A WWYD quandry
Quandry: on 11/18, a local woman posted on a FB freecycle type network that she was looking for HH goods, in particular, kitchen items. I know her family, although not her personally. Early 20's with 2 young kids, was living with inlaws, sounds like the young family is finally getting their own place (they were teen parents). Great. I reached out that I had some items, posted a photo, she wanted all save 2 items (which I donated recently as I am in decluttering mode). Arrangements made for pickup on 11/27. Just prior to the appointed time, she reached out that she had to take her son to the walk in clinic, could she maybe come later that day or some day the upcoming week?. Great, thanks for the communication, let's reschedule for the upcoming week.
I heard nothing. I reached out 2 days later, she replied right away, appololized, the whole family has been so ill. (I am assuming that the kiddo gave the rest of the family whatever he had) I replied, no worries, please get back to me by Fri to reschedule pickup.
As of yesterday morning, still no response so I sent yet ANOTHER text asking if she was still interested.
I want this box OUT, it would have been donateed along with the rest that I recently donated. I don't want to come off as a biotch . . but should I send yet another follow up stating that if you don't come and get the boxed items by X day, they are donated? I've been more than accomodating, and am trying to help this young family out, but geez . . .WWYD?
