A little Venting never hurt anyone!

Time for another Manic Monday post!  Basically what can I find to vent about this week?  Okay so, totally my fault... this one right here... but I work in a different city than I live.  I travel about 35 miles to work, and I was ready to get out of there on Thursday.  I had just gotten paid and couldn't wait to get back home.  I usually work shorter days, about 5 hours or so.  This particular day I had worked 7 1/2 (wahhhh, I know) so I was just ready to bust out and get home.  I went to the bank, cashed my check... called the Whit and started home.  Totally missing out on part of my normal routine before I skip town, and forgot to fill up my gas tank.  I am sure you guys can guess the rest.  That's right folks... in the autumn chill on a highway stretch, I ran out of gas!  Ick... so what about you? 
I'd love to know what "ick" happened to you this week.  Scribble up a post, (don't forget to mention Manic Monday)  head over to Whitney's Random Ideas and sign Mr. Linky!  I can't wait to read them all

Eeek. I have to say I've never run out of gas before but it's been sheer luck. I generally fill up when it gets to 1/3rd of a tank but there have been times... My tank tends to jump down to empty all of a sudden. And I don't have one of those gauges that tells how many miles I have left. I'd probably be dangerous if I had that!

this is exactly why i am glad I work from home (granted it's home daycare but still) I am glad I wasn't stuck on the Highway I would have been so scare.

Oh that stinks so bad. I'm so bad about my car. I swear if it weren't for my husband it would fall into a black hole off the face of the Earth. I hope you had AAA!

My week went quite well, but I totally sympathise with you. When are they going to make cars that do automatic refills, that's what I want to know!!
