Fun with crutches

I had a crutches but don't need it anymore. First I decided give it anybody for free here http://www.englishforum.ch/free-stuf...ne-zurich.html but thread was closed.
Then I go to the pharmacy but they did not take crutches. They send me to the hospital. In hospital receptionist said me they also cannot took it because I payed for it. And they are not eligible to take it for free. Also I cannot throw it to garbage because it too big.
And finally what is supposed I should do with this f.. crutches if I need utilize it somehow? Why I have so many problems and wasting my time for so simple thing?

Re: Fun with crutches

Write "Gratis" on a piece of paper and attaches to said crutches.

Leave out on the street.

They'll be gone pretty quick. If not for medical need, some kid'll enjoy playing pirates.

So you left your trash near a hospital in the hopes that someone else would sort it out for you?

Re: Fun with crutches

No, I leave it in the hospital with other wheels and crunches department.
It is not a garbage. And I don't want somebody or me sort it because of Swiss law stupidness and bureaucracy.
And you know I really don't care what next.

Re: Fun with crutches

had to pay for them, so kept them! Had a further accident so also needed them again, hubby had knee surgery and used them, then i had knee surgery and used them LOL. So overall were worth keeping and not paying out for more

Re: Fun with crutches

Just in case it happens to anyone else, but your local Red Cross would take them and they also lend them for free. Your local Church or Salvation Army would also take them, and so would most charity shops.
