I've got to say that now looking back on this whole event, I'm disappointed in the way I reacted! Can you tell that I'm spoiled and used to getting things my way? lol
The situation was resolved with us getting most of our money back. It was finally Rich's wife who offered the money, mostly to get rid of Luv! She was laying the quilt trip on him pretty heavily. In all fairness to Rich, I've asked around and it seems like the man is really pretty well liked. It does seem like the problem was with his grandson, not really with him. The classic between a rock and a hard place type of situation.
Now going back to being spoiled. Once again things really seemed to have worked out for the better. We've already bought another tandem. This time a Trek T900 from a legitimate bike shop. So it has a full warrenty. It's much lighter than the Raliegh and seems considerably better built. So we'll probably be happier with this one anyway.
Revenge? You people know me better than that. Even a little sorry I used the term. I'm still a firm believer that when you treat others with respect and kindness, it's what you usually get in return.
Once again, Life is good!
