New Shirt - I Lift Things When Asked Nicely.

So r stevens ( clango.org ) was having a "Seven Dollar Shirt Surprise Sale" in which he was selling left over, discontinued shirts. He said specifically that, "You can't pick a specific design because I can't guarantee we have it in your size. You're buying a surprise– that's why it's so cheap!" But I saw he had a shirt listed that I wanted to get before, but it got discontinued. So I wrote him:

"I know, I know, I KNOW you said we can't request shirts. However, I am an Olympic-Style weightlifter and have REALLY wanted the "I lift things when asked nicely" shirt. I'd love to wear it to my competitions. I was really sad when it got discontinued before I got a chance to buy it. Had I known you still had some, I would have contacted you sooner. There's probably not any other shirt I really want, but if I don't get that one, enjoy my money and continue the good work...though I will seek you out and crush you.

 

Thanks!"

Kind guy that he is, he replied, but unfortunately,

"I only have L and S in that one - unless you want the one in my closet. It's a slightly worn, CLEAN XL that I don't use much any more."

I didn't think a large was going to fly, so I told him to send me the one out of his closet, because, "I tend to get bigger, not smaller."

Two days later, I got my shirt.

I sent him these pictures and he said:

"Dang, if I had pics like that on the site I may not have had to ever cancel the shirt!"
