First off I doubt that he payed thousands of dollars for it.
They can be purchased for a few hundred dollars, and his is not exactly 'top of the line.'
However that is not the point, I don't care how much he payed.
The reason I am concerned is because I'm sure he's not the only ignorant person to waste gas over one inch of snow. I have no problem listening to
it, that doesn't bother me.
As for it being a matter of minding my own business maybe you're right. Maybe if one of my neighbors beats his wife I should mind my own business.
Maybe the U.S. and Russia should have minded their own business when the Nazi's were slaughtering millions of jews, afterall Hitler just wanted to
'get his money's worth' out of those gas chambers.
I understand the ridiculous nature of comparing my snowblowing neighbor to hitler, but the point is that if people don't take personal responsibility
for their wasteful actions we're all going to be royally screwed soon.
Yep it's only a little gas each time he does it, but how many times will he do it, and how many other people will do it?
I'll just sit back and mind my own business, and when civilization crumbles because theres no gas left, or when your children can't go outside to
play without a gas mask, I'll be waiting to say 'told you so.'
As for you're statement about who cares about SUV's, we should all care, and I assure you future generations will care.
They are wasteful abominations that require more gas to start than my hybrid does to take me across town, but you're right I should just worry about
me and let him worry about him. It's not like I live on the same planet, or breathe the same air, or require the same fuel source that he's wasting,
and that theres a limited ammount of. Let's all just mind our own business while the planet goes down the crapper, it's the right thing to do.
Seriously, do you even think before you type?
