You can't even give this stuff away.

Several neighbors were having yard sales, so I dragged a bunch of items out into the driveway and marked them with FREE signs. A fridge, a couple book cases, a recliner, a wooden cabinet, 4 wheels and tires and some exercise equipment.

8 hours later, almost nothing has been taken. An old pot, my sister's old Hookd on Foniks set, and 2 wheels and tires.

I'm surprised nobody has taken the fridge. It's a really nice one, ice and water in the door and whatnot.

Lots of people don't trust "free" things because you never know where they've been or something. You should put prices on, like $200 $75 MAKE OFFER. XD

the ironic thing about trying to give away hooked on phonics is that someone who needs it won't be able to read the title X0D

almost as amusing as the commercial announcer for belltone "If you are hearing impaired take down this phone #"

It's like "gift ideas" ... a lot of them will actually sell more units at $50 than they will at $10, violating the usual demand curve, because people feel better if they spend $50 on a gift rather than "cheap out on someone special" and get the same thing for a sawbuck. :)
