Kudos Corner "people at their best" in Switzerland

OK so I need a computer chair and a fan and I see a new post that offers both in the Buy and Sell EF. Cool this is great, I can't afford a computer chair from Ikea so this is perfect.

I respond and send a message back to the guy who is selling his stuff because he has graduated and is leaving for Hong Kong... He is out of here.. very soon. We PM, I show up I buy the chair and the fan. I trust him, I pay him and leave.

I literally draged the items home on the tram and then once at home found out the fan did not work .

I left a message on EF to the seller saying ... Thanks, love the chair ... feeling kinda ripped off about the fan, note to self - aways take the time to plug something like that in before you buy it.

He answered my email within an hour, asked my address, came over ready to give me my 10 CHF back. Then checked the fan and ....I did not know the correct way to set the dials to make it work!!! The fan did work !!(OK no comments about my abilities please).

He got it working and refused any compensation from me... no bus fare or beer!!

That is a Kudos story.

If you know a story where someone or something deserves recognition becasue it was the "right thing to do" please add on
