Family Circus style driving part 7

This happened Tuesday evening. I got a phone call and had to drive 2 miles to help wife who had a car problem.

I had to go to the gas station and pay 6 bucks for a can since I was not comfortable pushing it over train tracks not knowing when the commuter train would arrive.

P.S. She did not realize there was a gas station there until I told her since she usually does not go to it.

P.P.S. She did not call me until after On Star said it would take 45 minutes for them to help her.

I did run out of gas one time in 1996. After working 4AM to 4PM and taking 90 minutes through normal Chicago area traffic for that time of day to drive home, I was so tired I left the engine running even though I locked the car door. It was not discovered until the next morning after a frantic search for the one set of car keys which was discovered in the ignition of the car which was no longer running after using the quarter tank of gas that was in it ten hours before.
