Retro in the Metro


I had to wait in line for over an hour on Memorial Drive to buy gas today, so I had plenty of time to hate on everyone--the hogs in their SUVs, the losers who left their cars sitting in front of the pump while they went inside to pay CASH, the morons with kids in the car, the asswipes who needed lessons on how the pump works...

As soon as I have time, I'm going to write my RULES FOR BUYING GAS DURING A FUEL CRISIS.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But,I thought your family owned an FJ Cruiser? Does that qualify you as a 'hog'?

That qualifies my husband as a hog. Ask him how I feel about his "car."

I drive a '98 Beetle.

I also always pay with cash.

Tania Rochelle said...

No, Biggy, you USUALLY pay with cash. But during this crisis, when you have a hundred cars lined up behind you, you use your check card.

biggy said...

nope, I still use the greenbacks.

Very shellfish.

Why are there such long lines? And how much is gas down there?

Tania Rochelle said...

Something about having only one refinery in this region.

I paid 4.39 yesterday.

Good list. Here's another thing those in GA should do: Call our do-nothing Governor's office at 404-656-1776 and tell the flunky who answers that (a) you're outraged the Governor waited a week after Kentucky before asking for a waiver from the EPA (as reported on WSBTV: http://www.wsbtv.com./automotive/17578885/detail.html (b)that the good Governor needs to get his butt home from his junket in Europe and deal with this mess, and (c) the Governor's office should be issuing hourly updates about the status of gas stations, distributors and tankers (d)the Georgia Highway Patrol and National Guard should direct traffic at all stations with gas.
