I apologize in advance, because this has nothing to do with running, tapering, the marathon, the other marathon, candy, food in general, first world problems (well, maybe first world problems) or waffles.
This is a rant about the raised in a barn degenerates of suburban glenview.
So, just so you know, i am the kind of girl to wait until the last possible minute to put gas in my car. I am frequently late for everything, and basically, it is below me (kidding. sort of.) So, by the time last night rolled around, i left work desperately needing gas, as the empty light had turned on half way through my commute TO work. Obviously, this was a fueling EMERGENCY.
I pull into the Shell that i pass to get onto the highway, and naturally, every pump is occupied, because my life sucks. I wait, ever so patiently for a pump to open up, and when one does, i casually direct my car towards the pump, when someone ZOOMS into the spot at 300 miles per hour, cutting me off. Are you F***ING kidding me??? UGH! so rude. I back up, and wait for the next one. Another one opens up, but its on the opposite side of my gas tank, so i commence the awkward ballet of turning my stupid car around so i can back in. Meanwhile, someone ZOOMS in and takes the spot that i am very obviously backing into. At this point, my ginger rage is in full effect. I give it one last chance, and pull around to the other side to a spot that just opened up. This time, not only am i cut off, but i am cut off by someone who isn't even putting gas in their car, they are just stealing the spot to run in and buy cigarettes, and this spot was closer than the epic walk from the open parking spot less than 100 feet away.
At this point i just started screaming and laying on the horn, having a full fledged nuclear meltdown within the confines of my car. I didn't know whether to cry, or to start ramming my car into everyone around me, Towanda style.
I ended up leaving, and going to another gas station, but i barely made it, and those rude, self-absorbed, lexus driving suburbanites basically ruined my evening. Should the suburb of glenview suddenly burst into flames, i would not be sad. Not one bit.
