    Dangnammit!


    It was around 0630, and I was coming back from sitting at the Lake. Came up to a train crossing , and put 'er in park to wait. In front of me sat a green Jeep. The type that is so utterly small and low to the ground that you'd swear it is a Soviet built car or something. Anyway, the train goes by, and we all take off again .. that is except me . My fuel filter starts throwing fits, and I'm surging and stalling out at a whopping 4 miles per hour. The wittle Jeep leaves me in it's dust.

    I throw it in neutral and fire it up again, and tenuously continue on .. pull into the market and who do I see parking a few spots away as I realize I've stalled again?? Yup .. the greenjeep. So I try to smoothly curve round into a spot with my remaining momentuum .. thinking I might be able to fool him into thinking this is some advanced , low fuel expending, parking spot access modality. Yeah .. I wish :rolleyes: . I die within 15 degrees of a 90 and 10 feet from the concrete block.

    I sit and cooly take a sip of my coffee .. hoping he'll be far and away inside the strore before I try restarting the 80. Good thing cause she'll have nothing of it for the first few attempts. Finally I get it parked and walk in ... a little disheveled.

    So glad when I pulled up behind him at the crossing I didn't outright burst out laughing at his heep .. I just quietly cracked a grin is all :D



    TY

    How embarrasing for you TY. I suppose you could change out your fuel filter, but then you'd not have any heep adventures to go on about :flipoff2:

    Maybe you should have used your last remaining bit of momentum to back into the heep and say s/he hit you :rolleyes:

    Whenver I get just a little uppity about ANYTHING, it comes back to get me. I blame my current set of circumstances on my "I'm badass" post about my AC over in tech...things just haven't been right since then.

    Humility!
