ramblings from the noisedoctor

how about you just pick one?

Filed under: freecycle, unclear on the concept — noisedoctor @ 7:34 am

When people are reasonable, posting wanted messages on freecycle groups is a good thing. There have been times when people have posted that they want something and I remember that I have that item and won’t really ever use it again.

The posting below appeared on our local freecycle group over the weekend and does not fall into what I consider the “reasonable” category.

Wanted: Lawnmower, Tiller, Edger, Mulch, & Patio Furniture
Hello and Happy Spring,
I am in need of a lawnmower, edger /
trimmer,tiller, and mulch for my yard. I am a novice landscaper
taking over a mature garden. In addition to the lawn equipment I
also am in need of wicker patio furniture as well. I can pick up

Why on earth would you take on a “mature garden” without the equipment needed to take care of it? But, at least this person didn’t ask people to come over and mow/trim/mulch/rototill, huh?
