    I wonder to myself "when did I become a sucker?"

    I'm at Stew Leonard's, I have no idea what the he'll this place is.
    Through the trees I can see "worlds largest", "dairy", "as featured", and "Ripley's" but I'm much too lazy to get out too see what's doing

    Why am I here?

    More importantly why did I drive 3 hours to get here?

    To help a kid out who I've never met...I'm selling a fiberglass trunk for a galant vr4 that I've never used. The kid is from MD, really wanted it, but just couldn't make the full trip so I said fuck it, I'll drive 6 hours round trip just to be a nice guy

    I don't need the money, hell I forgot I even had the thing until about a week ago when I noticed it up in the rafters.

    So here I am...in Norwalk...at Stew Leonard's...waiting for ANOTHER friggin hour for this kid to show up because he "allegedly" hit some traffic

    I, Eric James Hosmer, am a sucker

    I wish I had nothing better to do to help random car guys I dont know.
    I've helped people out many times by giving away parts. Half the time they don't show up.

    Driving 3 hours to meet a guy to give him a part?

    bahahah

    no way in hell. not unless it's someone I know.

    sometimes im too nice and go out of my way to help people out. ive never had it really backfire (knock on wood)

    last act of kindness was helping a dude install coilovers on his WRX in exchange for his stock parts. i went to his house (1.5 hr drive) after working a 12 hour shift. luckily he was a nice guy in 30-40's, just didnt know much about car work.

    Stew Leonards started in Norwalk, I think. There are 3 or 4 in the state, including one on the Berlin Turnpike.
