    Almost 2 months ago I was driving home from a concert weekend in Dallas back to austin.

    Our Dallas friends hosted us when we were there. driving back, it was me, a guy and a girl (they're a couple).

    I made the idiotic decision to go as low as 20 mi left in the tank because I was really trying to get to Buccees and their heavenly gas stations. You can drive in at any given time and see at least 10% the population of texas at the pumps, the snack bar, bathrooms, shopping etc

    We literally get off on the exit ramp, about 200 ft from buccees when I feel my car shudder and stop responding to the gas pedal.....

    Car: Shudders and stops


    me: FUCK:cryingjordan:

    I try and start the car up again 4-5 times, nothing.

    Couple in the car: [​IMG]

    me: :booger:

    Couple: [​IMG] [​IMG]


    I left the car there, decided the problem was gas and I didnt need a mechanic, turned the hazard lights on, walked to bucces, bought a gas can (they got everything:banderas:), filled it, came back, filled the car right there in the emergency lane, aaaaaaaand....


    Car: (starts up again)

    me: [​IMG]

    Couple: [​IMG] [​IMG] :blessed:

    The girl was breathing into a bag / reciting hail marys at this point, she doesnt handle stress very well

    Only the one that ain't pierced.

    Side note: banged a girl a few times that had her clit and one nipple pierced. Fun times. But I was like if you got all that done, why not both nipples.

    She said it hurt. :idk:

    There is a lot of incorrect information about modern vehicles and internal combustion engines recently ITT.

    Good story though hood b. goode
    I would have totally made that guy help me push the car into bucees, iirc there isn't much of a hill near that bucees so it wouldn't have been too hard

    I got caught in one once. I had a super shitty night at work so I ordered a bunch of food at McDonald’s to gorge myself. Like I think it was 2-3 sandwich combos and hot cakes with sausage platter. I was wearing my scrubs so I just thought someone saw a nurse in line and was trying to do something nice for me(it happens occasionally). Had the window person even mentioned it was a chain I probably would have obliged. Instead I just waved thank you to the car in front of me.

    If it was 200 ft and the car was moving you could put it into neutral and let your momentum take you there.

    Also, every gas station sells gas cans (at a huge markup, because supply and demand).

    In surgery we have a bunch of female staff in their mid to late 20s, Anytime a movie quote drops, it goes completely over their head...had the idea of getting two or three of them on a podcast called "Movies We Should've Seen By Now" and have them watch various flicks & discuss their interpretation of what they saw.

    This was like 5 years but one of my employees (~18) was listening to OutKast’s Hey Ya on the radio. When “shake it like a Polaroid picture” came up she did some sort of hula hoop gesture. I joking said what the hell is wrong with you. Then realized she had no idea what a Polaroid was.
