An embarrassing thing happened to me earlier today. Took the scooter out to run some errands and ran out of gas. It happened while we were all at a stop and when the light turned green, scooter lost power. The cars behind me begin to honk and I had to get off and wave them all to go ahead while I wheeled the scooter over to the sidewalk. I tried a few times to start it and it wouldn't. I telephoned my husband and he told me to wait and he would send one of his men over help me out.
While I'm waiting I Facetimed our fellow GV'er Jenjen and instead of being sympathetic she thought it was very funny. "I'm surprised you even knew how to start that thing" she said.
Yeah, thanks a lot, my friend.
The guy my husband sends over arrives. He didn't even try to start the thing. He looks at the gauges and says, "Ma'am, no gas".
I felt my face turning red from embarrassment. I've been riding for years and this shouldn't happen. I gave the guy some money and he got gas for me and I was off once again to do my errands.
So that was the highlight of my day. Ho-hum.
