Much as I was, the cost was prohibitive being that I have to find a new place to live and so on. I e-mailed a simple reply saying that I couldn't afford them right now as I was in the process of separating from my wife.
The reply that I received near bought a tear to my eye:
I'm very sorry to hear about your current domestic situation. That really sucks... for lack of a better phrase. Let's just say I can relate what you're going through and if it's alright with you, if you give me your mailing address I would like to send you a free Finder icon pillow. You will not be billed in anyway, and I hope it's a pick-me-up in a dark time.
As we say in the states, "bro's before ho's."
Thanks, Adam. Hope to hear from you soon.
Kindness like this was just what I needed and I feel I should make some effort to pay it forward/back/sideways.
If you read this and feel so inclined, visit Throwboy and buy a pillow from them. They make fantastic looking pillows and to top it all off are lovely people.
Tears are actually welling while i'm writing and I feel like a proper big girls blouse now so i think i'll leave it there.
The pillow arrived and it's fantastic!
