has anyone ever drove off with the GAS PUMP still in their car?

Well, I certainly did this past weekend. The gas pump unhinged itself as I drove off and it smashed my rear windshield.

I swear... my friends are convinced I'm turning into the next Britney Spears.

:Push:

Aw man, I've only seen those in YouTube videos. I'm sorry! Will it be expensive to replace the back windshield, or maybe your insurance can cover it? ITA with VuittonsLover. That's a NICE car!

no....but I've run into a gas pump (i suck at measuring distances). Sorry about your windshield! Is it covered by your insurance?

Oh yeah, I can so relate. DH teases me about parallel parking by echolocation (when I hear metal crushing I know to stop and adjust).

I'm so sorry that happened to your new car! I'm glad you got a good price for it though.

Something I remember my dad telling me when I started driving was to always look in my mirror after getting gas to make sure the pump was out. I still do this.

Oh man! Sorry to hear! It hasn't happened to me yet but it's something I could see myself doing!
