One of Those Days
Thankfully my MIL goes to Mass in the morning as well so she was able to take me to the gas station where I could buy a 2 gallon gas can for $11 to fill with $7 worth of gas. I was a little excited to have my very own cute gas can and it was going to stay in my car... just in case. Of course it leaked the entire way back to my car. Then we couldn't for the life of us figure out how to get the gas out of this cute little can which was losing its cuteness quickly. When all else fails read the directions. Do you know, you have to pop the middle out of the cap, don't they have machines to do that these days? Then insert the tube. But the gas would not come out. When all else fails read the directions..... again. However it would be impossible to explain the maneuvering it took. We get the thing in and eventually push hard enough at a very awkward angle and it starts to fill. Then it stops filling (though it was still 1/2 full... (even if it was a 1/2 empty kind of day). I kid you not that we could not get this thing out of the gas-filling hole. My suggestion was to just leave it there, drive off and it would probably fall off somewhere. I am quite sure this was invented by a man with women in mind. I bet to this very day he is still laughing his fool head off.
The day didn't get much better as it wore on. But this is plenty long and it was only 7:35.
