Freecycle Pet Peeve

Freecycle is awesome. Post your unwanted stuff online, and people who want it pick it up. They get free stuff, you get rid of stuff, everyone's happy.

I've been using Freecycle a lot, lately, mostly to get rid of things we're not using (although I've also managed to pick up a few quirky necessities of my own).

One thing bugs me, though. Who are these people who expect me to DELIVER? I mean, yes, a foosball table is large. A sectional sofa, also darn large. But if they are also free, that means that I am giving them away and getting nothing in return, save the additional space in my house.

So, tell me again why I should be the one who drives it across the county?
