"You told me what was going on and gave me a possible solution to it as well. I really want to thank you for that cause I have had some bad experiences before and it can be maddening when there is nothing you can do about it. I will definitely order from you guys again because of this. Is there anyway to pass this along to your boss? You did a great job and I would love to make sure you got the credit you deserve for it."
