Are These Y2K Barrels?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Went to the local fuel co. today to get a 55 gal barrel of K1 and a 55 gal barrel of Diesel.
While filling the barrels the attendant asked "Are these Y2K barrels?"
Since he didn't have my address I said "Yes they are."
He then related that they had been doing a booming business in barrels, fuel tanks, and had filled more 5 gal Wal-Mart containers of kero than he could shake a stick at.
Maybe the herd is starting to move.

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but he could have noted your tag number. In a lot of states you can take that number to the DMV and purchase the name and addy associated with it. The same with the post office. That makes me madder than heck, but can't do much about it except throw'em off guard. Our titles have our PO box on'em and the addy for the po box is an apartment we no longer inhabit.

Yes, he could have but he was real busy as I wasn't the only customer.
I estimated the risk befor answering.
Yes it makes me mad that that info is so readily available.
