Question:

What happens if you fill your car up with gas using the pay-inside option, and then your card doesn't work? Or you don't have the cash you thought you did? And the gas is already in your car? Do you have to wash out the hot dog machine? Do they take your license plate number and put it on your tab? I ask not because of personal experience, but because it occurred to me today that I am 25 years old and have no idea what would happen in that situation. Enlighten me.

You would arrested and they would impound your baby, as she is the only thing of any worth you own.

Full tank? No money? Just make off like a bandit--I think at this point the oil companies owe us each a freebie.

.. Quite honestly, in my situation, I would start balling in front of the gas lady/man and tell them my hormones were wacked up, that i'm blonde, and forgetful because this fetus inside is sucking up all my memory.... I think that'd get me off the hook. But you? You're pretty auburn color and non preggo. You might just have to offer community service- the hot dog machine could certainly use a clean up job i've noticed. BTW- do you have a baby nephew yet?? Is he a blonde asian??

Small gas stations in respectful communities take your ID #, address, telephone as an IOU. I imagine here in Newark they hold a gun on you till the police arrive.

Am I seriously only one day older than you? (as in, I was born 6/3/83) No wonder I like you so much--we are fellow geminis!

Danielle said...

or, did I totally misread your blog and now I'm utterly disappointed that you just used your age of 1/4 century to make a point about how little we know in the world, and your birthday was actually some time in the past and I just haven't been paying attention?

Most gas-stations have ATM machines inside... but, I like the tab idea, I would have gas tabs all over salt lake county. Also- on a side note, just until recently I thought that the 'pay inside' sticker meant that you HAD to pay inside, even if you were using a credit card... obviously, you don't.

Kiersten: NOOO! NOT WITHOUT MY DAUGHTER!

Mar: amen.

ChrisandKate: Crying is not the answer.

Sam: Don't shoot!

Danielle: Funny mix up. I'm a Libra. can we still be friends?

Jay: If your card didn't work, how would an ATM help? And the pay inside thing reminds me of my friend Laura who thought that "carry out" pizza was when they carry it out to your house.

Nikki said...

Hmm... I had this happen to me once. I was a lot younger than 25 at the time and called for back up from a friend.

Jay and Jess said...

...hmmm... thats true, the ATM wouldn't work. I'd just drive off and hope for the best.
