Missing: Mr. Ga Scap

An open white door and a silver inside lining. What happened to the ugly black cap that covered that?

After work today, I realized that I had forgotten my gas cap on my car, along with closing the door.

I went back to the gas station and there's been no sign of the black wonder.
So my scenarios go:

A) Someone took it. Why would anyone want an extra gas cap? Yeah, to replace theirs if they ever lost it. Note to self: Pick up any wayside gas caps, no matter what the make or model.*

*This could result in more garbage picking and/or extremist stowaway tendencies. Approach practice with caution.

B)It fell off of the car somewhere on my way to work. From here to Greensburg, if anyone sees a wayside black thing along the road (that is a gas cap) please pick it up; I miss my friend... (I'm getting attached to an inanimate again, someone smack me)

C)It was thrown away. Now, who would do that? Some really clean person that just couldn't handle the fact that a perfectly good gas cap was sitting along the road somewhere and had to pick it up--never mind that someone may be looking for it.

Wow. I just became an evil Disney character.--Sorry for the upstage, Cruella. :)

I do wonder what could happen if you went without a gas cap for a prolonged period... Would your car burst into flames like in a Schwarzenegger cinema moment? Or would your car, mundanely, not pass the state inspection or emissions? Most likely the latter.

Time to go beg my dad for his car expertise. What's going on with my world? July--how I long for thee...

Hah. I just got back from the gas station, and your story made me paranoid, so I double-checked my own. For once, I wasn't absentminded.

I think I know what to get you for your b-day, now. :P Just kidding.

Reminds me of an episode of Rocko's Modern Life (a NickToon from moons ago). It played out that a squirrel had the gas cap (if I remember correctly... or at least it was a small rodent of some sort). And there was a major public incident to get the cap back to Rocko. Haha, I love those old cartoons.

Hope you find it, 'cause that seems kind of important!
