Really? For free?

This is a bit weird isn't it?

So weird.
I agree with the theory that it's a sub/dom thing.

Generally, be very careful telling people you don't know when you are in / out. I remember people being burgled after giving too much info to would be buyers.
Here is an article on the issue

Scam. Expect a contribution to get your clothes back, or this is simply a recce to get to know when people are in or out of their home on the excuse of picking up/dropping off clothes.

Is it a tax dodge?
When you get your ironing back, hopefully perfectly ironed and nothing amiss! You’d feel you’d have to give him twenty pounds say and he’d consider that a gift rather than earnings so he’d not pay tax? Then he only ‘works’ in future for paying customers?

Message him to enquiry about your clothes being ironed, then send another from a different account saying your husband needs all his y-fronts ironed. See if they get the same enthusiastic response grin

Do you have a bag of clothes for the charity shop that you could get him to do as a test? Just to see what happened? If he is stealing them to send abroad then it’s not the end of the world, likewise if they come back stained.

I've just read this out to my husband- sounds well suss!!

AlonsoTigerHeart Thu 31-May-18 07:12:50

Yes, they will come back "well starched"

Slitherout Thu 31-May-18 07:11:56

Message him and ask if he'd do a job lot as a one off, as you and your colleagues in the fraud squad are very interested and need your suits doing.

MartagonLilies Thu 31-May-18 07:10:48

This is in my area, and so I had a search for it. He has another post that says £15 per bagconfused

People are trying to figure out what kind of weird scam it is, on the comments.

Must be legit then. grin

My guess is that he is a submissive, and will be doing your ironing naked while his wife scolds him in the background.

LEMtheoriginal Thu 31-May-18 06:52:13

Should I message and say I need my nurses uniform ironed?

It could be genuine I guess. Weird people about an all. I wouldn’t risk it though. Or it could be like someone else says, a sub/Dom situation. Or a dirty perv. I’d message and ask questions. Obviously report back to us.

AjasLipstick Thu 31-May-18 02:03:38

He's probably a submissive and this is something his "master" has told him to do to humiliate him.

Subs and doms do weird shit....public humiliation is big. His dom has probably told him to place the ad and he'll do strangers' ironing whilst his dom tells him what a bad boy he is.


salsmum Thu 31-May-18 01:34:55

He's a Carer for his wife and he has time to stand all day ironing for free??? Wow I don't know many carers who would have the time or the energy to iron all day while caring for someone let alone doing the world and it's uncles ironing for FREE....confusedhmm

PurpleTango Thu 31-May-18 00:38:55

Can you message him and enquire about his ironing service? You have to and report back. I need to know if I should move (tomorrow) into his free ironing area.

crunchymint Thu 31-May-18 00:23:50

I suspect this is a masturbator

SimonBridges Thu 31-May-18 00:13:37

Either it’s a scam or you clothes come back covered in jizz.

DickensianHysteric Thu 31-May-18 00:12:29

Yeah, all genuine offers include the words THIS IS REAL... grin

Emma198 Thu 31-May-18 00:10:24

but he only irons knickers 😁

BettyPitts Thu 31-May-18 00:08:56

No thank you.

UserV Thu 31-May-18 00:07:48

Dodgy as fuck.

gaggiagirl Thu 31-May-18 00:05:53

Unless he does your first bin bag for free and charges for subsequent ones? Although he doesn't say so.
Or is he trying them on?
