    Back in the 70’s when we had to so-called gas crisis, we were limited to buying fuel on odd and even days related to our license plate. The lines were long and frustrating. One day while in line a women decided to break into the line ahead of other, and then needed help putting fuel into her car. The guy behind her being frustrated by her actions decided he would be a gentlemen and help her. He filled her tank, but at the last moment in a gesture of kindness install HIS locking gas cap on her car. Ah such sweet justice in a me ME FIRST world.
