Nothing terribly funny involving my boat, but....

Two weeks ago I am filling up the boat. Across the island was a new Tahoe with a very attractive blond filing it. After a few minutes I see her husband come out of the station screaming at her to turn the pump off. At first I thought there was a real problem and I start looking for fire. He then goes on a 5 minute hissy fit calling her every name in the book for.....

Drum roll please....

Putting more than $40.00 of gas in the tank. I about fell over. Here I was putting over $200.00 in a boat and just got done putting $90 in the diesel and he is loosing it over spending more than $40 at the gas pump?

A few years back in Lauderdale, I pulled into a gas station on land, there were a few cop cars around this small cuddy cabin on a trailer being pulled by a small pickup. They were trying to break up a fight between the guy who owned the boat and the gas station manager. Apparently the guy who owned the boat got caught emptying out his waste tank with the station's pay vacuum! WTF was he thinking!

I was at the gas station on land the other day and a guy in a little old escort, asked how bad I had it when filling up my F-350 truck. I said not bad. He was amazed and could not figure out why $100.00 worth of fuel was not a big deal. He got it though when I said "this is nothing you should see the fuel bill on what it pulls" then I pointed at the 42FT Fountain behind it......BZ

My favorite was at Put in Bay about 4 years ago. I was low on fuel so I decided to get a little before we left to make it back. Well the guy next me fueling up his brand new 40+ft crusier can't figure out why the boat is taking so much fuel........................











































He was filling the Fresh water tank............that had the drain valve open .............needless to say his bilge had a gallon or two of fuel in it.

IS THIS THE SAME BOAT THAT BLEW UP WHEN THEY TURNED ON THE BILGE PUMP?

I was filling up my old scarab once down in Alligator Alley right before we started heading down to the Keys.....dude with all but 3 teeth missing comes up and starts asking questions about the boat...engines, HP, etc....then goes on to tell me how his nephew has a supercharged AND twin turbocharged BBC in a small jet boat I just smiled and nodded.....

Another time it was the first run of the season and we stopped at the local gas station before hitting the harbor....filled up with like $320 in gas (was alot cheaper back then) and the lady when she saw the total about fainted! Said no one has ever bought more gas in one shot....told us we could have a few free drinks... I was like....screw the drinks knock the prics down a bit instead.
