I have a funny story that you might like! I've always driven muscle cars, I now have a 1969 GTO. I was on a date where we ate and drank at a Mexican restaurant. So on the way back to my place I started getting violent gas pains. I didn't know what to do but I knew I had to do it fast!! So as I was driving I started bumping the gas pedal as if the car was bucking or running out of gas. Being a stick the car jumped quite a bit making my date inquire to what was wrong with the car. In a confident voice I said "oh damn, I know what's wrong, hold on for a second I've got to pull over and fix it." So I pulled the GTO over raised the hood and looked as if I was working on the engine. I then unloaded an air biscuit that could stop a Boeing 747!! I stood there until I thought the threat was over and so it wouldn't follow me to the car! Wouldn't you know it a couple miles down the road it hit me again. So pumping the gas (so to speak) I once again pulled the car over and repeated step 2 until I felt OK again. She never knew (as far as I know!) and everything turned out fine. Please feel free to use my idea as a few of my friends said they wish they could have thought of something like that!!!
Maybe she was doing the same thing IN the car when you got out!!
