    I went to Legoland yesterday with my family and another family. I saw a man on a ride with a Fender Custom Shop backpack on. I yelled to ask him where he got it from and he said he worked at Fender.

    I saw him hours later and went to strike up a conversation. While talking, he emptied a small amount of items from the backpack and offered it. I did not expect it and I did accept. What a way to have this.

    He gave you the backpack and you didn't give him the pack back? Nice. ;)

    Talk about good customer relations
    And for a person to interact that nicely with another human being these days

    This is awesome

    People are supposed to be scary;)

    At least that’s what the television says

    Feel good story of the day, thanks, I needed that after dumping a full iced coffee on my laptop keyboard and being grounded from the internet for 4 hours. The keyboard looked like a pond of iced coffee and after dumping it off and wiping down I ran fingers across the keys and another cup of iced coffee came out.

    Lenovo are a great company too. I pulled my laptop apart as much as I could, broke several pieces off while doing so. Discovered a small furry critter inside that turned out to be the cooling fan covered in dust/fur. Reassembled and had 4 screws left over. The thing was dead for 4 hrs, no sign of life and then it started up all by itself and has been working perfectly.:)

    That was a nice of the guy to give you the backpack. Not many would do the same.
