Yesterday I pulled into a fuel station to fill up the truck with petrol and to fill two twenty litre fuel containers with diesel. Filled the truck and one of the containers and was half way through filling the second container when the station attendant turned up.
She said “I’ll have to ask you to stop filling that container”.
I said “Why, what’s the problem?”
She said “Its company policy that any containers must be placed on the ground to avoid spark potential”.
By this time the container was 75% full. Cars were lined up waiting to be filled. I like filling the containers in the back of the truck as it saves me lifting them in when they’re full. The containers are approved for fuel transport, they’re plastic and they were sitting on a rubber mat. I was pumping diesel not petrol. A minute more and the container would have been filled and I would have been on my way.
But no, this snot nosed little Marxist/ Prog/ Millenial nitwit wants me to stop filling, lift the container from the truck, fill it the remaining 25% and then replace it in the truck.
I wanted to tell this little know-nothing what I truly thought of her and her regulations. I left it though by remarking calmly that I had been filling containers with diesel on the back of trucks for years, that there was no difference to filling the containers and filling any vehicle through the filler cap, and that she had caused me inconvenience, and held up a score of other customers for no real reason.
She said “I just want to make sure I go home safe tonight”.
I silently reflected upon the fact that if it weren’t for pioneering risk takers who did for so many years fill diesel tanks on the back of trucks, she may not be able today to afford a home.
Common sense is today cast aside for rigid sheep like adherence to impractical regulations written and administered by low intellect poorly educated products of our progressive education system. They don’t know how the countries they live in today were built, they don’t know who built them, and worst of all they don’t give a damn anyway.
Breaking our economies with over the top concerns for safety that make most projects completely uneconomic. Everywhere companies are shutting down because they cannot produce at an economic cost and these dimwitted self absorbed products of a fouled education system are behind it all.
Even if there was some sense in the regulation regarding filling containers on the ground, for the attendant to insist upon compliance at the late stage she did, with so many customers queued, with only 5 litres remaining to be pumped, demonstrates so clearly these people have no idea of the consequences of their actions and again, they don’t care anyway.
The sensible thing would have been to inform me of the regulations and ask that next time I fill the containers on the ground. But no.
We have raised a generation of idiots. Here’s the real point of all of this. These same idiots are about to elect Bernie Sanders as POTUS. I will go out on a limb here and predict this is the most likely outcome of the 2016 US elections.
Why do I think this?
Because we who are not part of this spectrum of ignorance have no idea how wide ranging and deep it is. We do not appreciate the tremendous damage being done by a make believe education system. Millenials are as stupid as they come, but worse, there are millions of them out there about to vote.
They will elect Bernie Sanders, because that my friends, is what they have been educated to do. And Bernie Sanders as US president will destroy that country, and when the US goes down, the whole West goes down.
Millenials like my little authoritarian white bait fuel station forecourt supervisor are going to kill the West.
