Guys- I want to share this with you. When life kicks your ass and you think that there's not one good soul left on earth... Read on: I have a line on a little 4x4 diesel compact tractor that needs some transmission work. might be a cool project. The seller wants $850, which is a good deal for what it is. I have been communicating with him back and forth, and was supposed to have the tractor bought by the 14th, but I simply can't afford it right now. I'm self-employed, and some payments due to me have not yet come in. I told him I was NOT going to be able to buy it (on time) and I'd have to HOPE he had it later, when I could afford it. This was his response, "Dear Chris

I've been thinking, and what I really want is the tractor gone. Spring is coming and I need the room in my shop for working. Now most guys who want to fix old tractors are usually good people, and it feels to me like you have been straight with me.
So, I am proposing you come and pick this tractor up and take it home. Then when you have the money you send me a cheque. Also bring a memory stick to download the parts and service manuals."

Is this not a damned kind soul or what? And I have never met him!

Right you are -all of you- and you wanna know the sad part? He're a guy I have never met, effectively "loaning" me $850, and get this- I just has a "friend" rip me off for $50. Seriously.

Think of it as paying $50 got get rid of an a$$h0le.  May he never set foot on your property again.  amen, botha!   cheers 

And I like to try to "pay it forward" when I can.  Just last night I repaired a snowblower for a friend's father.  He said he was paying me, but I don't like to take money from friends.  (I'm not running a business, this is a hobby fer crissakes).  So I asked if he had anything to barter with.  I ended up with a 2 year old Craftsman snowblower that he was going to throw away...bad gearbox.  Looks brand new with an ohv snow king with electric start etc...   cheers Cool
