GUEST BLOG!!!! YIPPEE!!!

The infamous “A” is back in action! I’ve been strong armed (not really, I could take Kell any day…) into sharing an amusing story from my life…

So I stopped at the Tobasi Stop (a gas station w/ super cheap gas, right by my house…) for gas before work on Friday. I was paying with cash so after pumping, I went in to pay (not that I could pay outside even with a card, the place is a little old fashioned). The guy (the same guy that is always in there!!) was talking to a salesman, so I dropped the cash on the counter and said, “Here’s for the gas.” I turned to leave, and the guy came over, smiling, thanked me a little TOO graciously and told me to PLEASE come again. I smiled said, “I’m sure I will.” Then I started running…he had the “look”…you know, like the cashier at the grocery store that’s always a little too friendly…

Anyway, I make it halfway to my car when I hear a pounding noise. I look over my shoulder, and sure enough, there is the “too friendly” guy pounding on the window and motioning for me to come back. I reluctantly return to find him grinning like the cat who ate the canary. He had my money in his hand. I’d given him $1 too much. He had my dollar bill in his hand, saying, “It is my lucky day, you payed too much. Now, you owe me dinner.” I smiled, giggled nervously, took the dollar and ran.

I wish their gas wasn’t so cheap. I wish they had a machine for paying outside. I wish someone else would be working. Man! I’ll never have cheap gas again…unless I go out with skeezy gas station guy…

Rockin’ out to: MPR? My co-worker listens to talk radio all day long. Except when there’s a Twin’s game, then we listen to that. The CD player broke. MAN!
