One of the things I have watched over the years is

the growth of a lack of consideration for people.

Neighbor Bob loaned out his pickup for an hour a couple of months ago and whe he got it back there was a spot on the inside of the windshield where the borrower had taken a paper towel and wiped a hole in the cigarette smoke film.

Why didn't he just squirt a little Windex on it and clean the whole inside of the windshield? It would have only taken a minute.

Truth is, Bob had loaned out a machine to someone for no charge whatsoever. The borrower wanted to pick up a local garage sale purchase and probably could have stuffed it into their sedan or tied it to the roof or something.

By borrowing Bobs pickup, he had just had their life made considerably easier.

Instead of taking a small minute of time to wipe the inside of the windshield, they just took the lazy way out.

Today the same person asked to borrow it again today, and guess what?

Bob said 'no'.

I can't say as I blame him at all.
