Freebasing Steve S 60

 
Posted

Looking to get rid of some furniture so visited the Freegle web page for my area.  Not a lot being offered, but plenty of WANTS.  The stuff being offered gives the impression they can't be bothered to take their rubbish down to the tip.  On the other hand, the "wants" are pretty optimistic.  One poster has three separate wants.  The first for any Nintendo DS console and games, the second for a working PS3 console and games and the third for any PS4 games or accessories.  This beggar obviously isn't choosy, and seems to have covered all bases.  Call me cynical, but I would imagine any donations would be traded in against the latest games.  Tempted to reply, saying I've got a hoop and stick they can have, encouraging them to get off their fat arse and get some fresh air.

Never heard of this site till your post just been on my local freegle and cannot believe what some people have offered , a box of wash powder a bag of pegs and some part cans of emulsion ffs.

That is recycling to the extreme !

....and amongst the wants there's probably someone wanting a washing machine.  Somebody is looking for a tumble dryer on our local site, as her daughter has moved into a flat that doesn't have one.  Get her a mangle.

Me neither .

The title of this thread is misleading !

I'm most disappointed that I've clicked and discovered there wasn't really an unwanted pet eagle which you were kindly giving away free to a good home,Steve.

I'd not heard of it until the wife got rid of some filing cabinets from work.  Some guy picked them up with the intention of "upcycling" them, another term for painting them a garish colour and then selling them on for silly money.

This site should be great for a daily giggle , some of the things offered are mind boggling who would in their right minds would open the door to someone who turned up for a free bottle of '' Baby Bio'' plant food !

My thoughts  exactly lol

I would imagine though the person offering the Baby Bio and the person turning up at the door for it could be a match made in heaven .

Unless the donor is allergic to houseplants !

The person who is offering the Baby Bio is the same person who is offering the old box of soap powder tablets which in the description says - very old but I suspect will still work !

F***ing hilarious !

Believe it or not, further on down the page someone is offering a dressmakers dummy.  I suppose it's a start.  Just need advertise for a head, two arms and two legs.

It's probably this weirdo then in disguise..

Handing down the sentence, the judge told Winters the course represented his "last chance" and added that the defendant should aim to establish an appropriate adult relationship with a partner rather than "walking around the centre of town in the dead of night being excited by mannequins".

Do you live near Peckham ? if so maybe Del Boy might have a dodgy inflatable to spare for the person in question.

Somebody from Cumbria Master Composters (???) requires empty Nutella jars to use as incubators for worm eggs.

I'm going to have to add this website to my favourites.

They could also advertise for a puncture repair kit.

My daughter must have worms because she gets through jars of the stuff.  This is one of her Christmas presents....

Didn't use Freegle in the end, my daughter advertised the free stuff on Facebook instead.  Yesterday we gave away a Welsh dresser, four tables, twenty two chairs, eight stools and a fridge.  Somebody collected another six stools today, and the guy who collected the fridge is coming around tomorrow for a microwave oven.  The people who took the table and chairs are coming back for some bigger tables and a shelf unit.  They even gave me a business card in case we wanted to hire out their premises that we've just furnished for them.

Latest WANT on our local Freegle.....

"Anyone getting rid of a working carpet cleaner Anyone getting rid of some curtains needed to keep heat in a room"

I've offered them a scrubbing brush and bucket.  They can keep warm while manually cleaning the carpet.

I can only assume that they're putting the band back together, judging by the numerous WANTS for electric guitars and amplifiers that have recently appeared on our local Freegle.
