Not exactly the right context, but the saying for this could be similar to the old, �Fool me once ...�
The South Fulton Fire Department made national news last year after they refused to put out a house fire due to an unpaid fire subscription fee, and it appears that policy has not changed.
Homeowner Vicky Bell watched her home burn to the ground on Monday while firefighters stood behind her looking on, according to WPSD-TV.
. . .
Bell admitted that she was aware of the fee, but never thought it would happen to them.
A little too much of human nature there, I suppose, but after the first time, you�d think people might be a bit more careful about paying up.
Then again, there appears to be a whole subset of people who support policies that can only make sense if in fact they believe that they will never find themselves in need of the services they vote to cut or severely restrict. Sure, Newt and Mitt aren�t ever going to need food stamps or unemployment benefits, but a lot of the people that vote for their party aren�t necessarily going to be so lucky. By the time they get to �never thought it would happen to them�, it�s usually too late.
