Overheard in PETsMART last night:
Woman: Did you buy the equipment?
Woman: But it cost like $450. You paid for it?
Man: I didn’t pay for it; the U.S. government paid for it.
Hey, guy, guess what? You did pay for it. So did I, which is not cool. You may think that passing it onto the government is a convenient way to “avoid” the burden yourself, but if you haven’t noticed, there’s a rather ginormous national debt that’s going nowhere but up. That debt didn’t just appear because the U.S. government bought one too many bullets 75 years ago. So, on behalf of everyone who will never get to use your machine, allow me to tell you to stop being a leech.
P.S. You owe me $0.0000018. I accept PayPal. Thank you.
