I’d like to share a recent transaction I had with forum member jimjimbo. I bought a set of La Scala’s from Jim about 3 months ago on the intentions of picking them up in late April. He let me configure them exactly how I wanted them. He also let me pay with PayPal even though his preferred payment was cash when I picked them up. Last week, another set of La Scala’s were posted in the “garage sale” section. They happened to be my old industrials that I sold last year and have regretted ever since. I noticed Jimbo had made a couple comments about them in the for sale thread, so I sent him a PM letting him know those were my old speakers and answered a question he had about them. Jim sent me a message back and offered to refund my money so I could purchase my old industrials back. Well, while all of this was going on, I was informed that my hours at work would be significantly increasing and would be unable to make a trip out of town for an unknown amount time. I let Jim know my situation and that I probably wouldn’t be able to pick either set of La Scala’s up. He still offered to refund my purchase. I agreed that a refund would be the best option. He refunded my money that day. I offered to pay him for the inconvenience I caused, but he declined. Moral of the story. Jim went above and beyond what he was required to do. He answered numerous questions I’ve had over the last 3 months without any hesitation. He’s been a pleasure to deal with, and most of all, just treated me like a friend. It’s good to know there are still good people out there, and Jim is one of them. Jim, I owe you an apology for tying up a beautiful set of La Scala’s for so long. I’m sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for being so understanding. I owe you one, bud.
