Buying petrol is fun!

I thought I'd swing by BP on the way home to get some petrol before it gets even MORE expensive. I'll be taking out a second mortgage for the next tank-full...

Anyway, I fill up, and stroll into the shop where a lovely young lady smiles at me and asks how she can help.

"Pump number one," I say, flashing a quick smile in response (it never hurts to flirt with the shop girl).

"Do you have a Nectar card?" She asked, wiping a stray hair from her eyes.

"No," I replied.

Then she looked at me, tilted her head a little, and said:

"Would you like me to give you one?"

And that, dear reader, is where I ask you to write your own punchline.

Sometimes, it's just too tempting....... :)

"Why, yes please young lady. A nectar card would be splendid".

Or have I got the wrong end of the stick? Again. You know, they really should label these sticks 'Right end' and 'Wrong end'. It'd save an awful lot of confusion... : )

I think you're spot on - I'll get a nectar card next time I pop by. I'm sure they're very useful.
