Weekend Nights

People are always asking me if gas is going to go up or down. Or of course WHY it went up or down. I always explain that I am just the weekend night guy. Do people really expect a person standing behind the cash register at two o'clock in the morning to know how much gas is going to cost this summer? Like the guy who literally throws his money at me every time he comes in and gripes about the price. Every time. If I could predict the price of gas I'd be making much much more money playing the stock market or gaming at a casino or something.

I don't even know why the whole world isn't rioting over BP and the gulf. Why? Don't people realise how serious this is? How many things are going to disappear because of this. Plants, animals, jobs, ways of life. So much is at stake. Images of The Lorax keep flashing through my mind. Must everything die before we take action?

But, hey, what do I know? I'm just the weekend night guy.
