(I am back and we have some things to discuss. Can't... control.... anger!"

I am in some class for 3 days so I can't really post during the day. Oh and my hotel charges for Internet access - so I can't post at night (If I am getting a room charge it will be of the porno variety). So my blog is going to hella suck until Friday (at least). Oh... what the hell, how 'bout a quick one.

Gas Pumps
Here is some shit that pisses me off at the gas pump (I have to be brief).
(1) Sometimes the credit card reader is broken. I am not sure why or how this happens - but I never discover it until I am parked and out of my car.
(2) Remove card QUICKLY!!! Why - what is the deal? Do you not have to pay if you remove card slowly?? No other card readers on earth have a speed requirement.
(3) Credit or Debit? My card is *only* credit - isn't there a computer in there that can figure it out and skip that question?
(4) Car wash? F you. I never want a car wash - they are a stupid waste of money - let me start pumping gas and THEN lets play 20 questions.
(5) People who have to "top off" and then some little "shock wave" is sent through the whole gas station and every pump sort of hiccups as they click away for the last ounce.

Okay that's it. I have a good story about having a hang over and getting an interview with a company that makes gas pumps.

Other stories I owe you:
bathrooms (in the stall)
the hungover Interview

You really know how to tickle my ass with a feather with that "I have a good story about having a hang over and getting an interview with a company that makes gas pumps" stuff. Get to it, man!

did you see me snickering when I was topping off and pissing off everyone? it's good for a couple of laughs. I'm thinking of getting a big suv just so I have to goto the gas station more often and top off.

Mobil station, right? Damn them and their touch-free car wash. One of the things it doesn't touch is the fucking dirt on your car. It sucks.

When it comes to swiping bank cards, something that pisses me off is:

When I put in my card, it asks me every time if I want to take the money out of checking or savings. Now, I don't have a savings, so I just wonder where it want to pull this magic money from.

Didn't I put in my PIN number? Don't you know who I am?

And another thing, ATM machine - don't you know I speak English? Every damn time, "Spanish or English?" I'm thinking, if my monthly banking statement is printed in English, the ATM should know that is the language I speak, WTF?
