Fat Lama-anyone tried it?

online reviews are mixed..raves from some, complete horror stories from others. Its been getting some press (Forbes, for one) and trying to get a foothold in the USA (it began in the UK, I believe).

I guess you are referring to the peer to peer rental site of goods and equipment. No experience but plenty of reviews on Google as you read. Many about Fat Lama lying and items being stolen, etc. Some call it a scam. I guess a modern internet replacement for brick and motar rental businesses. Seems to be the business platform du jour.

Back to the real world, tastes like alligator which takes like snake which tastes like chicken. No wonder there are Vegans among us.

I don't know if it's true or not but I'm told irritated llamas are really adept at spitting directly into your eyes.
No wonder people eat them.

some really funny people on here...

anyway, was just looking for some feedback from this community, as opposed to random Google searching. I guess no one here has actually tried it, though.

Sounds like the situation to jump in.

I wonder if anyone wants to rent my dog?
