""Porch Pick Ups" when buying items from Marketplace, ect"


          

Am I the only one who feels uneasy about when people say come get it off the porch when then aren't home? Mainly in white neighborhoods of course.

That just seems like an in invitation for the cops to be called.

Even if I got receipts and paperwork, due to porch pirates I'd still expect to get hassled (and rightfully-so).

Freecycle or something like that....
sometimes folks selling/giving away stuff like that are just weirdos and don't want to interact with humans so they will leave items on the porch or curb for retrieval. I've coped a few nice things for free & cheap that way before.

Brand new Ikea shelving
Brand new bags of mulch
Brand new lumber
Tools, etc...

Even though it's a come up, I do be feeling like I'm about to get hemmed up when I go to retrieve. I bet white folks don't be feeling like that.

One guy I emailed told me I could come by and pick up some free bricks from his yard whenever, but I never did because it felt mad-sketchy.

One a side note, I meet the friendliest white folks when doing deals on craigslist. Always inviting me into their house and talking to me about stuff.
