Hi everyone! Well, I am starting to feel myself getting back together after the loss of 3 pets close together. I took a weekend trip ( 5 hours away ) with my parents to visit my Great Aunt who is 90. My dad is 77, mom 75. It was a nice time and I am busy at home but I thought if I said no it really could be the last time I see her. You never know at 90! She still lives at home and all too! So I stayed all weekend with my parents and Great Aunt at her house. I cherish every moment but it was a challenge for me as everyone moves slower than pond water in January! 😂 Good God.
First Dad wanted to fill up before we left. ( He drove there with me co-pilot ) I wasn’t paying attention and then I hear my mom “Your father is about to fill the tank up with diesel Jackie!” She rolls down her window and he tells her he just noticed. Mom says out the window “Did you put your credit card in already?” “Can you cancel the transaction?” Not giving dad a minute to think. Me: “Mom yes he can cancel the transaction he hasn’t pushed the diesel button or started pumping. Plus the diesel nozzle is bigger than a regular model and it wouldn’t fit in.”
Dad: “Jan I have it under control. Give me a minute.” Mom: “Don’t forget the gas cap you put on top of the pump.” Mom again “Oh my gosh I just can’t believe your father almost put diesel in the tank.” Me: “Mom like I said, it wouldn’t have fit in anyway, diesel nozzles are a bit wider than regular fuel nozzles.”
Dad cancels transaction and gets in the car to move up to a non diesel pump. Dad: “I’m so glad I realized it was diesel before I started pumping!” Me AGAIN: “Dad the nozzle on the diesel pumps are wider than a regular pump so it likely wouldn’t have fit in anyway.”
Dad moves up a pump leaving the gas cap on top previous pump.
Mom: “Honey you left the gas cap on top of the diese pump.” Dad: “I realize that and I’m only moving 1 pump ahead, I’ll get it.”
Dad fills the tank and it says “See cashier for a receipt.” He goes inside and gets it and then hands it to mom and she reads it off to him and he checks the pump and makes sure it’s all correct.
And then mom needs a minute to get “get back set in her seat and buckled in.” Mom after 5 minutes which felt like a lifetime: “I’m all set dear!” Dad: “You sure?” Mom: “Yep!”
I could have carried a child and delivered with the amount of time we spent just filling up before leaving. 😂😆🤣😂😆🤣
And all this BEFORE we set off for our trip!
And I’ve never listened so many bowel movement conversations in my life. 😂🤣
I wouldn’t change it for the world though. Thought I’d share!
