$7 on pump #3 please.

March 16th, 2011 at 10:43 am

"$7 on pump #3 please." These were the words uttered out of my mouth after I dropped off kiddo #1 at school. Yup, the last time I said something like this to get my car going from point A to B was, oh, let me think...when I was 16 years old and driving an '83 volvo clunker. I am 30 years old today and as painful and weird as it was, it made me chuckle that I could only get $7 worth of gas, not necessarily on a volvo clunker,but a pretty decent car that still needs the "Check Engine" light to go off (on even a metaphorical level)lol. So after paying the cashier my whopping $7, I go to the pump and stand there thinking I'd have a minute or two for it to fill, like I'm used to. I didn't even have time to do the "lookibng off to space while I fill up the tank" thing going. A few seconds went by and then the handle went "Click." I looked and $7 got me less than 2 units of gas. However, I am still thankful that I even had the $7Smile I swear, today a dollar never looked so good and to know my car will get me from A to B until tomorrow's payday is even better!

    I know the feeling. I often think about when I couldn't fill up each time I needed gas. I measure the success of my budget by being able to fill up each time and not get enough to get through the day. You will get there too. It took time for me to get to that point.

    I bet they hear those words more often in the last few years. It just means you are being responsible and only buying what you can afford.

    Yipee!! Payday is tomorrow. Smile

    When I was young, I used to stop and ask for $3 regular. Of course, I can remember when gas cost 20 cents a gallon, so $3 would just about till you up.

    We have all been there at least once, me more than once. I actually had to check my checkbook once just to buy Scott brand toilet paper - by the roll. Be glad you had $7 and did not have to break out a credit card to buy gas.
