    WHAT you have to be kidding me. The guy wants cut split and seasoned firewood, minimum of 2 cords and wants it delivered, FOR FREE! Or he will charge YOU for your FREE wood if he has to pick it up!! come on this has to be people that get a laugh out of this stuff?

    Yeah, that is bogus math. A cord is 4x4x8, so a half cord is 2x2x4, right? While I am posting here I might as well mention that I can sell you guys a half cord at a good price.

    NO. THE COUCH IS NOT FOR SALE. PLEASE STACK THE WOOD AROUND THE COUCH AND THE 52 INCH PLASMA TV WHICH IS ALSO NOT FOR SALE. ALSO, I AM ONLY AVAILABLE TO PICK UP THE WOOD FOR A FEE AFTER 1 P.M. BUT BEFORE 5 P.M. AS I WILL BE IN BED SLEEPING BEFORE THAT AND THEN I'M GOING OUT TO THE BARS AFTER 5 TO HANG OUT WITH MY GIRLFRIEND AND SEVEN KIDS.

    There is one like this every winter in our local buy/sell bulletin(sort of Uncle henry's). Reads same every year.

    Need firewood we are disabled. Must be cut and delivered free.. we can split it.

    Nothing against living on disability but if you're able to split wood I'm assuming you can earn a paycheck

    I'll have to find a copy and scan the clipping.

    i work with a bunch of disabled people. Their disability would lead them to believe they can get something for nothing, too.

    I just realized I am disabled. My pesky job is disabling me from cutting firewood today. Please help.

    I should run an ad like that just to see what comes through the door. It never hurts to ask. Even if others label me as... _g

    Now this is maybe 5 miles NW of me & Mulberry is always welcome in my wood stacks,but I'm no trash hauling service either.....;) They state they 'would like it removed & cleaned up soon before it kills the grass....well with an ad worded like that you're in for a long wait ;lol
