wait and see

I'm a big fan of Freecycle but it bugs me to no end when folks agree to pick up an item then never show up. I've posted four items in the last week, secured takers, then have no one show up. I went through this deal twice before getting quite frustrated. Now the stuff that hasn't been picked up is going to the Goodwill, but not before I sent off a couple of (slightly snarky) emails to the folks that agreed to meet and take the stuff. And it's good stuff, too!

Just when I'd been singing the praises of Freecycle over craigslist, touting the fact that with Freecycle, people actually follow through. So much for that!

    I don't understand the question and I won't respond to it.
