Roadblocks on the Highway of Life

Well, I'm back. And totally stressed out.

My legal conference was fine. Except for the part where I drove to it, and getting gas at a rest stop on the Interstate, I accidentally filled up the gas tank of my brand new car with DIESEL FUEL.

The car is now at the mechanic's, where the gas tank was drained, the fuel injectors were flushed and the spark plugs and oxygen sensors are being replaced.

I blame myself for not paying attention, but hey - it was late at night, and dark, and I was tired.

And part of me blames Exxon. The diesel pump wasn't clearly marked, it was in the middle of the unleaded pumps, and the nozzle was essentially the same (I've been told that most diesel pumps are a different shape for just this reason - to prevent confusion).

It's a funny story, I guess...it was really funny when the Fiance and the Sister had to get out of my car and push it, like it was an old jalopy.
