Soon I will have a picture of this image that made me laugh yesterday.
I was filling up my American made SUV (which is my cross to bear) last night with $4.09 gas and looked at the screen on the pump.
Usually on this screen you see one word that says "FUELING".
Not yesterday, instead the marketing whiz's at Royal Dutch Shell decided to push patriotism.
Shell's screen had the following message on it:
"GOD BLESS AMERICA"
My research shows me that Shell had global profits of $27.31 Billion last year, the screen should say, "Thank You America".
I'm not trying to be anti-capitalist, but I can do without being patronized when being screwed me with my pants when it comes to cost. Seriously, when filling up your vehicle with gas,,, is patriotism one of your feelings.
I should have checked to see if I could have bought a flag lapel pin inside the gas station.
