So everyone has pet peeves. Mine just seems to bother only me! I hate being low on supplies. Paper plates, water, gas, toothpaste, etc. When I get down to a quarter of any given item, I must go buy more. I absolutely HATE to run out of anything. I HATE it!
So today my FX is at Infiniti for an oil change. They offered me a lovely G35 loaner and I took it. Well, the car has just under 1/4 tank of gas! The woman said “just return it empty” as if it were nothing. So I am driving along and I have to keep the “info” screen on so I can see how many miles I have left. I know 63 is fine – but I am much more comfortable with anything over 100! I remember my friend Beth used to drive her BMW to where it had 10 miles left before empty. It would make me crazy! Then she would stop for gas and put $3 in (this was when $3 got you 3 gallons!).
Here is the info screen (a bit dusty):
I just wonder if anyone else is neurotic like I am. Chris is just the opposite. He waits until he is OUT of shampoo and then just borrows mine. Or he grabs one of the last garbage bags and doesn’t add it to the list. He borrowed my FX a few months back and drove all over town. The next morning, I went to drive somewhere and not only was the gas light on, but the computer couldn’t even calculate how many miles to empty! It just had a star! The line was below E and I can’t believe I didn’t run out of gas. I was ticked!
