Only once. I saw a date, I saw the word "Kleidung" on one and "Schuhe" on the other. It wasn't exactly rocket science.

No not crazy - it's what I did when they first turned up in my letter box ...

... speaking personally I am always delighted to help out people to save them going through the worrying and miscomprehension that I went through (and still go through) on so many occasions, but it would be nice if people could help themselves a little- like a more expansive first post (perhaps copying out the words you were stuck on) or even, dare I say it, looking in the little paper dictionnary first?

It's just a thought ....

To be fair, the guy might never even have come across the concept of roadside clothes collections/charity so it mght make no sense at all to him.

He could have been slightly more expansive but I'm guessing the English is not an easy language for him.
