posted here a wanting a quick reply (so as not to waste other people's time).

... freecycle ettiquette before signing up. He did so this afternoon.

Offering a fridge/freezer:

Person 1 wanted photos - DH took and sent
Person 2 said yes please as their reply
Person 1 came back and said yes please.

Who should get it?

DH says Person 2 as they gave a solid Yes first. I don't know but he wants to be fair.

Person 2, because they said yes first.

I'd go with person 1 as you were already "in conversation" with them.

Whoever he wants!

I would say person 1.

Put yourself in their shoes? Would you be most hacked off if you were person 1 and didn't get it, of person 2 and didn't get it?

But I would give it to the person who could collect soonest, smile

Person 1

Person 2, for not being a choosy motherfucker.

Whichever one you decide on will probably fail to collect, then you'll end up giving it to the other one anyway smile

Thank you all for your answers. He decided on person 2, their reply was 'nicer' and they gave a time frame when they would be able to collect (tomorrow and we're in tiling the kitchen).

PatPig your reaoning may also have played a part

Give the fridge to 1 and the freezer to the other...

I'd have done exactly the same as him.
