So, here’s the situation: You’re pumping gas, and you want to be efficient and get exactly, let’s say, ten dollars worth. In order to achieve such a feat, you will have to gently squeeze the handle at the right moment and very, very gently drift it up to the next dollar. We all know how hard this is, and it gets twice as hard with gas near $2.00 per gallon.
So $9.00 arrives and you start getting ready to hit that perfect $10.00. $9.55 … $9.56 … $9.57 … $9.58 … $9.59 … $9.60. $9.60?!?! Damnit I’m a moron. Yep. There sure are one-hundred cents per dollar. Ooops. Forty cents to go. Start over!
Please, join me in saying “Ahhh! I’m not the only one!”
