I ordered some stamps and a pearl pen from Michael Strong Stamps ( ).  I didn't realize at the time why it was taking a bit longer, and pretty soon my order arrived.  The product I received was only a partial order and a bit mixed up, with a note that the rest of the order would be filled and forth coming.  I frantically looked up my order, e-mailed Michael with rather terse messages, and received a nice message back.  It wasn't what I wanted to hear, and started writing another message to him, when I found his phone number and proceeded to call him.  (Boy was I going to rip into him, but when I heard his voice all I could do was to apologize all over myself to he and his wife.)

It seems that my order along with a few others were submitted when Michael's daughter was getting married.  Oh my goodness, I could have fell over when he told me what happened.  Well to make a very long story short, I want to thank Michael and his lovely wife for all of the help they gave me. 

Morale of story, just because you feel you are being short changed and your life is getting in the way, stop and think about the other person and what they might be going through.  Thank you Michael for being the person and the vendor that I thought you originally was and are.  BTW, I got the rest of the products Michael, and am going to have some fun.  Thank you thank you thank you.
