A Gentleman called and described his issue.
I Politely and Professionally answered his questions.
I then offered advice on how to remedy the situation.
All was good.
Two Days later, the same Gentleman called. My suggestion was just the right solution.

Then He asked:>

"What do I owe you for your consultation". (This is the 1st time ever)
I was "dumbfounded" and taken a back!

"Nothing of course, I was on a 2 hour ride home, and enjoyed your conversation". was my answer.

WOW!! Good Normal people still exist!!!!!! (He was over 40 yrs, Perhaps that's why.)

MORAL: Just returning the favor! smile

That guy will probably call back when he really needs you.

Several years ago, the GC who built my home was doing another custom. He called me and said he had a problem with his EC. No drywall yet an asked if I would look at the system for him. It was a disaster. Kitchen outlets wired to LR outlets, nearly all of 2nd floor on one circuit, etc. You get the picture. As he knew I wired my home, he asked me to do him a favor and correct the problems. I did, took about a week. Later, he called me and wanted to know how much he owed me. I told him that he asked for a favor and I donít charge for favors. We have been close friends now for 14 years.
