Kids are getting bunk beds.

DS1s old bed was off ebay, new but been at someones house, was cheap ikea bed.

DS2s bed is a gorgeous single, big blue headboard and footboard with rockets on, cost a bit.

So I decided to put cheap bed on freecycle but try to rehome the blue bed in the family.

I get a lovely reply on freecycle, polite, sounds genuine collecting tonight ...

SIL texts me 'yh prob, measure it for us, dnno if itll fit'


Now I want to put it on freecyce too.

You don't have to give it to her.

'yeah probably'

bit confused. you mean SIL just assumed she'd get it and wants you to measure up for her? i.e. being cheeky?

I would be annoyed - she doesnt sound very grateful

I asked if she wanted DSs bed, told her its only few months old etc ...

No 'please' or 'thankyou' for it in reply and asks me to measure it without a 'please' either

JUST what I was trying to avoid on freecycle.

Hmmm, maybe I am asking too much expecting manners these days??

Not at all!

Don't give it to her.

Cheeky mare.

well if she 'def hav - bring round' tell her you are selling it for £50 and see if she is still interested!
OMG - I would be annoyed, too!

I'd stick it on ebay at least you'd get some ££££££££££££££ for the hassle!

Can you give nice person the nice bed, and SIL the cheap one??

It is a text though, and it is difficult to get across the correct emotion sometimes

No stretch, the freecycle ones just an adult single bed, this is a kids one.

DR - is it difficult to text please and thank you too?
