this is a new one

Offer: English Bulldog. Roughly 30 pounds maybe 18inches tall at her head, brindle and whitein color,
great with kids, has all shots but has not been spade. Hername is Lilly and she
was given to us at christmas, but we are notallowed to have pets at our
apartment. if you have any questionsplease e-mail me.. Thanks


Today, someone posted on here for a free English Bulldog named Lilly. She was
our dog, and we had my husbands brother doggy-sit for her. She is our 3 year old
daughter's dog. He posted her on freecycle without our knowledge or concent. We
have pictures of her with our daughter, as well as vet papers for her. The ad
was wrong, she HAS been spayed. If you got her, we would please love her
returned. Our little girl is heartbroken. This was not their dog to get rid of.
Willing to re-inburse the money paid for her. Please have a heart and return our
baby girl to our daughter. She has been crying all day since I got on here and
saw the ad. It saddens me that my husbands brother would od this to his own
neice. I am praying that whoever has her has a heart and will return her. I can
send pictures of her as proof of ownership. Please help. Thank you in advance.


Thank you to all who offered support. We did get Lilly back. She is happy
to be home, and our daughter is so grateful to have her back. She was so well
taken care of and loved, and we are so grateful for that, and even more grateful
to have her back. Thanks again!

prrofread plaese ;)

So tons of freecycle posts contain spelling errors. Sometimes they can be overlooked. But in this example from Jodi bad spelling kinda changes the meaning of the post!

Offer: Kiddieland rocking hore (londonderry)It has wheels so it can be rode on
and it can also rock. When you puch his earit sings and the mouth
moves. Very cute. I recieved this from anotherfreecycle and
unfortunatly, we don't have the room. My sons are 3 and can usethis with
out a problem. Let me know when you would like to pick it up.


Just a slight difference between a HORSE and a HORE (and yes, I know that's not how you spell that either, but come on you know it's funny!)

here kitty kitty kitty

Attention animal lovers: I have a cat that seems like she is scared of
everything. She is anti-social, but I think she has been abused by either other
animals or people or both. She has never bitten, but she growls as I pet her. I
know she fixed and I need to find a home for her fast. She has been hiding in my
basement. She would do great in a 1 or 2 person home anymore than that is would
probably be torture for her. I would like to keep her but my husband says no.
Please help this animal in need.


I hate cats and this certainly doesn't make me want one! I guess it's not really funny, just makes me wonder who is going to read all that and still want this cat?!?!?

The types of freecyclers

  1. You have the people who are just looking to see what's there and what people need. The genuine people, just looking to keep stuff out of the trash and find something they can use.
  2. The people who expect the universe to be handed over to them because they deserve it. Ya know, their uncles bestfriends sisters aunt's dog got ran over by a car, so they need a new laptop. I think I have demonstrated a few of those around here.
  3. The people who have garbage and they are too cheap to throw it away themselves, so hey why don't you come throw it away for me? Example:
    Free water softener! It works great! Only issue is that two weeks ago it leaked
    some water on the floor, but that could probably be fixed. Yours for the taking.
    Gee, the only issue with it is that IT DOESN'T WORK. Even though you claim "works great" uh.....NO it doesn't, a leaking water softener is a broken one m'kay?

is this weird....or is it just me?

I HAVE SOME BARN CATS THAT ARE VERY COLD OUTSIDE. I THOUGHT IF SOMEONE HAD A
COOLER ( MAYBE LIKE THE ONES THAT OMAHA STEAKS COME IN) THAT MIGHT BE INSULATED
TO HELP KEEP MY CATS WARM THEY WOULD APPRECIATE IT.



I find this very odd. Couldn't you just build a house for the cats? **scratching head**
Maybe it's just me, but a cooler full of kittys is weird!

freecycle weddings are always the best!

I have a stack (5+) of 2007/2008 bridal magazines.. good condition, non smoking
home.. great for ideas! Includes issues from InStyle Weddings, Modern Bride
& Martha Stewart Weddings. Thanks for looking!


The non-smoking home part cracks me up. It's a magazine---not the actual wedding dress!

These are the ones that REALLY tick me off

Our bedroom caught fire due to an electrical heater,and therefor welost
everything in our bedroom,and we need a king size bed withframe,and dresser,and
carpet and curtains and night stands and thingsof that nature.


If you have had a fire, you are happy to get ANYTHING you can, and you don't go begging for a KING SIZED BED. I "need" a king sized bed. No, you do not "need" it, sorry about your luck. I don't even have a king sized bed, what the hell makes you think you should get one for FREE????? That just really irks me!

This one makes me laugh

We need fence posts- as few or many as possible for chicken arena. Please email
if you can help.


I laugh not really because of anything with the request, I laugh at the words "chicken arena". Little chickens in gladiator costumes fighting to the death.

sometimes they make my head hurt

Looking for Truses 22' with a 412 pitch, Ketchen cabnets, windows 3'x3' or
3'x4' used lumber like 2'x4' 2'x8' and pliewood or OSB tung and grove also
carpet. getting ready to add on to my house would graetly be more then happy to
take this stuff off your hands Thanks

Beggars can't be choosers....

I am in need of a good working and looking laptop. would like something that
could be upgraded. Windows or mac excpeted. Doesn't need to look perfect but
must work well will be for school. thanks! If you have anything please email me
at XXX@XXX.com


So very glad that on the FREE laptop you want to get that you will take Windows OR Mac! Cause requesting Windows Vista only would be unreasonable.

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

huh?

People can be so vague. Is someone really going to go pick this up, not knowing what size? I am sure the answer is yes, but still is it really that hard to at least put a SIZE??????


Up for grabs is 3 trash bags full of toys. Plus a mixture of misc. clothes and
shoes for girls. Must take all. Goal to be gone by 12:30 today. pick up only.
Email for directions. Thanks

kijiji

I have never looked on kijiji before, but thanks to Dea who has a ton for me.

One of my favorites
I HAVE A 7 MOUTH OLD PITBULL AND I WONT TO KNOW WAT TO FEED HER TO GET BIG?IF U
CAN TELL ME PLEASE EMAIL ME ASAP THANKS

Where to start??? I mean I could pick on the spelling errors, but that just seems kinda mean. Oh hell, I am mean.... maybe she doesn't know what to feed her dog cause she has been looking for "PITBULL FUD" at the store instead of Alpo!

But wait, it gets better, another one from kijiji:

I AM OFFERING A LOVING HOME FOR ANY BIRD BIG OR SMALL A STAY AT HOME GRANDMA AND
A LOVING PERSON,I HAVE PARROTS AND COCKATIELS.ALSO I WILL TAKE SPECIAL NEEDS
BIRDS.

LMAO! Special needs birds?? Wonder if she will take a special needs pitbull owner too???

Weddings.......freecycle style

This is not the first time I have seen this kind of request.
wanted: Wedding leftovers Wedding left overs....... ...anything and
everythingkids moving date up......and I am not prepared.thanks in advancecolors
are green and bluealso needing gowns....



I always find this one strange. I was no bridezilla, but I would have drawn the line at hand-me-down wedding favors. I mean, what do they do, cross off John and Sally March 2, 1998 on some napkins with a Sharpie and re-write Mark and Elizabeth, September 27, 2008 on them ????
Odd.

First post!

Hello and welcome to my first blog on FreebieFreaks.

I have decided to start blogging about the funny and strange things I have run across on my local Freecycle board. Don't get me wrong I love Freecycle, I love that old things find new homes and new uses. Sometimes I find myself giggling at the requests and responses on there, and I hope maybe you will too.

For example, there seem to be some freecyclers who forget that it is FREE, like this one:

"Wanted: Sprint Cell Phone in good condition, preferably something like a Palm
or thereabouts (some type of smart phone preferred - Blackberry type, etc.). My
husband broke his this past weekend and I am looking for a replacement. "



Uh yeah, I would love a free Blackberry too, but you don't see me whining to internet strangers to give me one!

Or there is this person who is giving away....uh....I dunno......what ARE they giving away?

"Offer ~ Box of goodies...~Not even sure whats in there....med size box and must
take it all please...."



Go pick it up, who knows, there could be a pile of cash in there!

So, I plan on adding some more here when I get the chance....and if you have one you can email it to me Freebiefreaks@ymail.com
