It’s A Gas

When I first moved to Oregon, I felt slightly insulted that the gas stations are all full-serve because of state law. I had a very “I can pump my own damn gas, thank you very much!” attitude.

A month later, when I went to pick up Vinz, when I got to California and had to get gas, I looked at the prices and thought “… so I have to pay $0.20/gallon more for the ‘privilege’ of pumping my own gas?! That blows.”

Today as I rolled up to get gas (and made Tom pump it hahaha) I thought, “Man this is nice! I can’t believe I used to have to get my butt out of the car and do this myself.”

I’m such a dork.

    They do the whole full-service gas stations thing in Jersey, too. It freaked me out the first time I was there visiting my in-laws.
