Forty or so years ago my bride an I spent five years in Maine . One winter day EVIL said that her car was running funny , I sez next time that you get gas have the attendant pour a can of Dry Gas in the tank . She returns , madder than Hades and said the guys laughed at her . I sez what did ya ask for ,She sez what you told me , POWDERED GAS !
Fast forward till this morn , Evil is going to Winn Dixie . I sez stop at Ace hardware and pick me up a pack of ten Romex connectors .
Same deal , she comes home mad , mad .mad . They laughed at her , she asked for Romance Connectors !
Please explain to the younger set what a ' gas station attendant 'is .

Those are funny. and there are a tons of like stories out there.

I guess I'm not younger
I know what a Gas Station Attendant is (IN the old days it was the person who pumped the gas or you .. Today it's the person behind the bullet proof glass that takes yoru credit card)

I also knwo what Dry Gas is (Denatured alcohol) not somethign you need to add now days since they add it at the refrienery. (E-10 .. Well Dry gas was closer to E-1) and it was a MIRIALE product if your car needed it.


Home is where I park it.

We in New Jersey still have gas station attendants. They are the guys who pump our gas while yacking on the cell phone with some other attendant at another station, under the big warning sign about the dangers of using a cell phone near the gas pumps.

Isn't it true that 90% of the conflict in this world is due to misunderstanding?

I don't see sufficient evidence to support this. I see many more obvious reasons.
"misunderstanding" implies that there was, somewhere "...the power to make experience intelligible by applying concepts and categories".

Kind of a funny story from my BIL that was an attendant.

One day a lady pulled into the station, during winter. Asked him to fill the oil and check tire pressure. Filled the tank, and gently explained that his station only had summer air. Putting summer air into tires during winter could be dangerous, as it might lead to tire failure. But if she was to go down the road a short ways, they have winter air. The lady thanked him for the valuable information and went on her way. A few minutes later his buddy at the other station called asking, "What the hell is winter and summer air?!"

BTW the temp was close to -30C at the time.
