Petrol Pump Conspiracy

Petrol Pump Conspiracy

Inanimate objects often conspire against me. I will never forget my first forced use of pay-at-pump technology at an Asda just outside Stoke-on-Trent on a cold and lonely night. I've got the hang of it now, and prefer pay-at-pump to talking to a human.

Today I wasn't in the mood to fill up to the top so thought I would have one of the numbers "land on 20". I like round numbers, and I'm good at landing on them. But this time I had a problem.

This was the worst possible outcome. I can't even cope with the TV on an odd number.

 
Tedious about the author bit

I write about media, exploring, heavy machinery and lists. I produce radio with an attitude accurately described as "amusingly surly".

I can't tell you how many terrible ideas I have had. But it's a lot of terrible ideas.

PS. I am not a travel blogger. But I do travel and I do blog.

Legally bland
