I do believe Maxine is missing a few. A lot of people are sitting on it. Some people are talking through it.
Unfortuately, most of us are getting something shoved up it!
Who's operating that heavy equipment that's being driven so viciously along the Hershey Highway? Is taking the Cocoa Causeway some kind of short cut? I don't know about you, but I consider the Poop Parkway an exit ramp, not a friggin' expressway. I want Rectal Road closed to that kind of traffic. Sphincter Street should be made one way. Stay away from Anus Avenue too!
Of course, I am referring to the ever-escalating price of gasoline. For the past several weeks I have been filling up on a half a tank. The way it's going, it won't be long before I have to consider topping off at three-quarters of a tank. Just as surely as I am jamming that nozzle into my truck, I'm being assaulted from behind.
I have found a little bit of relief by comparing prices at the pumps of the local service stations near my home. I came across a site that has proven quite handy in this regard. If you are not familiar with the site, you should check it out. Gas Price Watch lets you monitor the price of gasoline in your area. After you've toured the site a bit, it is easy to use. You can enter your zip code or town name and state to get a list of your local gas prices at the various stations. The site will also provide you with a street map of the stations locations.
You can also become a member of the site. The prices are provided by individual drivers who post the prices as they come across them. Signing up allows you to also report the prices you find. I have found differences in gas prices ranging from two cents to nine cents this past week. Last week I found a station 12 cents cheaper than others in my area. Planning a trip out of town to a place unfamiliar to you? Type in the zip code and/or town name and find the cheapest gas there. You can also check out the stations along the route.
In closing, I have to let off some more steam because my ass hole is sore! If they aren't shoving it up our collective asses for one thing, they'll find something else.
