kinda disappointed

Why is everyone so negative and just..... I don't know how to describe it... just seems there's no interest in positive fun and everyone is either unapproachable or depressed or insecure or spiteful lately.

I log on like every other day and there's little value lately.

I think what is most disappointing is how people who have changed over the years and who are so unwelcoming to others. As if its a privilege to be spoken to.

I'm kinda missin the good times. Whats going on? Why did some of you flip by replacing humble fun with constant bickering and deliberate ridicule?

I vow not to give up my winter time six pack for summer time 12 packs.

I do agree, however. When I joined back in September of 2008 I had a lot of fun streaming through threads. Maybe this is why I kinda' stopped logging on for quite a while. I pretty much get on to keep up with GO events/rides because the ladies are still just as much fun as ever!

Stay out of the hole.

But seriously your right and I think I and maybe others are showing some sings of the tuff times.

Maybe we have lost some touch with what matters and put to much value in the lack of paychecks and devalued homes?

Every time I go to that place I think about what your saying.Although I'm much better at being miserable than most! I to maybe growing tired of it.

Sorry if I've been a bummer.But I'm not your happy go lucky type of guy anyway.

Work hard and die doing it.Love me or hate me you'll respect my hard nose work ethic.

And I can appreciate you if your an upstanding person with enough patients to understand me.

I do have love in my life and will start thinking more about that.I don't have to kick everyone's ass .

Love Gus

IN all seriousness, I think you've nailed it. People tend to have alot less patience for things when all that is weighing on their mind.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

I think some of the people who join, just come off as "know it all's" . They need to be a little more humble . Overall ,it will blow over when the moons re-align.

Although it is possible that because someone joins today, that they weren't born yesterday.
