Default If you could donate a $1

So I got to thinking today while at work. . . I know dangerous thing to do.

But we're a community and communities typically help each other.

What if 400 people were willing to donate $1 to my repair fund? Then I could buy my parts at the local junkyard and get my truck back in a decent working order especially since I"m probably going to get rid of a vehicle.

So I'll start this out with a poll

Yeah right. We're a community of helping eachother. Not a community of giving you free money so you have what you want without working for it like everyone else. What you are asking for is not a donation or "helping you out". Donations are for people who have a special situation or unusual need. Not people who want something for free without working for it. That already has a name, its called welfare.

Add an option to your poll called "blow it out your ass". I'll check that box.

Or he could just use one of the other two vehicles he has and not worry about truck mods until he can afford it, like everyone else does....
