I used Freecycle for the first time this week – its a wierd experience.
A few days ago I spotted something I needed (new monitor) on the daily emails. So I emailed the bloke to see if it was still available and after several emails backwards and forwards we managed to arrange a time that was convienient for both of us. So at the agreed time I went down to where he lived, and as promised, this bloke I’d never seen before (or even spoken to for that mater) was staning outside his block of flats with a monitor at his feet. I pullled up next to him, picked up the monitor, said thank you, put it in the car and drove off.

Somehow it just feels wrong, but hey that was how its meant to work – go recycling!
