Default Can you believe this?

While filling up the boat today. An older man came up to me at the pump and said, It's people like you that drive up prices of fuel and don't conserve America's resources". I said are you kidding me? I'm not making a killing on the hight price of gas right now. I'm 50 so this guy had to be around 70. I don't even have a large boat. Is there others out there that have that mentality about boaters or others that have hobbies that require gas?

Yes. and the whole 75 gallons that put in the boat will cause a shortage. After he said his piece, he just walked away.

You should have said "It is people like you that raise my taxes and ins, both medical and liability, because you are an old worthless burden on society. All you do is take from the system and get sick and use Medicare. You drive too slow which carbons up your engine and gets bad gas mileage and all you do all day is fight change and progress with your AARP lobbyists and old decrepit friends." Then I would have kicked him too.

I'm going to get a bumper sticker that says: " I'm burning my unborn children's gas".... Since I never had any children.... I feel entitled to burn the fuel of 3.3 people... so there....
