I filled my minivan with gas this morning. I thought you might like to know how that went………
9:02: Pulled up toward the pump – price per gallon was $3.589.
9:02: Let a little old lady cross in front of me first – ppg now $3.599. Last time I’ll be a damn Good Samaritan!
9:03: Got up to the pump. Took a sip of my coffee first – price per gallon now $3.619. Damn caffeine habit!
9:04: Forgot where the latch for the gas cap release was. That cost me – ppg now $3.649. Damn senior moments!
9:05: Picked my blend and inserted my card, but not fast enough – ppg now $3.709. Damn arthritis!
9:06: Finally got to pumping. By two gallons in, the ppg was at $3.729. Damn slow pumps!
9:10: Still only 9 gallons pumped. Guy at pump next to me went in to use restroom while the gas pumped. Thought of using his pump on my car but didn’t – ppg now $3.76. Damn conscience!
9:14: Nearing the end of the ordeal at 16 ½ gallons – ppg now hovering around $3.80. It’s about damn time!
9:15: Said a prayer of thanks that I wasn’t the guy in the Chevy Suburban.
9:16: Moved car away from pump, locked it.
9:17: Walked home. It felt damned good.
