It sucks, but I'd like to point out that the guy is just doing his job. A
good percentage of scrappers are more than willing to work with Hobbyists,
especially if said hobbyists are willing to pay more than the scrap value
for an item. If you want to blame anyone, blame the people that send the
stuff to the scrappers, not the scrappers.
