.there is the difference between us and them ..we do the work ourselves, the labor,the pain, the sweat the joy...if we don't know how to do it, we rely on ourselves to learn as opposed to whipping out a poser check book..... you can't buy respect
I remember the high school days where daddy would buy the car for (insert name here) and claim to have done the work. It would be obvious they knew nothing.
Had more fun than could be bought when everyone was standing around looking at the motor - and I would reach down and pop all the plug wires off the distributor. You could see the horror on their face...
My (being a jerk) answer when they would ask "why". My stock answer was "If you did all this work, it shouldn't take but a minute for you to put those wires back". It never failed... "I will pay you to put it back" were the first words out of their mouth.
Like your mention of the Poser Checkbook!
Made me laugh.
