There really are good folks out there. Drove 50 miles to the Lowe's in Wichita Falls to get some Butyl Tape. It's like a sticky tar tape. Website said they had it. Get there only to find out it's special order. There was a guy waiting on his order to filled named Jorge. He heard me ask and said they don't carry it. He said I have tons of it at home office. He called wife, ten minutes later she showed up with six rolls. Plenty for my job. We settled on a price, shook his hand and thank him profusely. He gave me his card and said if I needed more to give him a call. Thank you my friend Jorge!
Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Good deal, pay it forward.

    I really enjoy hearing stories like this 👍
    Too many stories today leave me scratching my head, wondering...

    Good for him, there still are people out there that are willing to help a stranger.

    Whenever I lookup an item at Lowe's, HD, TS, and they say its in stock, I call them to verify its actually there unless its a common item. It has saved a lot of unnecessary trips.
