In Reply to: AllentownMike, I read your Brian Lynch story posted by Abdul Rassa on March 19, 2001 at 11:40:52:

So heres a story for everyone to read. I didn't plan on posting it here but after everything that went down I decided to. Way back when the Vulgarthon was going on my wife and I made the trek to Red Bank. It was alot of fun but I had lost my watch outside the theatre. I was upset because this was a watch given to me by a loved one who is no longer here. Something that reminded me of her everyday. So I thought maybe someone would have found it and posted a message on the board. Kevin responded that Malcolm had it and I should email him. So I emailed Malcolm he responded rather quickly to let me know he gave it to Brian Lynch. Okay. So I then emailed Brian. He responded that he would send it to me, all I had to do was give him my address. Great I thought. I would even send him a check when I got the watch to cover shipping and to thank him. Week went by no watch. So I emailed him again. He apologized and said some family issues came up (which I wont get into here) and he promised he would send it out at the end of the week. Okay. week passes by, two weeks pass by. So I send him an email again. This time he responds, snippy and says its not his first priority. He also promises again to send it out at the end of the week. I respond telling hijm I understand and that I went through a similar situation with my family. So I wait a month. No watch. Send several emails, no responses. Wait a few more weeks. He goes off to Cali.When he gets back he sends me an email saying how sorry he is and that he should have sent it out as soon as he could, said it was a shitty excuse but it is an excuse and he is sorry. I had asked him in my email for his address so that I could send him a self addressed envelope so all he had to do was drop the watch in it and stop at any mailbox and put it in. making it very simple. he thought this was a good idea, gave me his address and said he hoped to make it up to me. So the nest day i send out the envelope, I put it in a large box and throw in some Limited edition Disney Lithographs for him to say thanks. Wait a week, then another. Realize he is in Cali again. Its his job so I understand. Send him an email to let me know if he got the package and to let me know when he gets back. He gets back, does not respond. I wait a few days, no response. Send off another email, asking him to respond to tell me whats up, or should I call him. Boom I get a response that says he mailed it out the past Fri. guesses I didnt get it yet. So I wait and wait and now its been like three weeks. He still wont respond to my emails. I wanted to know did he send it out? Did he ask someone else and they forgot? Did he just say the hell with this and threw it out? Or was he just jerking me around? At this point I know I will never get it back. After letting all of you know about this I am almost positive I wont. So I am out a watch, no big deal not that I have any money to buy a new one. The thing that hrts the most is what the watch represented for me. Okay let the flamming begin.
