T-25 : Clicky Gas
When I stopped to get gas tonight there was something seemingly wrong with the pump nozzle. When I tried to notch it into place it would run for a split-second then click off. It was frustrating. I ended up having to hold it by hand with slightly less pressure than would have allowed me to click it into the first notch. Then I got to thinking how dependent I've become on this luxury. Unless I'm mistaken, I remember the days back in the 1970s before the notch was created that I'd have to hold the nozzle until I heard the tank getting full; kind of like a reverse-Doppler effect. When the notch was created it was fantastic! Am I dreaming? Or did this really happen? Someone restore my sanity.
