Default Ran out of gas today:( how was ur day

I had a quarter of a tank and when i left work i was in b/w that and E. Knowing me i said i can make it but what happened I drove anyway... well as i come up on the toll booth i was on 1-290 going east it cuts out on me and i pull over to the shoulder. I get out the car and do the "black people trick" i shake the back of the car get back in and drove off doing 100 mph till i ran outta gas at the exit 20 miles from my house so i coast up the exit and into a gas station (mind u the gas station didnt even have a sign and it was jus bein built so i called my wife to be and ask her to bring me a gas can and i fill that up once and tried startin the car and it didnt work so i try the "black people trick again" and i had enough gas to go half block to the other gas station and fill up with $36.00 @ 18.165 gallons

How was ur day today guys??

dang bro, thats tough. Many times i've gone around exit ramp loops and the gas is low enough that i got swerve a little, then it kicks back in, but i have yet to run all the way out. Glad you had someone that could help ya out.

I hate you had that trouble. My son ran out of gas today too. He sputtered into the parking lot at work.
I had a great day. The bonnie is running like a champ and I took her across the state line for a nice long ride.
