.. of sunnysports.com. not to be confused with sunny sports, inc., a horrible dirtbike company out west, this online company has one crappy customer service policy. ups lost my package from them. i called the company and was told in no uncertain terms that they would open a claim with ups and if ups accepted it, they would either refund my money or send me another package. that is all fine. however, if ups would not accept responsibility, then they would call me back and see if i wanted to order again. and pay them again. twice for the same product. whatever, that's their right, but be aware of this kind of customer service. i've never had another gear retailer ever tell me something like that.

I just finished assembling that super duper shower I bought. After the third time finding that they had included the wrong size screws I called the company up. The lady was all apologetic and offered to send a new door assembly plus all new screws. I understand that shit happens and she admitted they had a number of units that got shipped out with problems like what I was describing. She was open and honest about the whole thing and was willing to do whatever was needed to make it right. By the end of the conversation we were laughing about their quality control department. So I went to the hardware store again and got the right screws and finished assembling the shower. The only thing I was mad at was not having anyone to be mad at. I just finished my walk around the block so now I'll connect the drain line and it will be finished.

I am writing a book and I would like everyone out there to send me $100 so I can thru-hike. I will send you a copy of the movie Trail Angels. I would also like everyone who I gave a free copy to send me $50.

Thank you.

It looks to me that you are the confused, humorless clown.

It really surprises me that you are the only one that took my post serious.

I looked for a tongue in cheek smilie. Can someone help me out.

On second though, I don't need one, because most my friends know to take a grain of salt on the things I say. :angel:

If I am such a dick, why did Miss Janet text me last night at 11 to tell me she was going to start this morning. Miss Janet is a good friend of mine and she knows me well.

god helps those who help themselves

If you are quoting God there are many cases about helping others. Just afew below:

Hebrews 13:16 ESV / 332 helpful votes
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

HelpfulNot Helpful
Luke 6:38 ESV / 298 helpful votes
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

1 John 3:17 ESV / 207 helpful votes
But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?

HelpfulNot Helpful
Philippians 2:4 ESV / 184 helpful votes
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.


BTW LW unless you have a different Bible the quote you made is not in it. It's popular, but you may as well have made it up yourself.

Then how do you know that God helps those that help themselves? Maybe instead he helps those that help others or maybe he helps those that refuse to help themselves or maybe he even doesn't care on way or the other.
