You know, sometimes you would swear that I ride the short yellow bus while I conduct regularly scheduled activities on a daily basis, but after this morning...I truly have my OWN doubts about my cognitive ability!
This morning I was coming in to work. The time was roughly 8:15 a.m. and yes, I know I am supposed to be here at 8:00 a.m., but I have made a particular practice of being "fashionably late." Anyways...I was sitting at a light next to the gas station down the street, and the sign had, "$(blank white spot).99" on it. I didn't think anything of it---perhaps they were putting a "3" in said blank white spot??? Who knows, but needless to say, I kept driving.
As I turned the corner, I noticed police directing traffic and a line which consisted of 5% cars, 45% crossovers/SUV's, and 50% vans and trucks were lined up for at LEAST 10 blocks...I was still confused...
I could have just slapped what they call THE SHIT out of myself when I arrived at work (at 8:30 a.m., but what the fuck ever!) and found out what was going on...GAS WAS REALLY FUCKING "$(blank white spot).99" PER GALLON for the first 250 customers and my dumb ass was #1 in line on the one side---and kept going!!!!!!
Piss. Piss. PISSTIVITY!
