A look at our own "Innitech"

I work in a company that hovers around 2400 employees. Like most companies we have an internal web page that has news and announcements as well as cafe menus and classified ads.

I will admit that I have bought and sold things off the in-house classified. Having kids grow out of strollers, or high chairs etc. Why not get a few bucks for a "high chair for grammys house?"

The issue is, you'd swear some folks seem to use it almost like their own ebay/craigslist. Dim and I often will forward each other stupid entries and I have to share some of them as of late.

Wanted - lawn mower, I don't have a big yard so I don't need anything fancy if you want to give one away let me know I am getting desperate.
*dude a "cheap" mower will set you back less than $150.00. And if you are getting "desperate" its probably already too late..you are a tool.

Wanted - snow blower. It can be new or used just want to be ready.
*new? its called THE STORE!

For Sale - Kids puzzle, only missing 1 or 2 pieces but still looks "good" $5.00
*perfect! I'll get a puzzle for little march, let her work on it for 15 minutes the FREAK OUT she can't finish it

Wanted - Child safety gate, my daughter is starting to walk and we are looking for a gate for the top of our stairs so she won't fall.
* hey my kid "might" fall down the stairs but we will hold out for a "sweet deal" on a gate.

Wanted - Ice Hockey Helmet - Youth Size - Hi, I'm looking for a helmet for my son. Something in good condition with a cage. Preferably HECC Certified. Thanks! Price: neg
*cuz god knows you can never skimp on safety!

Wanted - TI 84 calculator - I am looking for a TI 84 calculator for my daughter. If you or anyone you know has one that they are not using and are willing to sell, please call or email me. I do need asap. Thanks
*if not asap "whenever" cuz god knows when you'd actually use this calculator in the "real world"

For Sale -Ralph Lauren Cologne - I have a bottle of Ralph by Ralph Lauren I believe it's the biggest bottle that they sell (3.4 oz bottle). I purchased it and decided I do not like the scent on me..I have used it maybe 5 times since xmas...I figured I might as well sell it to someone who will use it. I believe we paid $50 for it I do not have the box it came in. Am asking $25.
*tell us about it "not smelling good".

For Sale - Tigger Stuffed Animal - I am a Disney fanatic and I purchased this Tigger stuffed animal a few years ago for $50....it is in great shape. it has never moved from my bookshelf..this item is unique because when you push in the stomach he talks. I am trying to downsize on my stuffed animal collection and am afraid he will be one of the ones to go. Can take photos if interested pls let me know. Price: 30.00 or best offer
*nuff said..we work with "grownups" remember?!

For Sale - Decorative Mirrors - 12 decorative mirrors/squares, in wood framing. 9 black and 3 brown. 6.25 inches long. These can make a really nice design on a wall or be placed in a hallway. Price: $1each or $10 for 12
*if they "look so good" why are you selling there Martha Stewart??!.

For Sale - Movies - Titles on VHS, priced individually: Apollo 13 (4.00) Armageddon (4.00) Jerry Maguire (3.00) The Godfather (6.00) Murder at 1600 (3.00) Kiss the Girls (4.00) When Harry Met Sally (4.00) The Deep End of the Ocean (4.00) Price: varies
*someone charging more that 1.00 for used VHS tapes. This person needs to be beaten with a tire iron.

For Sale - Baby Hedgehogs - Adorable, healthy baby hedgehogs will be ready for new homes in about 6 weeks. The litter consists of 5 albino and one chocolate colored baby. They are wonderful pets but do require a dedicated owner. Please review the link for information regarding these cute little guys. Email me if you are interested in purchasing. I do have photos. Price: 100.00 Ext:
*is this legal?! Honey no dogs..but I got a sweet deal on a hedgehog at work today.

I've always wanted a hedgehog, if I payapaled the money to you is there any chance you could send me an albino one? 1st class mail can be expensive, so just send them media mail.

this was a riot - we have a similar thing but it has cars and other larger things, no mirrors or tiggers.

also, if 'the deep end of the ocean' is 4.00 why is 'the godfather' only 6.00? if 'godfather' is 6 then 'ocean' should be -10...

In case anyone was wondering on VHS prices, I checked Wal-Mart last night and a brand new VHS film costs $1.88. So $3-6 for a used VHS is equivalent to bending over and...
