"I have a guy for that..."
Another (now deleted or moved off to greenville) thread got me thinking about personal networking. All the people you know well, and sort of know, or have met enough times that you can consider them one of your "guys" (and yes, women can be "guys" in this instance). Those people who with a phone call or two can get you anything. Might find you that hard to find thing at retail, or that impossible to find thing for just a favor.
I need a car part cheap? Yep, I got a guy for that.
I need a tractor and a plow? Yep, got a guy for that.
Need 200 gallons of ice cream at wholesale cost, a refrigerated truck to haul it, and a concession stand from which to sell it? One phone call.
Oddly enough an anvil (or equivalent chunk of hardened metal) took me calls to 3 guys before I found it. Luckily I have like 5 scrap metal guys.
Need discrete police involvement? Yep, let me call my cousin.
Need something illicit (and not proper subject matter for discussion here of course)? Yep, I got a guy for that, if I need it (and I don't).
I of course am a "guy" to quite a few people for an assortment of subjects.
And of course there's the multi level guy chain, where I have a guy, who calls a guy, who has another guy. That's where the truly crazy deals can be made.

Yeah.. I have a guy.
[Deleted because I put a bit too much info]
He's the man.
ie: for my Eagle Scout stuff, many of the letters I received from the feds was hand written O_o and the other scouts who got letters from the same people got form letters.
annnnndd some of the "family" in chicago wants to recruit me as a mason through him.

Yep, I am one of the guys for some...
I have the "guy" network for all the rest.

I wish that I had a guy for the tumble polishing media I wanted to finish aluminium parts. it took me two weeks to find a source that would sell small quantities like I wanted. Now that I know where to get it, I have become that guy.
If you need rattan poles, I have a guy for that.
If you need a set of 12th century armour, I have a guy for that.
If you need to replace a broken touchscreen on a smart phone, I'm that guy.
If you need parts for an Italian sports car, I have a guy for that (even though I don't have the car any longer).
If you need to locate a deadbeat that owes you money, I have a guy for that.
It's good to have a list of guys.
