My roommate in my 20s was a rich girl who had a weird thing about putting gas in her car. I think it was because her parents made her pay for it, even though they covered her rent. As a result she would grudgingly spend only a few dollar bills and change at a time on gas. It was like she tried not to even notice spending money on gas because it pissed her off. She used to run out of gas on the side of the road pretty regularly and call her boyfriend to bail her out. I totally learned from living with her exactly how it feels when a car runs out of gas. Since those days I've made it a point never to go through that hassle again. [ Reply | More ]
