    Ummm how is that a crisis? Just smile, wave and carry on. They’ll learn soon enough or maybe not, but at my age I could care less what ‘they’ perceive of me.

    Oops, might have taken it a little too far. Filled up the taco and put 20.5 gallons in. Pretty sure it's a 21 gallon tank. :eek:

    Shit I need to put fuel in the Camry. Fuel light came on yesterday. Just noticed that I bought the car just a little over a year ago and it's just rolled over 6000 miles.

    Yeah, I've filled up before :rolleyes:.

    Considering I only fill up once a month or so I just don't pay attention. My wife's car is over 1.5 yrs old and just rolled over 8k. One thing about it, my daughter is going to have a low mileage car when I give it to her.

    I just don't drive anywhere anymore. Everything we need is within a few miles of the house. I wouldn't have nearly 6k miles on it now if it weren't for driving to Memphis last year and to work and back for half the year before I retired. Now that I've retired it may get driven 3-4 times a week. We're going back to Memphis next month to fly to DC but other than that I doubt it will have 10k miles on it this time next year.

    Sounds like a conversation I had last night with an inexperienced person that was struggling. I offered a brief word of advice, it wasn't well received ... and I don't care. :)

    It was funny more than anything. I suggested that she try a few different mouthpieces for her horn, since she's inexperienced playing it, and the one she was using wasn't a very good option. "This one works great for me!"

    Um ... it doesn't sound that way, but ok, kid.

    Not proud of it but I have. Lucky to still be breathing. :facepalm:
    True - the tC was fine in the snow but the FRS not so much. Like @krap22 I use the taco when it's too shitty out. :D

    That's part of my son's RWD driver's education. "You can accelerate, or you can turn. Don't try to do both at the same time."

    It's like this whole other kind of weather. It gets below freezing, icy stuff rains down from the sky, caretakers of fancy hotels lose their minds and try to kill Olive Oyl.

    It's so awesome, they even have their own Olympics for it.
