EMEGENCY: Tank leaking, NEED HELP ASAP

Im at WORK (again)... and my tank is leaking.
Fuel is LITERALLY dripping between the two parts i circled in the pic.
Should there be a rubber seal (o-ring) in between because I didnt find any.

I dont wanna ride it with a fuel leak BUT i also dont wanna leave it at work.
help pls.. thanks

I don't know how far you have to ride to get home, but for a quick fix tape it up and wrap it with some rags. Maybe that will be enough to get it home and asses the problem farther. Just an idea. Good luck though.
