wine by the color

During my recent California travels, I stopped at a gas station to fill up the rental car before I returned it to my friends at Hertz. Unfortunately, the receipt printer was broken and no one was actually working at the station (truly, there was not a soul in sight), so I had to explain to the folks in the accounting department why I was missing the receipt.

Fast forward to the Oregon/Washington jaunt. I again stopped for gas en roue to the airport, to the tune of $30.50. Anything above $25 requires a receipt. When I filled out my expense report yesterday, I realized I didn't have that receipt. A quick search of the memory bank provided the answer as to why and led to this note being written on my expense report...

So this time, I don't have a receipt because I accidentally stopped for gas in the hood. In my haste to get out of said hood due to some potentially criminal goings-on at the station, I forgot to print the receipt.

I doubt they see much shtick in expense reports, so I'm just trying to brighten their day. But it was NOT a nice neighborhood.

    The hood in Oregon?!?! C'mon!
    That's like worrying about walking the streets alone at night in Short Hills!
    What, were you afraid someone might jaywalk?

    Oh no, there's no hood in Oregon. This was in Seattle, where there is definitely a hood. Or at least a group of kids who wish they lived in the hood and are thus turning the local Sunoco station into their version of the hood.

    Flag on the play. Illegal procedure. At last check, any town in Oregon (Eugene and Salem, included) can not be considered "the 'hood."
