Lucky me!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I got home from work yesterday and UPS had left a package inside my gate. It was from John Grado and was the exact shape of boxed headphones. Funny thing is I hadn't ordered anything from Grado and thought it odd that it was from John Grado and not Grado Labs, Inc. The package had my address on it but not my name. I asked the guy who lives above me if he recognized the name and he told me the guy teaches at Julliard and is a musician of some note, and he lived in the area. It crossed my mind that these might be some kind of custom-tweaked PS 1000s and it would be great to have a free pair, but I couldn't keep someone else's Grados. I went over and rang his bell but no one answered, so I called Grado. Long story short, the guy got his package and Grado is sending me a complimentary set. Hooray!

Wow, that's pretty nuts. Learn a lesson from this, kids; it pays to be honest sometimes.

Now this is how these situations should work, very good on you! I am glad you didn't immediately start disassembling the headphones and creating a for sale thread for them, like as happened in a certain other thread by a different poster, about a similar mishap in shipped headphones...

Can you perhaps PM me the name of the guy it was meant to be sent to? I don't mean to sound like a stalker, it's just that I met a few professors at Juilliard a month or two ago and would be interested to know if he was among them.

No idea what model. He just said, "I'd like to send you some headphones." I'm shocked that they offered me anything really.

 

Sorry ssrock, I understand why people would want to know who it is but I'd probably not want people knowing what mail I had delivered to my house so I don't want to give out his name. It felt kinda strange to post anything about it at all. Hope you understand.

This is great to hear.  Nice that they are sending you a free pair of phones for doing the right thing -- but you had already done the right thing for the right reason, not for reward.  Maybe there is hope...

This is an excellent story and renews my faith in people.  Good job. 

Who did you speak to? Was it a customer service person or the man himself? Sr or Jr

 

You should link this thread over in the Customer Service Good Bad Ugly thread.

 

I don't know what's up lately here, I had 3 things left outside my door for hours(?) today and also one yesterday, irreplaceable one, and the other two only at great difficulty.  Usually get a notice to go hit up the post office. Maybe they are sick of writing cards for me. That's a bad sign.

 

Once again nice work. Just think if they were yours.

 

Whatever happened to that thread where the guy couldn't leave well enough alone. I seem to recall it got locked but was there any word on the conclusion?

No problem. *reconfigures stalking plan*
