Wow, I Feel Smart

This morning my car didn't start right with my car starter. I tried it again and it the engine tried to turn over about 4 times and still didn't work. I ended up trying the old fashioned way (with the key) and it took a few attempts before it worked. I think it was because my gas was low and it was 15 degrees. 

I headed to the first gas station. I got out of my car to pump the gas and couldn't get the nozzle to go into my tank. I was frustrated and assumed it was frozen shut. The cap came off just fine but there's a little door-like closure on the actual tank that I couldn't seem to get past. 

I became so frustrated I asked these two older guys at the pump next to me. They came over and immediately solved the problem. Yeah, I was trying to put diesel gas into my tank. It wasn't frozen, the nozzle was too large to protect people from doing this. 

 W wanted to tell his co-workers but I was too embarrassed. Im hoping I was just thrown off because my car didn't want to start and this won't be a repeat. TGIF!


  1. I love it! At least your car didn't die as you pulled into the gas station and your car was to far away from the pump. Yeah so done that! LOL
