Will Work for Gas

Dear Diary,

Sorry I'm late.  I had car trouble this morning on the freeway.  For the first time in my 15-year driving career, I ran out of gas.  Fortunately, I managed to drop off "CB Ty" before it happened.  Two minutes after that, on the freeway, I felt the engine shake and poof, I was stuck.

I sat in denial for a few minutes on the side of the freeway next to a call box.  I didn't get out right away to call for help because I was too embarrassed to explain why I was calling.

The most embarrassing part, though, was having to call work and explain why I was going to be late.  "Wall Knocker" made sure I felt embarrassed; he was laughing hard.

On the bright side, I managed to stay busy while I was waiting for the Freeway Service Patrol.  I collected some nice pieces of firewood.  So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Oddly enough your last two embarassing moments are gas-related. I can't wait for #5!
