“Fast Getaway” by Robyn (Spanish Fork, Utah)

One day, while gassing the automobile at the local gas station, my most embarrassing moment occurred.  Note the description local, which makes this moment even more embarrassing.   At the time we lived in a small town of maybe 8,000; and that would be counting the farmers.  Everyone knows everyone and everything that goes on.   Added to the fact that my youngest, which was almost the age to get his driver’s license was with me.  Yes, I dd.  I drove away with the gas hose still attached to my gas tank.  WHOOPS!  My son noticed immediately, or I would have ended up home with it. The owner wouldn’t allow me to pay for reconnecting and tried to make me feel better by saying that it happens all the time. NOT TO ME!!!
