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 ????

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 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
