What goes around comes around
As I said in my previous post
A "thank you" is nice , but not esential.
As point of interest, I am just back from Paris after recovering my bike that broke down a week or so ago (gearbox nackered).
A very helpfull biker in Paris , Phileppe manager of the bike accessory shop TEAMAXE in Billancourt ,who looked after my gear till I was able to return for it.
I thanked him , but he assured me that he had done nothing special and was glad to help. Never the less when I returned to Paris on Wednesday I brought him a wee present from Scotland, nameley a bottle of 15 year old single Malt. He told me that it was totaly un-nessasary to reward him, (but the way he held on to that bottle showed that he was quite pleased
So as I said a thank you is not nessary but is nice.
There were other people that helped me while I was there that I was not able to thank, like the BMW mechainic who came to check out my bike and gave me a lift on the back of his scooter
( I was shitting myself).
The shop assistant that came out and helped me push the bike to safety and several more that helped in small but important ways.
So as I said "Chill out bud" , next time it may be you.
P.S. If I were you I would call myself VATman, not batman, cause at the end of the day you want your percentage.
