WANTED: The BlackBerry Curve 8530 phone

Date: June 7, 2010 1:02:12 PM EDT

Hi. This is a long shot but looking for a BlackBerry Curve 8530 phone. I have the Storm & it is not working good & would like to switch to a Curve phone. Please email me!! Thank you!

Saw the post above and thought, hmmm, maybe we should save this one for our “Choosy Beggars” category and so I set it aside.  What makes this one worthy of that fine distinction is that they are asking for a specific and fairly new model BlackBerry.  Most Freecyclers with their feet firmly planted on terra firma a.k.a. reality will usually word their request as follows (these are all actual FC posts we saved):

  • WANTED: ATT cell phone- dog ate mine-UGH!!


  • WANTED: Sprint Cell Phone- Hello,I am in need of a Sprint cell phone.  My Blackberry fell off the sink into the, you got it, the toilet!!  I didnot have the insurance on it.  If anyone has a Sprint phone they are no longer using, please please, let me know.  I will put it to good use and never leave it in the bathroom again!!  Thanks for looking….

A bit dramatic yes, maybe even stretching the truth but like we’ve mentioned on Freakcycle before, sob stories work on us, the gullible Freecylers that we are.

Why did we post the time on that Curve phone request?  Because a couple of hours after posting their first WANTED, they came back with the one below.  A BlackBerry Storm is just as good as the Curve even when “it is not working good”, right? Solution…Bling blao…bling it out.

WANTED:Rhinestone/any cool blackberry storm 9530 phone covers. :

Date: June 7, 2010 3:20:56 PM EDT

Hi I’m looking for a rhinestone phone cover for my Blackberry Storm. If u have any other cool storm phone covers that will be good too. Email me please! Thanks!

Brilliant (not a pun).

Freecycle’s mission is simple.  Recycling and re-purposing by putting stuff in other people’s hands to keep it out of the landfills and give said objects another life.  We here at Freakcycle are approaching our one-year anniversary.  We remain steadfast in our mission to find the strangest and/or most bizarre posts we can in the Freecycle Network.

We are amazed to report officially, that the greed has outnumbered the kook and that our Choosy Beggars category is filled to capacity.  If we were Twitter, you’d see the whale.  Dime a dozen, these lurkers and opportunists on Freecycle who in lieu of asking for something, go way above and beyond in their efforts to annoy the crap out of us by being greedy, picky, nit-picky bastards.

Hang in there for a moment and picture this scenario…not only are we humble do-gooders expected to add to the Freecycle horn of plenty, we become photographers, loan officers, and delivery personnel. What a wonderful life.

As one of our Fans of Freakcycle put it…It’s Freecycle people, not Dear Santa!

As we mentioned, our cup overfloweth. (Is that a word?  The Great Brain says no, but it stays) This is Part 1.  Part 2 will be posted tomorrow. Here are a few submissions which have left us with our jaws hanging open.

WANTED: See List –

So i would kindly ask if you can bring the boxes here. I’m in ***** off Central ave near the ***** plaza. And also… I’m pregnant and can’t do heavly lifting, since we’ve only been in the area a few short months, we don’t know anyone. So if we could get 2 people to help load a u-haul saturday… It would only take 2 MAYBE 3 hours tops out of your day we’d greatly appreciate it. I know it’s asking alot all at once. But we have to be out by this saturday night. Thank you in advanced. Please email me and I can give you more info.”

Why is hair okay when it’s attached to someone’s head but not okay when it is hanging out  the back of someone’s pilly sweater or  wrapped around an elastic band?   I get skeeved out finding my own hair in the drain and so does everyone else in my family.  My hair grows like a weed and continuously has to regenerate itself…not my fault, ok?  But this post is not about me and my magic hair nor is it about Sir Donald Trump’s mangy rug although it could have been, given today’s blog title.  

 The hair entry, naturally won last week’s Freak of the Week.  Of course it did.  Hair is gross.  End of story.
