I have recently downsized to a small flat and need to vent about people's behaviour when I have offered stuff on Freecycle, Gumtree or local community groups - all for free. I have yet again had the experience of putting an item (a toddler mattress in almost new condition) on one of these sites and have had dozens of people asking for it but three no-shows already and (this took the biscuit) "Yes I will have if - when can you deliver it?" !!
Charity shops won't take any sort of bedding so it'll be down to the tip with it.
When they do turn up they barely thank you. Friends say it's because they are free and if I charged people would behave better- are they right?
