Today I was doing errands. Saw that gas was a bit cheaper at a Co-op station. I decided to top up my tank! I drove up to the nearest pump, in behind a vacant truck. I expected the owner was paying for gas or buying lottery tickets. I sat patiently waiting, because that's what I do!...I'm pretty darn patient! Meanwhile a man standing three pumps away was smirking at me. He had that, "what's that dumb chick waiting for", kind of smirk on his face. He kept staring as though I had my skirt tucked into my underwear, which wasn't possible because I was sitting in my car....Okay....maybe that was possible, but he couldn't see it. Anyway, he kept smirking. I felt uneasy, a bit foolish, but didn't know why.I could have switched to a vacant pump on the other side. Instead I kept waiting,
maybe a little too long. No one returned to the truck. Pump dude continued laughing at me. Still shaking his head in contempt. Obviously I was doing something wrong. He definitely thought I was a stupid, heck if I knew why! I considered passing on the gas, not passing gas, after all I still had three quarters of a tank of fuel. But I wanted the cheap gas, and a touch-less car wash to get the winter salt off my car. It was now evident the truck driver wasn't coming back. I looked in my rear view mirror preparing to back up. As I swung my head around, there it was. A city tow truck. Rear view lights butted up to my passenger door. I had blocked him in. I felt pretty sheepish. There was nowhere for him to go until I moved! Pumper dude was still shaking his head, now blatantly laughing at me. Duh.....Fat chick finally got it!! Thankfully I had sunglasses on to hide my shame! I quickly pulled out and around to another pump, parallel to him. He pulled out and left, thank goodness. I'm sure I created some evening fodder, for pump dude and the trapped tow truck driver!
I imagine I swooped in behind the vacant truck just as the tow truck was planning to perform a tow! Oops!!!
