strangly interesting

Thursday, October 4, 2007

This receipt tape was bent on escape. This is the length that had crept out of the gas pump before I got there. I tore it off and stuffed it in my pocket, half thinking that the pump was probably broken, and I was going to embarrass myself by trying to use it. But it was the only one available without some crazy maneuvering, so I tried it.

And as I pumped, out of the corner of my eye, I could see the receipt tape veeerrry sloooowwly creeping out of the slot. All by itself. With nothing printing on it.

The fact that I found this weird and interesting enough to take a picture and then write two paragraphs about it probably just goes to show something...but I'm not sure what.
