Rant of the Day

I listed a bunch of stuff on Freecycle. Living in a condo, I can't really leave things out for people because: 1) the complex office doesn't even take packages for residents never mind non-residents, 2) the buildings are locked so it's not like somebody could get in to get something from my doorstep, 3) there isn't anywhere at the entryway to my building to leave things, and 4) in my experience, only 1 out of 5 people can follow directions well enough to find my building in the first place (since the only entrance non-residents can use is not located on the street the address is on.)

So I specifically said "Please be able to pick up evening or weekends."

I have had several responses. One of whom can only pick things up between 8 and 9 a.m. on weekdays and another of whom asked if she could come by at lunchtime tomorrow.

Can't anybody bloody read any more?

(Actually, I know the answer to that, since every single day I am held up by at least 4 or 5 people trying to exit metro turnstiles which are clearly labeled "Smartrip cards only" with paper fare cards.)

I am not even going to get onto the two people who said they would come by this evening and who have not responded when I emailed them telling them to call me after 6 p.m.
