BTW - Not that anyone cares ------ NO I never got the tie-down straps back from the boys loading the Nova in the hotel parking lot.

I never asked for them to be returned -- the young man OFFERED to return them and took my address.... in my mind, they were a "gift".

I hope they made it home safely and with the car intact..... NOT!!!

Well he offered he should atleast be a man of his word.
I mean we could of let him leave without having helped him. Of course the car would of no longer been on the trailer when he got home.

Well -- I just hope whenever he uses the straps - he feels a tinge of guilt...

I cant believe those guys didn't return the straps. They would still be on the side of the road picking up scraps, if you had let them leave.

Payback will suck.

Mike -- It's no skin on my nose -- really -- I have plenty of them - way more than I can use. I just was sad that they couldn't follow thru what they promised. I carry no grudge nor wish them ill. I hope they made it without incident.

Hey! You bought a trailer yet??
