Aren't most pet dogs vaccinated for rabies today - or they are supposed to be?
Yep...and therin lies the rub.
Aren't people driving down the road supposed to be licensed? Aren't they supposed to be sober? Aren't they supposed to be insured? Aren't they supposed to be in the country legally? Aren't they supposed to stop after causing an accident?
The answer to all of the above is actually YES.
However, with increasing regularity, the end result is NO.
Bottom line is:
Assume nothing, because we all know where assumptions get us.
One more thought:
It's not the odds
, it's the stakes
