I was pumping gas the other day and had left the nozzle on automatic. After it had clicked off I began my usual battle with the pump dispenser to get the dollar amount just perfect.
Here are my preferred choices:
1. I like the amount to be a nice round number. When filling up the Mustang these days, that amount is $50.00.
2. I like the total to end in a zero.
3. I can handle it if it stops on a five.
When gas is as high as it is, it is nearly impossible to get the pump to stop on a zero or five. It always goes past to 01 or 06 and I end up with $47.46 or $48.01. Before you know it, I've put an additional two or three bucks in the car because I can't get the blasted thing to stop.
My mom thinks it's hysterical when she sees me doing this. Why don't you just let it stop wherever, she says, or better yet, pay with cash and they do the stopping for you!
So, is it just me? Zero, five or whatever, what do you stop on?
