I'm freeeeeeeeee ~~ But those gas tanks are NOT!

Yay, I'm freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! Yay!! I do not have to wear this thing anymore!
I am soooo glad to be out of this thing now! My orthodics haven't come in yet, but I told the doc that I could wear my old ones till the new ones come in & he said that would be fine. Whew! I'll get my hip adjusted again tomorrow & then hopefully, each day will get better & my wankle will get stronger & stronger. Maybe Incredible Hulk strong! (or not)
Next week another muscle test & I'm still in therapy 3x's a week. I think soon, this will all be behind me. I hope they'll let me start on the treadmill soon too. I think walking will help along with the other therapy exercises. But I've been good & not doing things against their orders.

Now to the gas issue. I always use a specific gas station that is on my way to therapy. I'm driving a big cargo type of van right now, so it sucks gas like a thirsty elephant. Today, I pull up to that station, put my card in, get approval for filling, start to push the button for the grade I want & what?? It' snot $3.11 like their sign said stated (signs usually don't actually talk)? Huh? I look at the sign again. Dammit, they changed their system. It's $3.11 IF YOU PAY CASH ONLY!! The debit/credit card price is $3.22. So I put the nozzle back in the gas stations tank, cancel it & drive away! Humpf! They were NOT like that last week! I don't carry cash!!
There's another gas station on that route I used to buy my gas at & stopped buying there too because of that! I drove away from them in the same manner too. I refuse to play that game with them. They will be losing any future money from me. I am boycotting stations that do this. I don't think it's fair to penalize or reward folks that pay by cash or debit. I realize that they have to pay charges on credit cards, but it's not that much to raise the prices to that degree! I personally think it's a scam for more profit in someone's pocket.
I found another station that happily took my debit card for gas at the cost of $3.13 per gallon, so there you stinkee stations. Take that. Their gain, your loss.
Heh heh heh


I don't usually use graphics I find on the net, but I'm too lazy tonight to get the camera out. :-P

  3. I know how exciting it is to get out of that stupid boot. I was really excited to get the boot after four months in casts but by the time the boot came off I hated it. Keep behaving and eventually that ankle will work again.

    I always dress up to go to Walmart. I put a bra on. lol

  6. I'm happy to hear your done with the boot. My friend had to wear one and she hated it too.

    I did the same thing with the gas station right down the corner. they charge less for gas if its cash. I don't carry cash either. Never went back there.
