I Mean Damn!

Ok, gas just jumped to $4.09. That's it, I'm selling my kidney on eBay.

This is freakin ridiculous!

That's alright, I'm breaking out the Big Wheel and drive that shit to work.




36 People saying stuff:

At least you are working. I know SO MANY people who are out of work right now. Add that to the gas situation and I don't know I would do.

1/3 of what I used to be said...

So@24 said...

and then you can turn it upside down and sell ice cream on the side.

Oh and in sunny Los Angeles, we're at 4.53. Bah!

KT said...

Scrapping My 2 Precious Gems said...

I definitely hear you! It has gotten to the point where I have to make sure I am only driving the car towards certain areas of town where I need to hit up more than one store. If not, it seems to not be cost effective. We will never see gas at $2 a gallon ever again....

Sandi McBride said...

I've been considering a big trike with a two cycle engine to take to town...can't look anymore ridiculous than the golf carts on the road! And they'd go faster, lol...glad so see your visit at my place...I do love your blog...you make me laugh out loud

Trixie said...

Sweetie, we are still paying about $10 a gallon in the UK. If only I could walk to work!

Melissa said...

hahaha....I think we all need to ride big wheels around. Our gas prices are still $3.99, I bet they will jump up soon, the 4th of July is coming up.

Lys said...

I'm going to keep my senator's phone on speed dial to complain. Who pays for their gas, I wonder?

Someone needs to do something - seriously!

That girl said...

What? $4.09 a litre? (Don't laugh, I live in Canada, we measure by litres)

I'm guessing that's a gallon. Now if I just knew how many litres were in a gallon, I'd get this.

Here it's climbed to $1.45 a litre... that is a lot. It used to be .33 cents a litre when I was pregnant with my son, 8 years ago... Now that is inflation.

dmarks said...

$4.09? So cool. Wish ours dropped that low!

Claudia said...

OMG LMAO, I just had a harsh kiddie flashback.. fighting with my little bro to ride on his wheels JUST LIKE THAT ONE! HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

tAnYeTTa said...

Try $4.65 a gallon.

I'm dead serious.

Jeni said...

Sure do agree here too that the gas prices are totally ridiculous! Living out in the boonies where we are, you HAVE to have a car, no public transportation ya know. It's a royal pain in the dupa but we're trying to combine errands with appointments. With two little ones with therapy appointments and an oldster like me with medical issues too, it's the only way we can even try to manage.
Peace!

Freckle Face Girl said...

I guess nobody will be taking long road trips this summer, especially on a big wheel. :)

durtymo said...

LMBAO!! It costs me $0 to get to work. I slug which means other folks burning up their gas to drive my fat azz to work.. LOL! Plus my job pays for transit.. *sweet*

One Man’s Opinion said...

Did you know you could pimp your body at your local Exxon for five gallons worth of gas. It is totally worth it. LOL

shorty said...

We are hovering at $3.99.

I loved those big wheels. Curses to my mother who sold it for $2 at a yard sale in 1984.

Now a days they are motorized. Lazy kids.

Have a great week. How are things with the house coming along? And the Analyst. Is having him gone during the week, making the heart grow fonder?

minijonb said...

i never wanted to give up my Big Wheel, but my mother made me! now she's sorry.

awesome post! i love that pic, it made me laugh!!!

Suze's Sass said...

I think I'm going to get one of those rubber balls with the handle and bounce to work.

BTW, my kidneys are getting middle-aged - what's the highest bid so far?

KIKI said...

Shooooo...put a side-car on that mugg & you could car pool.

hehehehehehe

What? with gas prices this damn high, you got to find something to laugh about to keep from crying...

I did kick the shyt outta the gas pump the other day, though when $45 only put me at 3/4 of a tank full. BP clerk come runnin out talkin bout they would call the police...I started to kick her in the ass while I was at it!

dc_speaks said...

Renaissance Woman said...

I have been trying to figure out a way to make more money...body parts on ebay! Great idea. You should get a scooter!!!! So much fun.

CarmenSinCity said...

Queen of the Mayhem said...

I feel your pain! Did I mention that Mr. Mayhem just bought a GIANT new truck?

imbeingheldhostage said...

Hilarious! You already had me at the kidney, but then the big wheel, you funny girl. How's the house stuff coming?

MysTery said...

Big wheels are us! :)

Ann(ie) said...

Daysha Writes said...

I agree!!! I think a moped or a skateboard might be a good choice for me as well.
