The Best Me I Can Be
I don't agree with your reasoning but I have much respect for your approach here. Your people skills are way better than mine.Ha that's a great question actually. We use liters as a measurement for the hydration bladders because that's the measurement the entire industry uses. I've been using the hydration bladders/reservoirs many years, since they were introduced to our military and the outdoors industry and liters is how it's always been. We always try to remind folks that our hydration bladder is "just under a gallon". You're right about us not being a metric nation...we've become a mix of both. Pop comes in liter bottles, while milk is in a gallon. On our cars and bikes we have to worry if the part is metric or standard. You're right Joe it can be a pain to figure out.
I'm mostly hurt that autoworker didn't like my pun. I suspect he didn't catch it either.
