Why do these things always happen to me?

This morning, like most mornings, I was running late to work. I knew that my car was a bit low on petrol, but seeing as I had a client to see after lunch, I thought I'd go fill up before I go. I actually parked in a car park that was near the service station. When I went to get my car, what little petrol was left must have evaporated into nothing and my car refused to start. Luckily I had made it to the parking lot this morning!! I was really embarrassed having to walk over to the service station to buy a jerry can and fill it with petrol. I thought that I'd just stride right in and just buy it without any explanation. The attendant might just think that I was buying it for my lawn mower. When I went to pay, the attendant goes to me "So you broke down somewhere did you?" Ugh! How did he know??

    My Bug's wiper is broken. Apparently the wiper motor may have burnt out. My mechanic is ordering in the parts (like for 2 months already) and I've been driving like a dork w/o my wiper on but only RainX on the screen !
