Sorry a wee rant.
What is it with Gumtree this weather?
Had a few bits up on Gumtree and have now been contacted 3 times for different things, agreed a price, then the individual doesn't show up. What's the point of going to all the bother of contacting you, making an agreement then not bothering? if you've changed your mind at least let me know, just to be polite or am I being old fashioned? :x

Stopped using Gumtree for the very reasons you mentioned plus more....

"Is the item still for sale?"
"Would you give me it for free?"
"You've stated it is 'free', how much do you want for it?"
"Does it come in a different colour?"
"Would it fit into the back of my car?"
"Is it still for sale?"

These are the questions that I received when selling an IKEA Sofa Bed, the same questions were repeated when I was trying to sell a tent, a display cabinet and dining table and chairs. The amount of time wasters and conversationalists who contacted me was quite startling and I gave up the ghost with most of the stuff, it either went to charity, the tent and sofa bed were sold but other items went to the dump. (To the charity recycle part at Shieldhall).

Yep, got most of those questions.
I liked the one about fitting in the car. My usual answer was that how would I know the size of their car to tell!
I'd understand if these were expensive items but we are talking £15-£20 tops.
I've mostly given up now or donated to charity.

My wife had booked me up for the 'Haunted Hallowe'en Glasgow Necropolis' on 31st October but they've cancelled it, due to 'staffing issues.'

Gutted....

Since joining Slimmers World 6 months ago I've lost a couple of pounds shy of six stone, but tonight I'm destroying a takeaway curry with no guilt whatsoever.

Well done Doorstep!

I had lost (cough cough) a mighty 5 stone all on my own without any help, any groups and then I had my heart attack and all the bloody meds caused me to pile on weight in a very, very short time.

Now that I am in the same organisation, it's taken me around 2 months to lose just short of 1 and a half stone with several more to follow... But today, I crashed and had a Gregg's Scotch Pie and my next indulgence next week will be a Roll and Square Sausage!

Delmont X: Really sorry to hear about your heart problems, sir. I hope you're well on the way to ticketyboo these days, and excellent job on the resurgence in the old droppage of the pounds.
