to accidents so the insurance should include collision and a mechanic who will do free repairs would come in handy.
My local list is moderated, so that would never get by.

No no, they mean they have watch hens. Or maybe they want to babysit chicks.
