Sitting in my car at the gas station. Right next to the pumps with my driver's side door open. All ready to pump but one little problem exists. I forgot my debit card. No cash either (what is cash?).
I am in a big hurry. Meeting some possible clients across town, although my town is only 5 miles wide, in less than 15 minutes. Tank close to empty. Darn!
I wonder aloud. Why do we not have some type of gas entitlement program? It is not really my fault that my tank is on E. Come on now, with the price of gas, and the MPG of my older sports car, I should not really be held responsible for buying gas every stinking time my tanks gets low. Add to that the fact that I am sincerely trying to add to my communities economy by brokering a big deal here.
What if I was on my way to the hospital in a life and death situation? What if I was an illegal immigrant who could not pass the E-verify stuff, and thus could make no money? What if I was unemployed and on the way to job interview? What if I was on my way to be the best man (?) in a transgender wedding? What if I was on my way to a big protest?
Lifetime politicians who pander to entitlement junkies, listen up!
