I hate wanted ads on freecycle so much

That it just crossed my mind how much fun you could have with these people who ask for silly things.

You could wait until you get someone asking for something ridiculous. On average you'd have to wait about 20 minutes on most groups.
Then about ten minutes after you post an Offered ad for the very same item. Hahaha of course you'd want to have several spare freecycle IDs for this, perhaps even going as far as having several all built up by offering stuff out and sending nice "i'm sorry you didn't get it this time" cheery hugs sort of emails.

But with the WANTED GREEDY ads you wouldn't ever offer them the item. You'd just let them be so frustrated by perhaps repeatedly missing items, that they'd eventually work it out.

Sounds mean? I think so.

Does anyone have a frosted glass ball knocking around? I have three
sets of three lights, all with frosted glass balls.....except the one
I've just smashed! They are round and fit over a candle bulb, they
sort of 'ping' on when you push the springs in. If you have one you'll
know what I mean! If you do have one which is no longer needed, or you
have one in use at the moment and think you'll be replacing it in the
near future, I would be so grateful if you could contact me or keep my
details on one side for later.

Many thanks

effect" when singing in certain types of buildings. If anyone can help
I can collect for him.


What I said::: I am glad my uncle was never that mean.
Honestly he's either doing it for cash which means he should be buying his own equipment (it's a tax deductable expense... ) or he's doing it for free in which case one of his family could buy it him

my freecycle rules

1) Keep it free, legal & appropriate for all ages.
2) You MUST Include your partial postcode and general location in ALL posts.
3) Items must belong to you or you must have permission to post from the owner

6) No asking for extravagant items (cars, caravans, motorbikes etc)or specifying particular styles/colours etc.
7) No politics, spam, money, rudeness, personal attacks or religion.
8) No live creature messages
9) Re-selling is allowed but you MUST state you are a re-seller in any ‘wanted’ post. When responding to an offer, you must declare you will be re-selling the item aswell.
10) No trading.
11) No requesting items to borrow
12) Send your responses to the offerer only and not the whole group.
13) No offering of yourself/children etc.

One of the neighbouring groups hardly has any wanted posts at all.
It's a pity people don't take much notice when they're in WANTED mode.

Tent pegs

Whay I say: Don't expect other people to pay for your hobbies

Concrete slabs

What they said: looking for about a dozen concrete paving slabs for my 75 year old
neighbour, only about 18" square or he will not be able to move them.

What I say: Tell him to get someone in to lay him a patio.

wanted music stand

What they said: looking for a music stand as my 8yr old has just
started to learn the violin. Anything considered

What I say: Lean the book up against a cupboard or windowsill.
Or go back to the music shop and buy one

Bathroom cabinet wanted

What they said: Hi, I have shelled out to have my bathroom done and now I have come to
the end I really need a cabinet and mirror to finish the job off. I
can collect anywhere . Look forward to hearing from you.

What I say: You can afford to get your bathroom done, so save up and buy them yourself.

Wanted DVD player


What I said:::
Buy one. They're only a few quid.

Wanted travel games


What I say:
Do you not have any paper and pencils?
If you can afford to travel you can afford to buy some games or a pencil and paper and borrow a book from the library on basic games.

Wanted tank and fish

What they said::: does anyone have either of these they no longer kids
driving me insane wanting some fish. would be grateful, thank you

What I said:::

Teach your kids that they can't have everything they want. And if you can't afford a tank or the fish you shouldn't be having pets.

Never happy

what they said::: Does anyone have any spare wieghts they no longer want, my son has
just got a york bench but now needs wieghts for it. thanks

What I said:::
Where did you get just the bench from? Why did you get it if you didn't have any weights? Why not buy him the weights?

Needing a bed whilst I go away

What they said::::
desperately needed i have friends staying over takng care of my house
and dog while i go away and have the spare room set up but no bed,
cannot get a real bed as it will be my babies room very soon, i cannot
afford to go out and purchase one!

if at all possible to deliver to my house, as i have 4
children and do not have transport travel is a nightmare!

thankyou very much for reading & it would be so so so so much
appreciated! ;)

What I say: She's got 4 kids and should presuambly have enough beds for all of them so why can't her friend stay in one of them, or even hers.

And she wants it delivered.

I love freecycle but

It winds me up something rotten seeing all the begging posts on it.

So I've put some together with my thoughts on them!
