I have always been a glass-half-full kind of guy. on top of that, I am excited to have the air that is in the top half of the glass because, well, we all need air.

So, it is hard for me to watch people, like the lady in the video below, pump gas into plastic shopping bags then tie them up in the hopes of taking them home.

She's even spilling gas, and one of the bags rips as she's trying to secure it.

As you know this behavior is all due to a pipeline being shut down by hackers. Despite this, there did not have to be a gas shortage. Much like the great toilet paper crisis of 2020, this was all due to unnecessary hoarding.

So, here come people with big Tupperware bins and plastic shopping bags in the hopes of taking as much gas home as they can afford.

But where do they plan to store it? Did the lady with the shopping bags simply think she would leave the bags of gas in the garage?

If she is married imagine the look on her husband's face when she shows him what she's done.

That is providing the gas even makes it home. Most of that liquid will spill all over her trunk the moment she starts driving.

Let's not forget the vapors. See it's not really the liquid gas that goes BOOM! It's the vapors. That's what will fill the car and then explode. The fire burns everything after.

I know I don't need to tell you this. I'm just venting here.

I bet she's glad her county did not ban plastic shopping bags. Imagine the trouble she would have had trying to fill paper.
