Oy... little sleepy today, although I did fall asleep at a reasonable hour... it was very hard for me to pry myself out of bed this morning. So I did my usual throw-on-clothes, throw-food-in-bag, grab-purse-and-go thing, so I would have been to work on time, EXCEPT.... I had forgotten to get gas in my car at some point over the weekend cuz we were always in Nate's vehicle. Now for those of you that don't know me, I'm a weird mix of dependence and independence, and have a fair measure of traditional "that's mens work" attitude, which thankfully my husband shares. Why am I telling you this? Because I usually do not go to the gas station myself. Thankfully, I knew where one was that was on my way to work and easy for me to get in and out of (my directional skills are not the best). So pull into the gas station, get $5.00 of gas so I can get to work and hopefully not be too late, go out to my car, and cannot open my gas cap. Feel free to point and laugh, I felt dumb. It has weird instructions on it about turning it a half turn and waiting for the hissing to stop - whatever! I turned the thing and stopped it at probably every degree for a full 360 and the damn thing wouldn't open. I finally had to put on my "I'm just a dumb girl, help me" look and ask the cashier to help me... he opened it right up - I think the directions are on it to screw me over, he didn't do any half-turn stuff. So it's open, I pump my gas (thankfully that went okay, dammit I really am not totally clueless) CLOSE the gas tank without assistance and go on my merry way... 15 min late to work but it could have been worse. While I'm not as cute as I used to be, I'm still glad I'm a girl and am thus entitled in most men's minds to getting help with dumb things like this. LOL... I would hate to be a burly man and have to ask for help opening the gas tank. Ah well... that was my lil adventure this morning, just wanted to share.
