"Free" is the name of the game

I offered a school clarinet on craigslist, under "musical instruments". In that ad I said I preferred to give it to a school or student. Two or three people responded. One came by, a junior high student, and said it wasn't the same as the one she uses at school. I don't think she had much knowledge of clarinets but there were some things that were different and she couldn't seem to reconcile them. So I accepted the offer of a man who said he used to play clarinet, was a musician, would love to have one again. But he failed to pick it up. The first time he said he couldnt' find my place. When I gave him specific directions, though, he did not respond at all. So the hell with that.

I just this morning posted it in the "free stuff" section. People are falling all over themselves, asking for it. I promised it to the first one who responded, who says she'll pick it up this afternoon. Until she actually picks it up I am keeping the ad up - or maybe I shouldn't. I have several names to go to in case she flakes. Yeah. I'll delete the ad.
