Major Accomplishment Today

Today, I accomplished something great. Something so extraordinary, that I found myself patting my own self on the back.

Something so huge, I found myself saying to myself, "Self, you done good today, I'm real proud of you!"

Something that I've been trying to do for a very long time, but could never quite get there. You know that thing that keeps itself just out of reach you think you'll never catch it, or face it, or become one with it?

Well I did it. I owned it today, yes I did. And I feel like shouting from the rooftops as loudly as I can...

I STOPPED THE GAS PUMP AT EXACTLY $50.00!

NOT $50.01! NOT $50.02!

BUT AT $50.00 EXACTLY.

I know, you feel it too. Isn't it great? I just can't help but smile. I OWNED that gas pump today. I stopped that b&tch at $50.00 exactly.

I showed it who's boss!!!!

For many gas tank fill ups, that pump has taken advantage of me, adding in those extra few cents. No matter how quickly I move my hands - pull, release, pull, release, pull, release - the frustration was starting to get to me.

Score one for the Mom today!

Gas pump had the last laugh because I drove off before shutting the gas flap on the car...DOH!!

I have a thought for you. It would be great to run the same series after a year and see the differences in our greatest accomplishments. May be it’s the same or may be all together, it’s different. But it would be good to see how our views towards life and accomplishments have changed with the time. To see more info please visit http://essayswriters.org/academic-writing/
