its actually kinda sad that this is what the world in general has come to.

you are right ridge..........just pay for the damn gas........as you have used it to move or whatever you were doing!!! some people should stand back and think for a minute and take a friggin reality check!!! its the way it is, aint gonna change no time soon, so deal with it in the correct manner.....which in this case........put gas back in the tank.......not no damn water!!

I agree! I mentioned to ya, that here in Phoenix there was another Home invasion. This time it was 4 to 6 Armed Mexican Nationals wearing Body armor and carrying/useing semi auto rifles. The man found inside his house was shot 30 times. He was dead. 3 of the "suspects" were caught. One admitted to being Mexican Military, and said that they were going to "take back" their country! I DARE them to try and take it from ME! *climbing off soap box looking for keys to "Mad Max" car*
