is having your car run out gas as you pull into a gas station which has also run out of gas.
Yes, gas stations can run out of gas.
And yes, this really happened to me this week.
Okay, so I wasn't completely out of gas. But had I left to go to another gas station, I would have run out on the way. In the middle of the road. No one wants to be that person who runs out of gas in the middle of the road.
All I could do was laugh.
Sometimes that's all you can do when life throws ridiculous curveballs like this at you. I'm learning that I shouldn't take anything too seriously, that sometimes I just need to laugh at my own rotten luck and get over it.
So what did I do?
Luckily, a giant truck full of gasoline arrived with gas. But it was too late, the damage was already done. I was already an hour late for work. But my boss thought this was as hilarious as I did, and it ended up not being a big deal.
But there's your laugh for the week, friends. I have a much better appreciation of irony after this.
