Apparently a lot, or at least more then I have!
As I was heading home from the gym chatting on my phone the dreaded BEEEP sounded. I hate that sounds, it means that I am stuck having to fill up my gas... I so hate that job.
I pulled into the gas station, picked a pump, turned off the car, and as I was going to swipe my card I notice the GIANT BRIGHT RED bag over the pump that reads Out of Service... Really? How did I miss that one.
So I popped back in and went around to another pump, turned off the car, swiped my card, and went to open the gas tank. Only it wasn't there! I pulled up on the wrong side! How dumb can I be?! It took at least 5 minutes for me to figure out how to cancel my transaction. Somehow I missed the big ole CANCEL button! As I hopped back in yet again, Anthony exclaims "Moooom! What are you doing?!?!" No clue son, no clue!
I restarted my car for a THIRD time and headed to a working pump and parked on the right side. I swiped my card, put the nozzle in, put the holder down clicker thing in place and decided to empty out the garbage dump that has become my floor boards and then I heard the tell tale sign... CLICK! Ugh, just as I opened the door, the pump unclicked. Completely annoyed at this point I walked back around my truck and restarted the pump. I walk 3 steps and... Click! WTF, by this point I am VOWING TO NEVER VISIT THIS GAS STATION AGAIN! I reclick the thing and FINALLY, I am able to empty the trash. $75.00 and quite a bit of annoyance later my tank was full!
It times like this when I miss New Jersey and the land of Full Service! My peeps know what's up!
