Overheard at the gas station

Chichimama: "Fill it up with regular please.*"

Gas station attendent: "We're out."

Chichimama: "Uh, OK. Fill it up with plus then."

C: "Mom, why are they out of 'fill it up with regular?' Why do we have to get 'fill it up with plus?'"

Chichimama: "Huh? Oh! It's not 'fill it up with regular,' it's just regular, really."

C: "Then why do you always say 'fill it up with regular?'"

Chichimama: "Well, because that's just how you order gas I guess."

C: "Huh. If you say so."

*Yes, I live in NJ in case you hadn't figured it out by now. I love that I don't have to pump my own gas. Love. It.
