Canon Powershot G2. Made black & white in Photoshop

I have been driving my little car for almost 2 years. You would think I'd be used to all the little noises it makes. But every time it beeps at me to tell me I'm running out of gas, it scares me half to death. In that split second between wondering what the hell that beep is and realizing what it actually is, I picture all the warning lights going off and me leaping from the car as it bursts into a fiery ball of flame.

And you know, it shouldn't freak me out. I check the gas gauge, I notice that it's getting closer to zero and that I will have to get gas soon. And still, every single time, I gasp and look at the dashboard in horror to see what's wrong.

I thought I'd get used to it eventually, but after 2 years, I think I'm destined to freaking out every time I'm at an 1/8 of a tank.
