"I need gas." (Pull in. Pumping...). "Hmmm. I'm a little thirsty. I think I'll run in to get something to drink." Done. Simple.
Me now (working in my new non-profit job as a mommy):
"I need gas. Shoot. Gas is expensive and J.C. doesn't get paid until Friday. I wonder how little I can put in the tank to get me to Friday? I'm thirsty, but I really shouldn't spend the extra buck to get something to drink since I have stuff at home. Don't want to waste the money. Besides, the baby is in the back seat and that would be a pain to haul the carseat in." Then I drive off, thankful for my $20 of gas, but with fingers crossed that it will last until Friday :).
Not quite as simple.
Here's my adorable little complicator.
Layla looooves him!
