Yes, I’m from Jersey! The land of full-service pumps. It’s illegal to pump your own gas in Jersey (and Oregon as well), and that’s absolutely OK with me. I don’t like pumping gas. The intricate workings of a gas pump are obviously far too complex for someone of my mental calibur.
What can I say? I’m from Jersey!! I pull up to the pump, roll down the window, and declare: “Fill it up with ‘regular’, please!”
When I lived in Watertown, I used to stop at a full-service Citgo for my gas on the way to work, but when I moved to Newton I couldn’t find a full-service gas station on my way to work.
Yesterday I had to meet Matt in Watertown after work, so I stopped at that full-service Citgo station. Let me tell you, it was great. I got to sit there leisurely as someone else pumped my gas…and it’s a good safety precaution too. Should I happen to faint when I find out it cost over thirty bucks to fill my tank, I’m already sitting down which will decrease my chance of concussion.Filed under Greater Boston (General), New Jersey |
