Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

I've been slacking off on this blog thing... it happens this time of year.

Gas Trickery

Now something has been really irking me, for about 16 years now, at least once a week. Every week. Why is it that at every gas station, the different grades of gas are arranged in some random order? Wouldn't make it logical sense to put the low grade on the left, the high grade on the right, and the middle in the middle? Even if it was slightly illogical, reverse the order. Now I know someone got paid a lot of money to design the machines, so there has to be a good reason.

Reason #1
Let's try to trick these idiots into putting more expensive gas in their car!

Reason #2
Let's try to trick an idiot to blowing up his engine by putting low octane gas into an engine that requires high octane.

The 1st reason is not really a big deal. Spend an extra dollar or 2, nothing to cause a fit over. But I fall in this second category. My super-charged engine requires highly oxegenated gas for it to operate properly. If I put low octane gas in there, I risk having to pay $4,000 for a replacement engine. Why? Because someone tried to trick me!

Is it just me? Or am I trippin' again.

Happy Holidays to you and yours. Enjoy your beach vacation. I surprised my husband and immediate family members with a trip to Disney World this Christmas. It's wonderful getting away from the norm!
