Amusing Moments

So… I have a red (pretty much pinkish at this point) 2001 Toyota Tacoma Ext Cab truck. 4 Cylinder-so basically the little truck that could) But at least has 4W Drive. However, not even shift-on-the-fly, have to get out and turn the damn locks on the tires. No Beep-Beeps. No power door locks, windows, remote control door opener, among anything else remotely basic provisions on vehicles in the last twenty years.

Driving my hubby’s car the other day (which I do most of the time now since I work from home and go nowhere during the day so his car is always behind my truck in the driveway). His of course has all the tech (except 4W drive since its a car). I notice the little gas light come on…

…and I think to myself.. wow a little fill your tank suggester! I usually just have to cross myself like a Catholic Cardinal and hope I coast into a gas station on fumes and a prayer. This is awesome… and then a second later… also a little worrying. OMG! I almost had a panic attack. Was I going to make it to the gas station in time? I don’t need that stress in my life with a little fill your tank reminder. Obviously winging it on how much gas I have left has worked very well the last 15 years.
