lolgasm!!!

Not even a "i would be very grateful"! No wonder you didnt let them have them! I think u should give them the wrong address just to waste their time!

exactly the same on my freecycle too, it really rowls me up :-(

yeh i know in the past i have normally given the stuff to homes for adults and workplaces for adults with learning disabilities and they did appreciate it!

Had a similar experience with a 28" JVC Television which resulted in the set going to the tip rather than give it to the rabble who responded to my give away on freecycle.
I have never offered anything again, some of the people resell on the items they acquire.

never thought of that, maybe thats why i have had so many replies and they all want not one of the tv,s but the lot that was offered!
#13
maybe i should just offer them on here could be easier :)
#14
Hi Wulshaz
is there a profile space on that site where you can put some sort of comment in
to let people know what you expect of them when they respond to your offers?
#15
i am not sure i will go have a look as i cannot believe how ppl are expecting to come pick up the lot and not even asking if they are still available and why would one person want the 3 tv,s for their house surely they dont need 3 and to me i would think thats just greed let someone else have the other 2.
#16
Maybe try putting them on your local Gumtree. I've had much more positive experiences on there than anything collected by the local Freecycle vultures!
#17
funny enough i am looking through gumtree just now as i didnt know they advertised jobs also thanks
#18
i will be in at around 6 tonight you can drop them off then:whistling:
#19
take them to your local hospital for the childrens ward they would be very grateful they need it for the kids who are in for a long time and its a good deed x

i never thought of that thats an even better idea i cannot believe there are so many ppl like that! i am going to give the one to the girl for her son who is at nursery :) i just dont know what to believe nowadays :roll:

Not everyone on FREECYCLE is rude. I've offered loads of stuff and,yes, some people don't have manners but they are the ones who I don't offer items to. I have had a lot of nice people collect things from me. They are certainly not all vultures!

swings and roundabouts, but if its going to the tip who cares even if they sell on if you cannot be bothered yourself!, saves a trip to the dump! just ignore the really rude - i do!

well i met the girl and her little boy at tesco car park and her hubby was there also and what a nice family the little boy was so excited about getting a tv/dvd for his room which made it all worthwhile just watching his face!

Nice idea but not necessarily workable - hospitals can't take toys because of hygiene issues, and electrical items have to be checked in-house before use.

As far as Freecycle goes, I don't know if I'm just lucky in where I live, but I haven't had any rude responses. Sometimes I've been torn, trying to decide which response to offer stuff to - I feel bad turning anybody down!

I even delivered once, when the person's car broke down - yes, I am that good!!!:-D

WHAT?!?!

This is ridiculous!!

You expect people to be 'thankful' and 'appreciative' of 'your' junk??

I mean seriously, look at it from the opposite perspective. Youre gonna get rid of it anyway and someone is doing 'you' a favour by taking it away for you/from you.

If youre gonna throw a hissy fit because no one said thank you, go recycle the thing yourself and dont tell anyone youre getting rid of it!!

See how that works out for ya!!

The cheek of some people i swear (OP and others!!)! Really pi**es me off!

hey get back in your pram, in no matter what circumstance i was always brought up to have manners obviously you were not, when i apply or ask for something knowing that other ppl are interested i dont just wade right and say thing s like "right whats the address and a will be there after 6"
1 they dont know if the item is still available
2 maybe i dont like to give out my address to strangers for obvious reasons
3 i always arrange to meet somewhere public as it is safer
and also i never asked anyone to be thankful or appreciative as it was not junk and i only wanted someone to have some use for it as one of the tv,s was still under warranty so i did not want that going to the tip and looking from the other prospective when something was offered that i was interested in i kindly asked if i could be considered for it as i assume there will be a few emails interested but i would make use of the item in question if it was still available, now even though i should not have to explain myself, i thought i would incase there is any other ppl like yourself.

I disagree with you. I believe that as the people are getting something for nothing due to my kindness I would like the recipient to be polite, and hopefully grateful.
If I have gone to the trouble of making a freecycle account, putting up a freecycle listing and possibly photos (which takes time and effort) I would like the recipient to respect that.
I could more easily put the items in the bin but instead would like it if someone got use out of them, a simple 'thank you' and some manners is not a big ask in return for the freebie.

And, a working TV/DVD machine is not 'crap'. It is a very generous offer which I suspect they could have got some money for but decided to help someone in the local community. I think you are rude and ungrateful.

you do all that and put the effort because you feel that youre doing good in some way. fact is, its a load of cack which you want rid of and in one way or another it has to go so you feel good about yourself by someone else getting use out of it.

you cant expect people to make you feel good though. as you said you'd rather someone else get use out of them so let them take it away from you. you should be thankful they are taking it away and making use of it rather than you damaging the environment by chucking it. because that is what you would have done, if no option was available, chuck it. whatever could be recycled from it would be recycled the rest damage to the earth.

true gratitude and generosity is when you do something for someone without expecting anything in return

i wonder who it is that really feels insecure and who feels that they have to direct their frustation and anger at honest decent ppl who were born and brought up with manners :) tut tut tut you seem to me to be having a right childish rant :p so therefore maybe you should just put your dummy back in and go settle down in your pram for the night :p
