I took my car in to the dealer on Thursday as I had been having problems filling up the gas tank recently.  Every time I would pull up to the pump and insert the hose, it would click off after getting about a gallon in.  This happened every time I got gas for about the last 2 months and at various gas stations. It kept cutting off so much, I haven’t been able to fill the tank up, so I took it in.

When I dropped it off at the dealer, the service rep said it might be a problem with the net that’s in the tank.  When he called me Friday afternoon to let me know that my car was ready, he asked if I was sitting down before he told me the problem.  He said that they found a dead spider in the tank, along with multiple spider webs.

Here’s the write up:

As I paid the $10 charge, to cover the gas they put in to confirm the problem, the cashier said she has not heard of anything like this happening before, and wondered how the spider even got into the gas tank.  I smiled, and asked her, “Does this make me Spiderman?”

So, How You Doin?

    nice post Joel–it kept me reading. I’m surprised they didn’t charge you for taking out the spider too…

      thanks Michael…if you like being kept reading, wait till April, when I post the 6 page letter I sent to the CEO of Honeywell telling him exactly what happened to my brother and asking why the family (us) of a 3 year HR project manager never received any condolences from his employer, while at the same time that company supported the estranged wife who held his body hostage in an attempt to extort his life insurance…
