When you order stuff (?) online, there is sometimes a comment box at the end before you hit the order button.
Some websites should call it “bonus box”
A few days ago we got this mail from Andrew:
My name is Andrew Hong, a college student at Virginia Tech. I thought you all at SU might get a little kick out of a little game I played.
I ordered a leather armrest for my 9-3 from Roy Sances over at Saab Parts USA. He’s a terrific guy, and I’ve ordered from SPUSA before when I blew off my rear hatch emblem from a high pressure washer. Naturally, me being a college student, I want to cause trouble wherever I go, and wondered how attentive are the staff at SPUSA. In the comments box during checkout, I wrote the following:
“Please draw an outline of a Saab 900 classic on the box.” I thought it would be fun to see if anyone reads the comments box, and if someone did see it, it would be entertaining to see a quick 30 second permanent marker drawing of my dream car on the box.
So imagine my surprise when I received this:
I was completely amazed. After emailing Roy back, I learned he spent time between packing drawing a little here and there to get this. He used this picture on his wall from a 1979 magazine article as a base:
You can see Roy is a very good sketcher! I’m quite pleased. You can even see the Inca wheels on the sketch!
Saab Parts USA is a great sponsor to SU, and a great retailer for everyone, including troublesome college students. Here’s my reaction to this:
Anyways, thought I would share this with you all to generate some amusement. Thanks for your time!
Well, We thank You Andrew.. this mail gave me big smiles, thats for sure 🙂
But to everyone that reads this.. and are about to order from Saab USA Parts, don’t give them too much drawing work 😉
