So Zman and I are on our way home tonight from piano lessons and I am on E...I mean Empty...the gasoline light is on and I have no idea how many miles I get til empty. I don't want to chance it but I hate to stop especially if I am travelling a new way and in the dark for that matter. Sometimes you just wanna get home but I didn't want to be stranded on the highway and call AAA or Hubby; besides Zman would have freaked out...He was already back seat driving "mom you sure you know where your going?" no Zman I don't ...you wanna try it? (JK I didn't say that)
I stop, get out of the car and put my card in the machine at the pump and as soon as I lift the pump out of the holster...BOOM...and gas flies out...my first instinct was the pump was exploding and I fall out of my shoes (because I don't have the straps on...listen they were 8 hour shoes and it was well beyond 8 hours)...I look on the other side and some stupid idiot driving a Mercedes for that matter decided...well I guess he wanted to bring the pump home because he started to drive away and it broke off the machine.
The person behind me was like WTF and I looked over and the guy got out of the car and was like "what happened...did it break". You stupid idiot what do you think happened...so he begins to pick up the pieces that broke off and walks in inside I assume to tell the attendant.
But really did he think the pump would take itself out of his gasoline tank and put itself back into the holster? Did he go inside while the gas was pumping itself and just got into the car to drive off.
I don't know but that just proves no matter how much money you have or what car you drive you may still be day late and a dollar short upstairs if you know what I mean.
I get back in the car and Zman was like "what was that?" "Did he just drive off with the pump?" Yes he did...so can I go this way? Yeah I can..."mom do you know where you are?" Now I'm frazzled and I call my hubby and tell him (because I can't wait I thought I was about to blow up) and he listens and then says "ok is that it; I'm on the other line".
