What is “Myki”, Alex? (at Prahran Station)
I worked at a bulletproof gas station many years ago. When the Coke machine broke, I put a big sign on it that said “THING’S BUSTED" because, well, I’m weird.
The funny thing is that people kept losing money in it and complaining to me. They couldn’t comprehend something that wasn’t the normal, pedestrian “Out Of Order”.
I didn’t feel bad about retrieving their money later because there was a sign on the machine. And I have to admit that there was a secondary reason for my lack of remorse. The people in that town seemed to be particularly dumb and their stupidity got under my skin all the time. But that’s a story for another time.
I get replies…
You have negative millilitres? How does that work?
It does bother me that they abbreviate “miles” to “mls”. It should be “mi”. I blame the Germans. The Imperial Brits would have gotten it right.
OOooohh, you have a Mini too? I’ve never tried to push mine that far, mainly because I’m not a fan of the idea of having to actually push it. Push it real good… Yeah, you know you’re singing it too
I’ll be Salt, you be Pepa.
I wasn’t planning to (HA, ssss) push it, push it that far, but I mis-read the information in Gas Buddy, which made my intended destination 13 cents per gallon more expensive than I thought.
Waiting to take a right turn for five minutes at a red light when the person in the front COULD HAVE TAKEN IT didn’t help, either.
Not that I’m bitter.
And now I must love you forever.
Ooo! I should have done that much sooner.
I can’t wait to find out what happens when I get Words with Friends to accept “NI”.
