I have (not exaggerating) 10 huge garbage bags full of boys clothes, all different kinds (shirts, t-shirts, pants, pajamas, shorts, sweaters, jackets, socks, shoes) ranging from size 2T to 5T. I don't want money, I just want them out of my house. I also don't want somebody who will pick and choose through them, just come and haul them all away because I just want them out of my house! If you can use them, they're yours.
I got, again not exaggerating, more than 150 responses to this ad. I had no idea how to choose so I just picked the first person who responded and told her to come get them, which was obviously a mistake because there were some really needy single moms who responded and I ended up with some rich lady whose kid goes to the preschool that C2 went to, so I know she can afford $1000/month in tuition and can no doubt afford to buy her own fucking clothes.
So, she came by yesterday and was shocked.... SHOCKED.... at how many bags I had. She said "I had no idea you had this much stuff! Do you mind if I look through it and just pick out the stuff I want?"
I'm sorry. Was my ad unclear? Was I, perhaps, vague about how much stuff there was? Maybe she thought I was exaggerating about having 10 garbage bags full of clothes? Upon re-reading the ad, maybe I can see how me saying I wasn't exaggerating might be a little unclear. And, I guess saying that I didn't want somebody to pick and choose might be interpreted to mean that I was, in fact, totally fine with somebody picking and choosing. I wanted to fucking punch her. I said "take it all and please don't look through it." She ended up taking 4 of the 10 bags. Fine, I had 149 other people I can email, I'll go ahead and do that. Bitch.
She just emailed me that it was too much stuff and she didn't want it anymore and she wants me to send her one or two of the names of the 149 other people so she can give it to them. Maybe I'll send them all to her, just to piss her off. Oh, did you say you only wanted one or two names? That wasn't very clear to me, I guess.
UPDATE: I moved on to the next person, who happens to be a blogger and I was treated to lovely pictures of what her garden looked like before she had kids... and then what it looks like now. Yeah. Been there. She just left here with her beautiful baby and all the rest of the bags. I asked her if maybe my ad wasn't clear and she assured me that it was. She didn't look in any of the bags, we just loaded them into her car and she left. YAY!
