Gas Station Blues

I was so irritated at my better half today. My car was getting low of gas when we went out today. I wanted to stop at the nearest gas station because I don't like to go out with the tank on near empty. But he insisted on going to a station that gives him a discount on his credit card. I didn't know where it was located but didn't know it was so far. Well, we drove and we drove. We passed gas stations and he kept driving. I kept telling him to pull over. I was about ready to bop him one when the gas station came in sight. Does your better half ever get you so irritated you just want to bop him on the nose.?

So many complain about these things! Some of us like to have the tank at least half full always (that would be my choice) while others like to risk it!

I like to see the tank at least half full. But he likes to see it empty before a refill.

@RubyHawk Maybe more women like the half full idea than the men?

@PatZAnthony I think you're right. I always think about being stuck in traffic. You never know when you'll come upon a wreck or roadwork. If your gas tank is on empty you're in trouble.

He's lucky what was left in the tank didn't run out before you got there - then he just might have been bopped.

He might have been. He thinks the car will go right on on an empty tank.

I don't have a better half to deal with right now. I do remember things in the past when I was married and oh how I wanted to bop him.

I think that's when I would have pulled over and put three or four dollars in the car just to get me to the next gas station! Haha Since I've lived alone for twenty years, if my car runs out of gas, then the only one I have the blame is me!

You can't pull over when you're not the driver I kept telling him to do that and he kept tootling on down the road Anyway alls well that ends well. He said we could have driven another hour without running out of gas.

@RubyHawk he sounds like me. My ex used to fill the tank back up when we got to a half tank. That drove me crazy

I'm so glad it's only me I have to worry about but I can imagine if I were in your shoes I would have bopped him one right off. I don't like risking running out of gas.

You can be sure the tank won't be that empty again.

I like to have plenty of gas in the tank at all times. You never know what might happen on the road.

@RubyHawk This is my same opinion, why to have problems when you can prevent them.

i am a regular customer of a gas station that is about 250 meters far from our house. it is discounted. and yes, sometimes i want to have the gas tank filled that i try to reach the location of the station, but thinking out loud, even if i fill up the tank but the location is far (if from the city), then it will follow. your husband wanted a discount in his credit card and yet the gas station was far? it is the same therefore, if he filled up your car nearer to your house, than far but with discount from his card.

I thought you were going to say that you ran out of gas, so I'm glad that didn't happen. My husband doesn't drive any more, so it's up to me to fill it up when it needs it. That's not to say that my husband doesn't have other irritating habits - what man doesn't?

I sometimes fill up but didn't this time. And you're right we all can have irritating habits and I'm sure I have as many as anyone
