Re: No Shows!
Hello Freecyclers, Have you ever made plans with anyone and gotten stood up? Even worse, have you ever canceled plans with anyone to do a favor for a friend, only to have your friend not show up? I'd like to think that within the context of humanity and the more specific context of the Freecycle(TM) community, we are all (at least) friends. As such, we should show each other courtesy and understanding. So what I'm trying to say is: If you express interest in a posted item and are gifted that item, please show up when and where you said you would. If you can't make it, *please* find some way to notify the original poster so that an alternate pickup may be arranged. Finally, if you are unable to make it and have not immediately notified the poster, please don't be upset if the item is then gifted to someone else. At the end of the day, folks, it's up to the donor to determine to whom a particular item will be gifted. There is no first-come, first-served policy. Having posted a Wanted for that same item does not give anyone "dibs" on it. We should always remember to treat any item received as the gift it is, and the donor with the courtesy and respect s/he deserves. Thanks for reading! Your Ipswich,Qld AU Freecycle Moderators
