The Best Oil Change Ever!

I had to get my oil changed yesterday, which normally, I hate to do. However, yesterday I was met with a surprise. During the time in which I waited, I was escorted to the "lounge" where they had FREE MS. PACMAN! OMG! I have blisters from playing for an hour.

I used to spend about $5 in quarters on a Saturday at Big Lots when I was younger going "wacca wacca" and chasing ghosts.

This Indian guy was waiting, and saw me playing, and was jealous that he didn't know that there was a game there, so I flipped it to 2 players, which I think made his day. ;)

Dating update: So I IM'ed the guy, said I'd like to see him before he left for a work trip next week. I think we're planning to meet before he goes, but we're just trying to work out our schedules.

Geez, my oil change place only has old magazines.

Now, if you tell us that the date involves Ms. Pacman, I'll start to worry a little. ;-)

woo hoo, good for you! And, I'm sure you'll get some kind of karmic reward for letting that guy play Ms. Pacman with you! :)

The dealership now has a half hour oil change. Its the best thing ever, because I trust them more then jiffy lube.

way to go in taking a chance!!

"wacca wacca" Oh the memories! That sounds very cool. I usually take my car to WalMart for the oil change so I can go shopping while they do it. The only thing that's a bummer is that they don't call you when it's done. They have my cell phone number, but they don't call. So here I am spending tons of money in the store while I'm waiting. Maybe that's the idea?

Great news on the IM guy! I hope you have a great 2nd date. I've heard that it helps to do an activity on a date. Dh & I went to an Amusement Park (Busch Gardens Tampa) for our second date and I think that's why we're still together...that and he can't live without me. ;o)

Major score!! I let Gord take care of getting the care serviced ... I've got better things to do. And he seems to enjoy it.
