Tom Scharpling is so nice to his fans it’s down to the damn details. I ordered a “Newbridge Is For Lovers” shirt a few weeks ago from his website. A week later, I got a very nice e-mail from Tom saying that due to the large volume of orders, they had run out of my shirt. It would be shipped as soon as a new batch arrived. No big deal. Today I get mail from Stereolaffs with not only a shirt, a mouse with a cape pin, an OBOY postcard, and a Friends Of Tom Membership card! I thought I missed out on those.
Here’s the kicker. Tom shipped my shirt next day mail. No company does that at no extra charge. Hell, he never charged for shipping in the first place! Tom didn’t need to do that, but he did.
So, how good of a guy is Scharpling? It’s down to the details.
Maybe I should’ve titled that “Nerdiness is” instead.
