Mr.Shiftlet was still on the road but suddenly his car stopped at an abandoned gas station, Then he soon realized that his tank had become completely empty so he began to look in every pump to see if they had some gas to spare.Thankfully all the pumps he put in his tank gave a fair amount of gas and he ended up with a quarter tank. He thought to himself: “This amount won't take me but so far, but I guess there ain't nothin to lose.” So he continued on his journey. Finally his car had came to a definite stop but way closer to town than he thought. He saw about half a mile away some houses so he ran down to get some help with his car. The closest house to him was a boarding home so he went inside and yelled for help.
