So here we are again. The weekend is over and I did drag my sorry a$$ to work today. Even though I'd rather have stayed home to enjoy the sunny weather we're having. It is incredibly nice out.
On my way to work in my teeny tiny sheeny shiny brand new car I heard a suggestion from a German politician. He said that he would like to introduce a four day work week. A FOUR DAY WORK WEEK. YEP YOU READ THAT RIGHT. Amen to that I was thinking but there had to be a hook. Before I could swerve off the road after my sorry attempt at a victory dance the speaker went on to say that it would also mean working longer hours during those four days. Ehem no. Nope, uh uh, nein. Sorry this is not gonna happen. The politican's reasoning? The rising costs of fuel.
Gas is expensive. I am nearly about to cry everytime I need to stop at a gas station. Next thing you know they'll be asking you for your firstborn.
The costs of filling up your car in Germany lately
1l = 0,26 gal = € 1. 52 = $ 2,35
1gal = 3,79l = € 5,40 = $ 8,35
Seeing it written out like that makes it all the more painful. Eff me but this is crazy!!!
Sooner or later this will be bitter reality.
Please excuse me if you can't hear me over my massive sobs. I better go and cry in my corner for a while :)
How was your weekend and how much does gas cost where you live?
