Greedy Message Board Posters...

There has been something irking me for some time. You have these various Jewish message boards which have very practical applications. They certainly have helped many in finding a good local doctor, job, plumber etc.. There are people who need things and request if anyone has a " fill in the blank " would they please let them know so it can go to good use instead of the dumpster. Lately I have found that on a certain message board in a certain area, people have some serious delusions: "Looking for a cherry wood crib in excellent condition". Forget about the fact that if someone did have that kind of crib it's going to a close relative or the garage for the next kid. More importantly is the person saying if it's anything less than mint condition or not a "cherry wood" crib they won't take it? The answer: yes. There was a particular poster who had the audacity to request a car seat made by Britax: about a $300 car seat. My sister-in-law as a joke asked if she would accept a Graco and the poster replied she wouldn't accept anything less than her request. Others have asked if anyone wanted to give away a laptop, I'm waiting for someone to ask for Jacuzzi. Ridiculous!
