Definitely a very odd message indeed, seemingly playing on poverty and religion to acquire something for cheap, bit cheeky if you ask me!!

It would be downright cruel to deprive a POOR parson of a Western Electric catalogue.  Do you want for him and his children to have to beg in the streets for apparatus catalogues?  Where is the compassion? ;)

I've dealt with that guy many times.  Always trying to beat me down on my price.  After trying to beat me down on many items I finally sold him one at his price - as soon as he got it he started complaining about the phone.  He is now blocked.
