how hard is it to get some gas?

for me the answer would have to be very this week.
attempt #1 about 3-4 gallons in the pump reads error and stops okay fine but I am not going to play pull around and try another pump it'll do for now
attempt #2 the gas station is I suppose going out of business all of the pumps are covered
attempt #3 at a grocery store tried and tried and tried to get my shopping card to scan so I could save 10 cents that didn't work so tried and tried and tried just to get gas but the evil machine wanted my shopping card information finally I caved & went to the clerk as instructed by evil machine. 87 year old clerk cannot help from booth but must shuffle over to the pump and try and try and try to get my shopping card to scan it does finally I begin to pump gas just after the first gallon goes in the handle or something breaks and no gas will pump. I drive away in disgust
attempt #4 successful & I was finally able to fill the tank

where are all the game shows?

boy daytime tv is horrible and you'd think with all of the channels at my disposal I could have found something to watch this week. I miss old games shows, Sale of the Century, Card sharks the no Whammy one even Wheel of Fortune remember the Chuck Woolery version where you would take your winnings and go shopping at the end of the round?
I did manage to catch up on all my DVR'd shows and I rediscovered West Wing. I really liked that show when it was on and enjoyed watching a few this past week while home nursing this whatever this was. I was disappointed when the show went off the air I had hoped maybe they wee going to let the republican character so adeptly played by Alan Alda win and spend he next administration portraying the other side of the coin.
