"Small World" forum experience
I had one of those "Wow, it's a small world" experiences with another forum member the other day when I contacted forum member 0557 (Rick) about some mattresses he'd advertised for sale. After a couple of emails, we figured out that the mattresses from his Airstream would fit my Argosy. When I found out that he lived in Ellijay, GA (not that far from my home in Nashville), I made plans to go there and pick up the mattresses.
Rick's plans changed, so he called to tell me we'd have to reschedule. As we spoke on the phone, I mentioned that I sell real estate. Rick told me that he has a friend, Richard, who also sells real estate in Nashville - and this guy turns out to be a good friend of mine who works in my office! Rick is a bass player, and he played on an album recording session for Richard several years ago.
When you consider that there was no common thread between the three of us, and we made the connection at random in a nation of almost 300 million people, the odds against something like this are truly staggering.
Anyone else have any forum-related small-world tales to report?
