Over the past few months I’ve been getting frustrated with the amount of direct spamming coming through on Skype chat. The latest was a guy in China trying to sell me slabs of marble – ha ha… What a hard sell that must be! Trying to convince people around the world at random to buy slabs of marble which probably weigh a ton and cost fortunes to ship. I mean seriously… what are the odds that a random spam approach will net a person that actually would consider purchasing a slab of marble sight unseen from China! Crazy!

Anyway, for a laugh I told him I wanted to SEE the range and after some haggling I convinced him to send me a sample so I could CONSIDER buying a slab for my kitchen bench…

Anyway – he actually sent it! My trophy is in the pic below! So I now have a solid marble coffee coaster! And I’m stoked I finally got one over on a spammer! I reckon we should all try to get free samples and see who can get the best item…
