Gas Stations

Or: Why I Can’t Take Jeffry Anywhere

So, Oregon has this state law that says we’re not allowed to pump our own gas, because apparently if we do, we will set ourselves on fire.

Today, Jeffry and I went up to Vancouver, WA to visit a friend of the family and some of my relatives that were in the area for a wedding. The gas light came on shortly after we left their house to come back home, so we stopped at a gas station. Two seconds later, he goes ,

“Awwwww crap.”
“What’s wrong dear?”
“It’s self serve!”
“… and?”
“… you seriously don’t know how to pump gas?!”

Ladies and gentlemen, my boyfriend doesn’t know how to pump gas.

So I got out and did it and proceeded to laugh at him for the next hour. Heehee

    it’s a real common thing! it’s amazing when you never have to pump your own gas. lol i remember when i would visit my parents in NJ (when they lived there still) i’d get out of the car out of instinct and the guy would be like “uh excuse me sir…” and i’d be like damn that’s right it’s freaking full serve here lol

    oddly enough only oregon and NJ have full serve. crazy
