Mistakes

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

Someone sent me a photo of a car driving down the freeway with a gas nozzle and hose trailing along behind a car.  It reminded me of the time I filled up with gas at a local service station, paid my bill, and began to drive off.  I heard a noise and felt a tug and instantly hit my brakes.  Too late.  I had already pulled the hose out of the pump.

I apologized to the attendant, but she seemed to not be upset at all, as if this was a routine occurance.  It was comforting to know there are other idiots out there sharing the road with me.

Careless mistakes happen to the best of us.  They remind us that we are human and keep us humble.

And I thought I was the only idiot whoever did that! Just kidding. Very interesting and funny story. Thanks for sharing something that allows people to see you as the human you are.
