Can We Get a Refill?

When I first mentioned my irritation with Chevron and my out-of-order gas station , I sent the link to Chevron’s corporate office. I guess I really was annoyed to have gone that far. (I did the same thing to Kaiser but we’ll deal with that later.) Anyway, a few days later, Chevron’s response was to put a new tarp on the sign.

Okay, so I’m being paranoid. It probably had nothing to do with me. But, it’s amusing to think that it might have. They may not have liked me saying their sign looked like an abandoned infant “with it’s fallen tarp looking like a dirty baby diaper.” A couple of weeks after the new tarp, something happened. Check out these windows! So clean! Hmmm… most people clean house before moving in don’t they?

A couple of days ago, there was a little truck there. I had to walk up to it and ask (because I’m nosy like that). “Whatchya doing?” You should have seen the glaring look I got! Sorry! I think I scared him. Anyway, I had to know! “Is it going to reopen?” I queried. “Sometime next month” was the curt reply. Good enough for me. We shall see. I’ll be sure to keep you informed! I know, you’re thinking that that’s what you were afraid of. I guess I have to add another category to this blog… maybe “This Irritates Me” or “This Pisses Me Off” or something like that but not so crude.

Hey, how about a contest?!? You guys give me a title and I’ll give the best one some “link love.” Who made up that expression — link love? And you guys think I’m weird? I gotta think about this. Back with this in a bit! You think about a category name while I think about how to do this, and remember to keep it clean.

    Carole, you are too funny! Is that an entry? 🙂 I was going to write a little post about it because I think it would be fun. So, I’ll add your comment to that, okay? Thank you for your submission to the contest that is about to start!
