so my car broke down & I was 20 minutes out of town, had to have the car towed somewhere...first person that answered my call was this mechanic that is an acquaintance of a friend. he turned out to be a totally shady hack, but anyway, when I picked up my car there was a HUGE dent on the lip of my wheel where a curb chewed it up, and the mechanic/hack proceeded to tell me what a blast my car is to drive(!!!!) I KNOW it wasn't me b/c I'd just washed my car, plus you feel/hear it when you curb a wheel that bad. when I brought it to the mechanics attention he laughed and said "women drivers"
Actually got a call once where a lady did not pull away far enough to break it.
Dispatch: We have an emergency call for you, how quick can you get to McKeesport?
Dispatch: A lady pulled out with the nozzle in her car, it is stuck in the car.
Me: lol what?
Me: 1/2 hour max.
Dispatch: THERE IS A CHILD IN THE CAR FIRE DEPT IS ON THE WAY they will meet you there.
Me: Did she back up before she tried to take it out?
Dispatch: Nevermind, they just called back. She backed up.
I've never seen it occur, but I have pulled up to a pump that was broken off at the coupling and the hose laying about 20 feet away, so I must have missed it by a couple minutes.
How much does it cost to fix that? There's a station near my work that has handwritten signs taped to the pumps that say "You pay for broken hose due to drive-off" or something similar in horrible Engrish.

About 15 years ago when I lived in Tucson, I found a decoupled nozzle with about 3 feet of hose attached to it behind a 7-11. I would put it in my filler neck and drive around. People would honk and yell and I'd just smile and wave at them like I thought they were just being friendly.
one time this girl ( ~17yo) in a brand new (at the time) benz, pulls up next to me at a stop sign...
On the wrong side of the road.
She rolls down her window and is frantically trying to get my attention... roll down the window
"Hey Im in the wrong lane can I go in front of you..."
*Huge Smile&wave* "THANKS!" drives off
How the f*ck did you end up on the wrong side of the road
Personally this stereotype is pretty dead for me, I've seen so many bad male drivers
that I've deduced that its just 90% of the american population that cant drive
wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.

I broke off one of those hoses once .
It was around '98, I was in a hurry, jumped in, drove off, looked in the mirror, saw the hose. Went to the cashier who told me to just leave it on the ground next to the store. So, I did .
