you drive away from the gas pump with the pump still in your tank

Waaaaaaay too much on my mind.
The gas station attendant was really nice about it. And it's good to know those emergency shut off things work.
Somehow I managed to get home without further incident.

Ah well, live to fight another day.

Yes, I have had a few moments this week when I have been "not paying attention..."

Glad you met a tolerant and patient response to your moment!!

Oh my; yes, I've done that.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I have been pulling stuff like this all week, totally distracted and making the dumbest mistakes.

Tesla, I am glad to be in good company.

Sitting safely on my couch now with a glass of wine. Hopefully nothing will go wrong anymore until tomorrow morning.

H told me I had left my jacket in the car and that my keys were in my purse!

I have been known to stop at green lights. EEK!

Lord, with Your help I will focus on each small step of the climb, instead of the mountain that stands before me.
