“Our underwriting department determines that,” I replied. Then I asked for her license plate number. Verifying her information, I said, “NMF? Is that ‘N’ as in Nancy, ‘M’ as in Mary, and ‘F’ as in Frank?”

“Well … yes,” she said. “But could you please tell your underwriters that it’s also ‘N’ as in Not, ‘M’ as in My, and ‘F’ as in Fault?”

After finishing an out-of-town errand, I discovered that my car wouldn’t start because it was out of gas.

A passer-by told me there was a service station a half-mile away, so I took a gas can from the trunk and trudged the distance in the sweltering sun.

The attendant filled my two-gallon can, and I lugged it back and poured the gas into the tank. But when I tried to unlock the car door, it wouldn’t open. Just then, I noticed an identical old car parked a short distance away. That was my car; I had filled a stranger’s gas tank.

Wearily I walked back to the station. “You know,” the attendant suggested helpfully, “instead of walking back and forth to fill the tank from the can, you could put a couple of gallons in the tank and then drive the car here.”
