No, this doesn’t have to do with a high-grain diet. I normally run my car right to empty, until I’m terrified I’ll run out of gas on the highway. I do this every time. On the way to work this week, running late of course, I coasted into the gas station on fumes. Pulled the switch to open the gas filler door, walked around to pump gas, and the door wasn’t open. Okay, tried it again. I should point out this is an electronic switch. I guess Volkswagen engineers really trusted their electronics. It didn’t open. What to do? Car’s out of gas, I can’t put gas in it, and I’m late for work. Such a little thing as a filler cap switch disables the entire car. I tried variations for five minutes: ignition on, key in but ignition off, foot on brake, doors closed, doors open. Somehow it finally opened. As I drove to work, steam shooting from my ears, I thought, “I need to take this to the dealer and have them fix it.” It’s still under warranty, so it shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Have I called the dealership? Of course not! I’ve got a full tank of gas, what am I worried about?
I’ll end the week with something that’s made me laugh each time I’ve heard it. Though this is a YouTube clip, it’s audio only. Enjoy—it’s worth nine minutes of your time for a good laugh.
