A local charity is coming by on Tuesday to pick up a truckload of items we don’t want or need. They won’t take anything that’s not in saleable condition, so I needed to do something with the thirty-two (yes, 32) pieces of patio furniture that were too old, rusty, and/or dirty to sell, but were perfect for someone who wanted to put in a little elbow grease to restore them.
So, I placed an ad on Craigslist in their “Free” section offering a curb alert. They could please come and take what they wanted from the side deck, but please respect our property and don’t take anything not in the place specified and don’t drive on the grass.
Today I asked my sister-in-law to do a drive-by to see what, if anything was left. Some of the items were gone, but someone who apparently is not the Next Coming of Ghandi decided to dump a sodden old couch in the yard.
So, thanks, Jerk, for teaching me a lesson.
Anyone want a sodden green couch? It’s free. Just send me a copy of your drivers license and I’ll send you the address.
Better yet, let us deliver it.
