Best of Craigslist 2

This was under "Free Stuff" in Craigslist. I was browsing to see what people wanted to get off their hands for the price of $0, and I have to say I was surprised to see a nuptial outfit.

Now, let me make one thing clear: if someone desperately wants to get married and can't afford a wedding dress, seeing one that fits on Craigslist for free is probably a magical and encouraging moment. No hate on poverty.

On the other hand, there's a big difference between receiving a dress for free-- from say, a parent or friend-- and seeking one from a stranger. On the Internet.

"Hey Hunny! I picked up a dress! Online! From Craigslist! Let's head over to the Church now. Did you get the invites out?"

The person who's posting this also is a little funny. Let's be real: this person decided that the trip to Goodwill wasn't worth the gas and time it would take to drop off. They're leaving the dress on their porch-- not even milking out a few spare dollars. Was it their ex-wife's? Mothers? Cross-dressing son's? What use did this thing have that gave it such little value, even a remote hint of nostalgia, to the previous owner? And is that person so selfless that they want to simply give it away free to increase their closet space?

This dress totally has bedbugs.
