There are two types of people in Amarillo. We either fit in one category or the other. Tell me this isn't true.

I mean there are the type of people, like me, who have to have a full tank of gas. Then there are those of you who like to push your car to the limit. Oh, I have time to get gas later. It's on E. I know this but I can make it to and from my location.

Does this sound at all familiar to you?

I had to go out and take the station vehicle to an event the other day. I got in and saw that it was about on E. I literally almost had a panic attack. Now the gauge did say that I had 40 miles to E. I know where I am going is less than 5 miles away. I don't know this vehicle that well.

What if it forsakes me? What if I have to be rescued from the side of the road. I could not fathom that. I made it to and from with no problem. It didn't make me feel any better about the situation the next day.

So I asked my boss if we had a gas card. We do. So I knew I had another event this weekend and I sure couldn't live like this again. I have to make time this week to go to the Toot n Totum and fill up. I just have to.

So this morning comes and I think OK I have some time. Let me go and check the gas situation. I have time to go and get gas. I do. So let's make this happen.

I go out and sweet freedom. I have a full tank. The gas gods helped me out. Oh, as I found out they took the station vehicle to lunch yesterday and decided to go ahead and fill it up.

Literally my own car is on full.

I took the Happy State Bank Bug and filled it up yesterday too. I have to have a full tank. I mean my life is pretty hectic. I don't want to be that person who runs out of time and gas and has to call AAA.

I can breathe now. I am not going to fall over here from the stress of the station gas tank. This is a good day!
