I agree , but get on road and see how many people pass you when you are at speed limit .

Most people think hooray for me and to hell with everyone else .

I'm not sure that's at all a fair comparison, but I certainly will acknowledge that the behavior is far from rare (witness the post I was responding to).  Trouble is, it simply ruins it for everyone else as this abuse inevitably leads retailers to reduce their warranty coverage or at a minimum take some of the slack out of it.  The more people that do this, the quicker Costco will decide that there's no payback in offering such a generous policy and we all pay the price for that (whether we chose to abuse the warranty or not).

I frankly find such a lack of basic ethics to be a real shame and unfortunately all too common.  I guess I don't put this in the same category as traveling a few MPH/KPH over the speed limit.  But your last comment about many people being largely self-centered and not caring about the impact of such behavior is hard to dispute.
