That Little Light Means Something!

Ok, why did I get a call at work from a really good friend yesterday? She and I are talking about her upcoming TV game show appearance when all of a sudden she exclaims, "What is going on with my car? I ...think...I ....am...running...out...of ....gas....!"

My immediate response was, "Well, how far are you from a gas station?"

She says, "I'm not sure. Oh my goodness...I'm slowing down! I think I am really out of gas. I've been driving with my gas light on for the last three days."

Me, *Blank stare* "You do realize that the gas light means you need gas right?"

My Friend, "Everyone's a critic."

Me, *Laughing hysterically*

My Friend, "I gotta go call AAA. Bye!"

25 People saying stuff:

ANO said...

I freak out when my gas light comes on! I'd never drive three days with it on! lol

shorty said...

Classic.

Now do we have to wonder why men pick on us and make up blonde jokes?

She isn't a blonde is she? lol

SSC said...

I think your friend is my twin!!!!

Craze said...

Im anal, I have to put gas in when it gets below a 1/2 tank.

MysTery said...

Lol! Hey don't act like your car wasn't just smoking the other day!!

dmarks said...

A visit to Blondstar might be in order.

Sojourner G said...

I haven't run out of gas since I was 17. Forget that. If it starts sniffing a quarter tank, I'm at the station!

What kinda gas mileage is she getting to run with the light on for three days before she runs out?!?! What did she do, fill up in December?

CarmenSinCity said...

ha ha ha - that's funny! Good thing she had AAA.

Vi said...

I've only ever done this once in my life, when I took on a new company car, and the steering wheel hid the light! My boss thought I was a right div!

JsTzznU said...

While not as bad as "craze", my wife freaks when the tank gets any where near 1/4 !! =)

Suze said...

For some reason I never put gas into my car until it's in the red/empty zone. Maybe I think I'm squeezing the last bit of old gas out before I put in new gas? Maybe I'm just goofy.

Eb the Celeb said...

hahahaha... that is hilarious... is gas that high that she drove around for 3 days with that light on...

I ran out of gas once... in a rental... and it wasnt my fault... 2 secs after the light came on the thing was out of gas... it was crazy... it didnt even give me a chance to get to a gas station... it is the weirdest feeling in the world when you do run out too... The car starts slowing down and your steady pushing on the gas trying to figure out what's going on... it takes a minute before you even realize it because you have no gas...LOL

Terri said...

I am SO that person. I see my light come on and I know how many miles I can go before I get gas. I haven't run out, really run out but once. I just hate getting gas so I want until the last possible moment. :o)

Stop by my blog - I'm having a contest!

Not Fainthearted said...

hopefully she won't wait three days when her oil light comes on. It's a lot more expensive to rebuild the engine than to have AAA bring out 5 gallons of gas.

Pageant Mom said...

That is so funny!!! Good for her she didn't totally freak out! (or maybe that's not the first time it's happened....???)

I am OCD about the Gas Tank!!! My husband thinks "E" is for "EEEEHHHH We can go a little further..." And it just stresses me down to my toenails. If my tank gets down to half, I'm running over to the nearest station!

I'm driving an SUV these days but when that lease is over I'm getting a Prius!!!

laughingattheslut said...

I only recently learned that there was such thing as a gas light. I just thought there was the red zone on the gas gauge and I try to stay away from that. I usually get gas between the 1/4 mark and the 1/8 mark to be on the safe side.

And here I thought I was a dope for setting off the check engine light with the loose gas cap.

Joe said...

Oh. Wow. I don't even know what to say.

That's too funny.

magnoliapeach said...

With gas at $3, I rode the gas tank a little more too, but 3 days, poor chile!

dc_speaks said...

um...wow.

I have run out of gas before, but my excuse was that the needle was broken.

it happens.

hopefully she wasnt in the cold too long before AAA came to the rescue.

durtymo said...

*crackin up* You gotta luv yo friends. Ok, ok , ok I'm guilty of driving with my gas light on but ya girlfriend got me beat!

Karen said...

How funny! Knock on wood - that hasn't happened to me, but I drive with the gas light on all the time.

The Ambiguous Blob said...

No WAY. 3 Days!?!?!??

*~*Cece*~* said...

OMG I've done that before! lol I only had my new car a few months so I didn't know how many days I could drive w/the gas light on. Ummm, not very many, I know this now. We just pulled out of the ATM drive thru when KONK...SPUTTER..STALL..QUIT happened! Luckily we coasted across the street & under a tree for shade! The sucky thing is my husband & I weren't speaking & I had to call him, get him up from a nap to bring me gas! LMAO

Ms. Behaving said...

LMAO!!! Damn...a whole 3 days?!?!?!
