 (Stella, yours was the last text I sent on it, while waiting in line for gas, so if you texted back I never got it)  

I haven't checked my phone since I texted you so I haven't seen any you may have sent back yet....I was going to blame the first one on Migs if you seemed mad at me  Tongue


You may have to steam clean your car in that area several times.

I was thinking I would soap it up again and then use the shop vac and keep repeating?  My brother told me when he gets his gas can filled up he takes his recycling bin and lines it with newspaper and puts it in there just in case.

 Next time you are on your roof you should do that thing with the hooks you wanted to do in case you fall.

The curse was in full swing last night!!   Angry

So... I got gas and I also filled up my 1gal so I would have it ready for the snowblower. I, in my infinate wisdom, thought it would be fine sitting in the front passenger seat.  Wrong!!  I think I overfilled it and the nozzle had lost the cap years ago so I believe some gas came out of the nozzle, onto my coat sleeve, into my seat, and my purse was on the seat so that got gassed too!  I noticed my sleeve was soaked, smelled it, and thought "stuff me in a beer bottle, light it and I'm a Molotov cocktail!!"  My seat was soaked, I had to role the windows down so I wouldn't fumigate myself.   When I got home I soaked the seat and left the windows down in the garage to try and get the smell out.   Roll Eyes     I took off my coat and threw it in the wash, then dumped everything out of my purse to try and save that.  Well, almost everything out, I left my cell phone in the pocket so that got submerged.  As of this morning it will turn on, the screen is blank but it will ring and I can answer it!  I think it is toast and I will have to get a new one.  (Stella, yours was the last text I sent on it, while waiting in line for gas, so if you texted back I never got it)  So, let's see, I have a seat/car that smells like gas, a purse that smells like gas, and a cell phone that I should just pull the plug on.  I rode to work with the windows down and snow blowing in. I think I will douse the seat again and take the shop vac to it and try and suck the water/gas out of it.  

 Oh yea, and short hair!   Angry   go me!!   Angry

Dayam!  That really stinks (no pun intended  Grin)  Makes my day yesterday seem uneventful  Roll Eyes  Snowblower BROKE (not worth fixing I've been told) on the 2nd pass down the 300 ft driveway  Angry  The good news is, we get a new one with hand warmers!  Cheesy  I hate shopping under pressure.

Sometimes if you take the battery off and put the phone and battery in a bag of rice, that can salvage a wet device.

I had two other people tell me about the rice.  Probably too late now?  I have take the battery, cover, and sim card out.     Princess I fear every year that mine blower is going to go and do it at the bottom of the driveway!

  I just went outside and shoveled out the INSIDE of my car.   Roll Eyes   We are getting pummeled with blowing snow and I had left my 2 front windows down a bit because of the gas and it just hit me that the snow was probably blowing into my car!  Now I have 2 wet seats and it still smells like gas!

Did you not read the gas can and see where it says "do not fill above this line?"

Sucks, but yes even after I've read that myself, I have done the same thing minus the huge aftermath you had.

Transporting gas is always tricky. Even in a contained unit as the gas trucks they come in (liquid in general is hard to transport), it can be dangerous. Not as in exploding, but that is always a possibility, but as in how do you get it from point A to point B? Or where do you store it, trunk, seat, do I hold it? What happens when you go around a turn?

Gas sloshes around, and when you go through a turn, it moves with the inertia of the car and can spill at that point.

I will use one of my bigger gas cans next time and only fill it 1/2 way, and leave it in the back in a recyling bin or something just in case.  


  Or I will just ask you to bring it over!   Wink

good episode!!!   

It seems like once you get the smell of gas in your head you can't stop smelling it.  Even after I showered I still smelled like it. Even IN the shower I smelled it!  I put shampoo up my nose to get rid of it!

I now have rice all over the floor, but my cell is in a bag of rice seeing if that will help. And I am NOT vacumming it up tonight.  Angry   I can dial out and recieve calls now, the screen is blank so it might take me a few tries to get the right number. Only took 4 tries to get through to my home number.  Tongue     

Stells, did you text me back?  'Cause when I turned the phone on it did the beepy thing that means I either have a text or vm and since I can't see the screen I don't know which! 

Maybe I could donate my cell phone to the blind since the screen not working wouldn't matter?     (kidding!! but you know you laughed!!!  Grin)
