Kijiji Experiment: who will give me a free couch?

Do crappy Kijiji ads work?

My experiment, so far, says 'no'. I posted the following ad a week ago, and I've received only one reply so far, from "". The response: "lol".

Wanted: Deliver me a pull-out couch ...
Price Free

You know, I've been browsing the "Free" stuff for ages, and I'm usually appalled at the kind of stuff people ask for. I flag the ads that are against the rules and shake my head at the rest of them. Some I even send to the "You Suck at Kijiji" web site.

But this time, I figure, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

I'm a relatively new homeowner, and there's one room in the house that we've put off doing anything with. It's just full of junk. And stuff we're selling on Kijiji (which is not junk, obviously).

I think what'd kick-start the decorating would be a decent pull-out couch.

I'd love to surprise my new wife by setting up the room while she's away for the weekend. But because of that, I won't have a car this weekend. Not that we could fit that kind of furniture in a hatchback anyway.

So, if you could find it in your heart to help out someone who probably, honestly, has the resources to help himself, please do so.

Get back to me if you can deliver a decent (ie. bug-free, non-stinky, non-shredded, non-rusty, not-puke-ugly) pull-out couch to Timberlea this weekend.

God (or other appropriate universal force) bless you.
