Friendship Tested by Fuel Fiasco ⛽😠

Our protagonist found herself in a sticky situation when she swapped cars with her best friend's husband for a day to accommodate an extra passenger on their theme park trip. After returning the car without filling the tank, the husband was furious, claiming it's a known fact that you return a borrowed car with a full tank. However, she argues that they simply swapped cars for the day, and she didn't expect him to fill her tank either. Will this fuel fiasco drive a wedge between these long-time friends, or can they find a way to resolve the issue? Let's see what the internet has to say about this gas-guzzling drama... 💬
