This is the best site with the best people!
I have been handing out here for several years, and everyone I have spoken with has been friendly and always more than helpful. TKAZ proved this point once again.
Several weeks ago Tom had posted a link to a clock that was for sale on Craigslist. The seller was only intrested in a cash deal, and would not ship it. This was a bit of a problem, the clock was down in VA and I live in Boston. Oh well, I figured that I wouldn't be getting this one.
I spoke with Tom about it. He offered contact the seller to make sure the owner still had it, and said he could go & buy it for me. I sent Tom the funds, and he went and picked it up for me. He then went above and beyond; rather than just tossing it in the mail, he offered to bring it up with him when he was visiting family in Conneticut because he was concerned it would get trashed if mailed. He took time out of his weekend to deliver the clock to my inlaws house in Western MA. I was out of town, otherwise I would have gladly drove out to meet him and at least buy him lunch and a few tasty beverages.
What a standup guy! I can't thank Tom enough for taking the time to help me out. Tom, let me know the next time you are up in the area, I at least owe you burgers & beers.
