There Are Good People Out There (ThirdgenTA + Ponch)

With all this people hating going around, lets spread some people lovin'.

Ponch did my roof, and stood behind a warranty issue that ended up not being a warranty issue, and then went above and beyond.

ThirdgenTA quickly came out to my house and cost effectively and easily fixed an issue with my garage door that was super annoying.

Both didn't try to rip me off, offered a great product/service at a great price, and were nice people.

So thanks guys.

I personally think that ThirdgenTA's a dick, I had a perfectly, nonworking squeaky wheeled broken spring garage door and within a few hours he snuck over to my house and fixed it all!

Tony with Airtek heating and cooling found a big hole in my heat exchanger that was leaking gas and he pulled out my old crappy HVAC and put in a shiny new one! looking forward to seeing the savings in my bills.

Pilotx1 has fabricated a few bits here and there, and swapped some tired.

CP had ordered parts and done some minor labor.

Ceptor has ordered parts.

Both Dean and Greg hooked me up with decals.

I thought this was a business thread. Personal solids:

Troy for towing the D675 home after I fucked it up.

Bug for farting in the back of the ambulance and making the medic think I shit my pants. He later made up for it when he gave me a pair of Sidi, and he only grabbed my ass once.

Jarod for not fucking me in the rape truck.

And a zillion others.

Oh, you want to play that game Dave?!?


- ThirdgenTA fixed my garage door.
- Ponch did my roof.
- Esme did my mortgage.
- Dean and Greg have done decals for me.
- Butch has sold me a really old lawn mower that still works.
- Pilot made my t-shirt launcher.
- I've got serveral clients who happen to occasionally browse CLSB.
- Dave13 (know that guy), lent me a generator once.
- Uncle Steve bought shields from me and tried to pay with a 6 pack. (kidding)
- And although you still beat me, I'm still cooler.

(P.S...all of the above mentioned are cool people too).

It's funny seeing these long lists of people who have helped others out; just because. And those who have helped with something because it's what they do for a living.

Brianne's Dad gave me grief "why do you always go to your motorcycle friends to help you with stuff, why don't you just take it to (whatever business)".

Dad, I trust these people, and they *do* this for a living, and they often cut me the "CLSB Discount".
