I adore you, I really do.Â Especially your “best of” posts.
But I have some issues with your people.
Why is it so hard to give away something for free?Â I have a metal bed frame and box springs.Â They’re in my garage.Â Â I have a moral objection to throwing away something that is perfectly good, but it’s been ten days already and it’s still here.
No, I will not help you get the bed frame and box spring to the Shore.Â Which is like 2 hours away.
It’s free.Â It’s in my garage.Â You need to come and get it.Â Â These are the parameters.Â So please don’t email me and tell me to call you in three days.Â I won’t remember.Â If you want the thing, find a way to contact me.Â Don’t ask me to hold it for a week for you while you figure out your transportation difficulties.
Did I mention this is free?Â A free item.Â Free.
If you tell me you’re going to come and get the item, please don’t keep me waiting all that afternoon and then not show up and not answer emails.Â Yes, you’re doing me a favor by helping me free up valuable garage space, but let’s work together here, shall we?
Free.Â It’s still free, people.
And Tuesday I’m taking it to the curb.Â I give up on you.
