Have you ever gone to a Walmart or similar place where you see a cross section of America? Did you ever wonder, why some of these people are allowed to reproduce?
Think about it. After the Military Draft ended there was no way to end certain gene pools....
When I was in the service 1966 -1968, we used to bet on how long some of these idiots would last in combat. Some of them did not have much of a chance. Hence the END of a gene pool.
Now these people just continue to breed. Three, four, five kids... and they have kids.... and they have kids.
NO ONE has manners anymore. They are not taught at home OR in school. You expect them to say thank you? Dream on.
We used to offer free advise and information on our web site. We get over 150 hits a day. Most people asked questions and we would not even get a Thank you.
So now we ask for a small $10 donation to out local Animal Shelter for information or pump ID or appraisal.https://www.oldgaspumpguys.com/gas-pump-values--questions.html
Cut questions by 50% or more. Only 10% of those people will make a donation.
Now they all go on Facebook and ask. i love it when I see, "I just bought this pump. How much is it worth?"
You just have to learn to live with the world the way it is. It will not get better, only worse.
