I know you are never supposed to leave kids in the car but how about when u are getting gas. Do u run in the store and pay for gas quickly or drag them out with u? I need to get some so bad and left my debit card at home but getting the kids out will be quite an adventure

If I pay at the pump they're in the car. If I go inside they always come with me.

I would probably run in real quick, honestly. I only ever pay at the pump though.

I don't think its anything wrong with trying to get gas and they are in the car but as long as you don't take to long with my kids I wait till the line is low then I go in and get the gas and hurry out and I also try to find a pump that is close so that I can see my car though the window while I am in there paying for my gas but I make sure that It wont take that long

I either take them in with me, or I stop at the HEB by our house ad go the the pumps where you pay through a window outside and use the pump RIGHT next to it. Where I pay, it's less than 5 feet from the car and I can see the kids at all times, so I feel comfortable with that. But if I have to go inside a building to pay at all, just bite the bullet and take them in. It's a hassle, but I'd rather deal with that then something bad happening.

I run in. I even run in to Dunks to get coffee. Taking them out for 3 minutes,, turns into 15 because they want everything in the store,and then they don't want to get back into the car.
