Never thought I’d see it happen in person… November 22, 2005 at 1:40 pm

[ Music: Get ‘Em Up from the album “Bunkka” by Paul Oakenfold ]

but I did. Had stopped to gas up on my way home from Sycuan on Sunday, and as I was paying at the atm interface on the island, I heard this loud metal “Ka-CHUNK” behind me, that sounded like a nozzle hitting the ground. I looked, and sure enough… there’s a nozzle on the ground and a woman in a car that has just stopped and is looking back. Yep.. she tried to drive off with the nozzle from the gas pump still in her tank. How anyone could miss that is beyond me, but she did. She was lucky in that it seemed to just fall out and nothing was broken.

And here I always felt stupid if I just forget to close the outer fuel door, which I haven’t done in ages. But to drive off with the nozzle still in? Yeesh.
