Last night something cool happened. I was going to the gas station and then the grocery store. I was a bit shocked at the gas price at first:
“$1.41 for regular?!”
Then I remembered, this weekend is qualifications for the Indy 500, so everyone's jacking up their prices, as normal. Ah well. So I drive up and start pumping gas. It stops pumping at about 8 gallons, which is odd because it's a ten gallon tank and nearly empty. I tried to start pumping again, but got nothing. Hmm, odd.
“Oh well,” I figure, “it was too expensive anyway, I'll get more when it's cheaper.”
So I go in to pay for the gas, and the lady asked how much I had. I told her $12.00 (which it was). She was like, “Oh, you want $12?” to which I replied, “Uh.. no, I pumped $12” She said she couldn't get it to pull up anything on my pump. “Guess you got some free gas,” she said. Then I realized that someone had probably prepaid and forgotten to pump the gas. That would explain why it cutoff exactly at $12 and wouldn't let me pump anymore. So yeah, I got some free gas. That was a nice little blessing. :-]
