I have ferocious cold for which I fully blame the SDMB karmawise as it started the day after I posted in this thread.
Anyway, because of my lack of normal mental acuity due to this awful cold (I’ve got to blame something for this embarassing stupidity) I neglected to remove the hose from my car’s gas intake and drove away. The “Ka-lunk clank” of the hose being pulled out and hitting the ground, alerted me that I had done a very. bad. thing. I got out and looked up at the quick release connector dangling from the pump’s upper section and the connector part in my hand, and did not see how I could put it back on by hand (I tried). I apologized to the clerk and left my business card.
What’s the monetary damage for this stupidity likely to be? Just a new connector or more? The house and handle looked fine. The connector also looked fine (ie not sheared or torn) just “dis-connected”.
Oh …and “Whaaaahhh! Whaaaaahh!.. Snurfle…Whhaaahh!”
