Duck and cover.

I was out the other day and gas was still $1.83 a gallon along the interstate.

Hell, I couldn't pass that up even though I had a half tank. I pulled up to the pump and got out, ready to open the gas cover. I heard the rush of water flowing...but it wasn't water.

The next island over... gas was overflowing out of a Jeep Cherokee because the pump didn't shut off. I ran over and turned off the gas. The driver was inside her Jeep on the phone. I knocked on her window and told her I turned off the pump.

So here I am standing in a puddle of gas. The Jeep's engine is running, she is still on her cell phone, and she is entering and leaving her vehicle. This is where the old "Duck and Cover" images of the 50s and early 60s came into my head.

Not to mention she left the pump unattended. I don't care if someone is trying for a Darwin Award, just as long as they don't endanger others. some people don't have a clue.

I was surprised the lady had no clue she could possibly blow the place off the map. She was wanting the cashier to reimburse her for the spilled gas. I just topped off and got the heck out of there.
