Couple weeks ago I posted a message about a 2 post lift jig I use. I got 6 PMs wanting a blue print of my jig so I drew one up and PMd the prints. Only 1 person was nice enough to thank me for the print. I guess you know I won't do that again.
By the way Mike you are more than welcome.
It's a shame people can't take two minutes to acknowledge something done nice for them. So I see you're a boat captain too. Well, I used to be that is, 'til the C.G. thought my apnea was too big of an issue. 100 Ton Masters, now retired!
Heck there cracking down even more. The list of disqualifications is shocking. Quests they want the older guys gone. Wouldn't mind if they'd pay me to drive my Torpedo around. I'd be running the Montana 500 or something like the coast to coast run.
That's a shame. No good deed goes unpunished. There's a lot out there that think that if they can't do it themselves, you should do it for them for nothing. That's how the welfare system works.
I know what you mean Rick. I'll bet I emailed 500+ copies of the hand cranked coil tester drawings. Got about the same percentage of replies. The guys that did were always both genuine and quick to do so. It was less than 100 I'm sure.
When I was a little kid I remember being taught, "what do you say?" anytime someone gave you something or did something for you. I guess a lot of folks didn't have the same upbringing.
Rick- the "no contact" means that your efforts were approved by the Model T community. If there had been a mistake in your drawing then all **heck** would have broke-loose.
That's the new normal, don-cha-know? Good manners are a thing of the past, it seems, to some anyway.
I just sent you a PM.
Helping people out is good but you shouldn't necessarily need thanks from anyone. I've helped people I never heard from again in many facets of life - hobbies, neighbors, accident victims, (no damsels in distress yet though) as well as large donations to fire victims. I've bought restaurant meals for people who had obvious troubles. I've never heard from anyone, BUT ... I hope they learn do the same for someone else. It's just something that makes you feel good on the inside. I've mentioned it here before, but even stopping for just a few minutes to be a witness to an accident can save someone from months or years of legal hassles - and it only takes a few minutes of your busy life. Then you can disappear back to the Bat Cave, err, Man Cave!
