I mean, we need to find a way to not have folks like the one I saw today.
I’m filling two gas cans at the gas station…dude (not a chic) about 30 years old drives in (at least, I think it was a dude, not a woman, but these days, one never knows) and pulls up to a pump. Only to find out that the filler is on the other side of the car
He looks sheepishly at me and the other guy, say “new car, heh” and gets back in and pulls around to the other side of the pups….WITH THE FILLER STILL ON THE WRONG SIDE. The car is , of course, facing 180 degrees from the first direction and he is, of course, on the other side of the pump… but he cannot comprehend that the filler is still not on his side of the car.
He gets out, looks, looks at us, tries to pull the hose over the back of the car (would have worked if he’d have pulled ahead about 3 feet) and gets back into the car. Pulls up to the other line of pumps….ON THE WRONG SIDE.
He looks, gets back into the car, and leaves the station.
I laughed, but I felt a bit sad too. He’s likely gonna mate with some girl and produce children. And that frightens me.
