Also, I'd like to think she is filling a separate a container INSIDE the open bin, and is just being extra careful about containment, but who knows...

uh, yeah. you keep on thinking those positive thoughts

.

I wonder how much she sloshed out getting it in and out of the trunk. A tub that big would be very heavy and hard to lift. I don’t even see a lid.

That is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. That car will smell like gas forever... at least it will if it doesn't blow up on the way home.

Fire is the MUCH greater concern here. If that were to ignite in that car interior... good night, Irene.



It is what it is.

Panini is the plural form of panino.

What are paninis?

Yes, yes blame the shortage on “panic” buying and not on Colonial Pipeline.

People are topping off their tanks because they have to work! Shaming people for filling up gas containers is crass. It’s a drop in the literal bucket. Plus the gas may be for work related reasons, ie landscaping, farms, repair vehicles, etc.

After a search and two training days my suburban was down to 1/4 tank. So Monday morning I headed to BJs (similar to Costco) to fill up. There were no lines anywhere yet BJs was already out of regular. Supply was low before the so-called panic buying.

Stop playing judgy hall monitor and place the blame where it belongs. On Colonial Pipeline.



All of this.

People whine when the 'victim' is blamed, and this is no different.

Yes, some people are idiots for pumping gas into unsafe containers (open buckets - really?!)

How many times as a municipal or corporate entity promised a quick repair of a situation and actually been prompt about it?

So the pipeline is OOC for a few days, software fixed (surprisingly quickly, I'd posit) but will take a few more days before supply is back to normal.

Some people still have to drive for work.

And yes, as summer looms and pandemic restrictions ease, the price of fuel in CA has been promising $4/gal.

If we had the same problem, a run on fuel should/would be expected.

I don't drive much and could last a good while if need by on a full tank.

And I might fill a 5gal can, to, if I'm honest.

But no Tupperware containers or Zip Locks.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Patrick DeHaan of Gasbuddy said the shortages/outages are 90% due to people panic buying.
