I stopped at the gas station on the highway for gas,
Me: can I pump my own gas please?
Kid that worked at the gas station: sure I don't care!
Kid: shook his head up and down and said nice! Wanna race?
Me: what do you have?
Kid: don't worry about it!!!!
Kid: When did u get it?
Me: a year ago, its a year old!
Kid: did u buy it like this or did u do all the work?
Me: I did! Well he did (as I pointed to my boyfriend!)
Kid: how much boost?
Me: close to 23
I started talking to my boyfriend saying I was really trying to shoot a flame again but it wasn't working. So the kid interrupts...
Kid: well with an exhaust like that its always gonna backfire going downhill!
Me: I was going uphill; that's when it backfired with a flame.
Kid: nice! Downshift!?
Me: no upshift!
Kid: wow nice... Flames are always good!!!
