The other day I posted some unsolicited praise from a customer about our Banjees Wrist Wallet (click here for that post.) Today’s post is also from a customer, but this comes from the “I Couldn’t Make this Up” file. Let’s start with Linda’s original email to Sprigs, sent via the form on our Contact Us page. Linda wrote:
I have lost my wrist banjee that saved my life in quicksand and now I have gone to sooooo many stores looking for one, that I have spent more money on gas than what the product is worth. Is there any way to purchase one from you? PLEASE!!!! Linda
WAIT A MINUTE! “Saved my life in quicksand”!?!? I had to hear that story so I replied asking Linda for more details. She wrote back:
The quicksand thing was…. Last year I was in our swamp and alone. Had my phone strapped to my wrist and a rope tied to my waist, which was connected to my truck. I am out in the middle of nowhere trying to remove some invasive species of Phragmities and hit a very Cold spot in the swamp. My waders sunk and the muck became quicksand and was drawing me down. I hung onto the rope and used my teeth to pull out the phone. Sounds so Neanderthal. Called my husband, who was 1/6 of a mile away from me. he came down and slowly pulled me out using the truck. I am an organic farmer and many times when I am out in the fields I cannot put a phone in my pocket cause I cannot hear it due to chain saw, tractors, or chipping dead trees for mulch. Having the phone of the wrist keeps it close to my ears so I can hear. Glad I kept the container that the Sprigs was attached to.
See, I told you I could never make this up. Thanks for sharing your story Linda and we’re also glad you kept the backer-card!
P.S. Support your local farm (organic when possible.) It makes a difference and, frankly, food tests best when fresh!
