I'm a good friend (and make bad decisions)

So many of you saw the thread I made last week about my buddy getting a small egg, which thanks to feedback here he did buy. I have another buddy who has also been thinking about one. So today I was at local butcher and saw a small. Asked about it and was told an employee won it but had one so was selling. $409, never used, includes nest. New at dealer that's $670 here. So I walked out but was thinking. Told my buddy I was thinking about buying it and he asked me if the guy would take $350. Called owner, he said yes to $350. New small w/ nest for $350! But my buddy wanted it so instead of adding a 2nd egg to my LBGE I picked up for my friend. He lives out of state so I bought and he is transferring $ back to my bank and I'll keep in garage until I see him in Feb. see how nice I am? And I got two new eggheads for the world.
Boom

    That's what I'd do.  (sadly) put the needs for the many over the needs of the few, or the one. (enter stage left charcoal briquette)

    @nolaegghead... put the needs for the many over the needs of the few...communist? Keep the small and tell your buddy, "it sucks to be you".

    I was actually quoting Spock in The Wrath of Khan before he sacrifices himself in order to save the many, and afterwards he turns into a charcoal briquette.   I'm no stinkin' pinko commie.  We're all socialist to a certain degree, if not, we're complete anarchists.
