I found the answer! The question? How to deal with the high price of paying for fuel at the pumps. The other day I was putting gas in my car. While so doing I was wondering within myself concerning the cost. A number of days prior I had paid considerably to fill up a second car and was shocked at my bill, and no I don't drive big gas guzzlers either.
This day, giving the car a fill, [and no the car in the picture is not mine] the gas was 120 a litre and even with the little bit of gas remaining in the tank I still faced a bill of 52 dollars! As I walked towards the station to have them relieve me from this good chunk of change I'm thinking, 'Oh no! I worked hard for this money, and I'm surely not finding it quite so easy to part with some of my Almighty Dollars which aren't quite so mighty any more. I resigned myself to the reality however that it doesn't matter what one wants you do whatever you have to do and that's all there is to it!
I concluded as well that it's not doing anyone a favor to be acting like a gloomy gus therefore, there 'd be no crying the blues from me! I put a smile on my face and a spring in my step and made my best attempt at being happy and joyful. I say to the gas attendant, "Pump 7". He smiles and directs me to swipe my card through the proper slot and....NOTHING HAPPENS.
I tried it again...still nothing. As I wondered what possibly was the problem I looked up only to find that he and another gas attendant were laughing, one having a real belly laugh at my expense! "I don't think that particular card is going to work sir." I hear one say. I turned it around to look at it and discovered much to my my chagrin I had mistakenly sought to pay my bill using my LIBRARY CARD!!!
