So had made Honda service appointment for 11:30 today. Just oil change, got out in no time. Just got a phone call from Honda. "Shall we cancel or reschedule your appointment?" *thought bubble: WHAT?* I said something to buy time ... looked at phone ... 604 area code. I had booked the appointment in British Columbia!

I requested information on old legacy equipment from a company that doesn't own the brand but that has experience with it (found absolutely nothing online). They won't be making a sale -- I was clear about that upfront -- yet this gentleman went through great length to discuss it and supply me with everything they have on file to help.
