I help whenever the chance arises. Yesterday was a good chance. One
woman was looking at lamps in WalMart and I was looking at shades. I
said I guess I was just going to have to bring in my lamp and let it
try on a few shades to decide which one I wanted. She said she was
looking for a 3-way lamp, but it looked like they didn’t have
any. Then she told me that the one she kept by her chair had gone
out, and it was not the bulb. I asked if she had considered
replacing the socket. No, she didn’t realize a person could do
that. We went to the electrical department and I showed her what she
needed and explained how to change the socket and plug on her
lamp. I not only saved her at least $20, this kept a “broke” lamp
from going in the landfill, and allowed her to keep her pair of lamps
in the room matching.
