Yes but come on does he really deserve it??

only if hes polite

I think you're right. Quite a few people sit back, wait for replies, then pick the one they feel is most deserving or the one they want to give it to.

On the subject of Freecycle I've just got rid of my big, old, clumpy kitchen chairs with chipped paint but loads of potential and replaced them with some really nice bistro style chairs from one of my favourite cafes in Brighton.
All on Freecycle.

oh yes I should

I should have sent one back saying no in fact it isn't a mattress either but a tupperware box. A single one

Maybe he's just checking that it's not a king size? hmm

I have just got rid of my kingsize bed and mattress - they are collecting tomorrow morning - I normally let things go to the first person who can collect - I am so impatient

CountessDracula Fri 21-Sep-07 20:45:16
