Some Days I Shouldn't Try to Drive

Yesterday, I noticed that I was trying to wean the car. Since they don't tend to want to go without gas, and I tend not to want to be stranded, I pulled into a gas station -- and pulled up to the wrong side of the car. So I pulled around and was going to back into another spot, when someone drove behind me and took it. So I pulled around and neatly backed into another spot -- only to get out and realize I was still parked with the gas tank on the wrong side.

I decided my best bet was a hurried exit from that gas station. I turned towards home -- and then realized all the gas stations were the other direction. I went to another -- where gas was several cents cheaper than place I'd gone to first. I pulled in on the correct side, opened the gas tank door, got out and realized my purse was inside the door that was now blocked by the open gas tank door. Eventually I did manage to fill the tank. At almost $40, I think I should just stay home from now on though.


Hmm... in context with the surrounding posts, this does make one wonder!

You make such sense to me. One time I pulled into a pump a guy'd already paid for (how was I to know?) and I got so flustered when he yelled at me, that I just left. I just hate that.
