My gut is telling me to pay the guy. I gree with you jackr. In fact, this person being the thief never crossed my mind once until I went into my best friend's work and gave him the joyous news. When I told him the story, he immediately told me, "don't you dare py this guy more than $100. You will be acting like a door matt... and if this guy is able bodied, I'm sure he must have had something to do with it", I told him about my "no questions asked" rewaard post, and he told me to tell the guy, That was last month, this month it's $100.
That does not seem right to me. I live in a town called Evanston. The guy told me that he works for a bus company that sends busses as far as Evanston... as we talkeed and made small talk. But why would he say this if he was involved?
I will show up with the $500 (he could have asked for $1,000, but in fact, I was the one who brought up the reward. I knew he found me on flicckr and I knew it said $1,000 reward.) and play it by ear. I think I am going to pay the scratch. I like to stay a man of my word.
Picking it up at 2:30 today. Bringing it home, plugging in and turning up LOUD! Who wants to jam?
-Peace, Thanks all....
