Log in to Reply Still can. It all depends on how bad a neighborhood your gas station is in. Log in to Reply I remember full service gas stations. A guy, often in a uniform, pumped your gas, washed your windshield and checked your oil. I remember because I was that guy in high school. Saw some things through that windshield…lol. Log in to Reply Yeah a lot of people stole gas then lol Log in to Reply It’s still a common thing in Canada Log in to Reply Yes. My mom used to send me inside the store to get $5 on the pump. Log in to Reply I though we still can? Log in to Reply You still can in northern Michigan Log in to Reply Umm….you still can Log in to Reply My walmart still lets me do it, surprisingly. Log in to Reply Absolutely. Log in to Reply Where is this? It’s still like that in Canada. Log in to Reply The fucking globalists ruined it. Log in to Reply You still can in some places. I actually prefer not to. If I pay with card I don’t have to interact with people. Log in to Reply Yes and the good old days when they weren’t watching your every move so you could sample the fruit at the grocery store or take a swig of petrol without anyone getting all you in your grill for stealing. Log in to Reply Yup, I remember when gas got above $.70 and my mother complaining about it. Log in to Reply Yes and that’s exactly how i thought the system still was when I pumped gas for the first car I drove. Nothing came out so I figured the one I was at was broken. It was rush hour and the other pumps were taken. I ended up going home. Then when I complained about the gas station always having a broken pump, that’s when I found out you had to pay first lolol Log in to Reply I remember before self service. But a place in this area had roving attendants that watched people and the pumps and collected money. They got pay at the pump eventually. Log in to Reply If you remember that, you probably have bad ideas Log in to Reply Yes, and I also remember the analog numbers on them with the notes of this dial is for this pump and the arrows, I remember when cigarettes were on the gas station counter (and not behind it) and you picked what you wanted, and, while I was a little kid I do remember when (as an American) gas price signs only had two slots since it was simply presumed you know it was under $1, they didn’t need that first slot with a decimal to indicate $1.XX, you just knew gas was 79 cents or 89 cents, etc. Log in to Reply We still do that where I live?? Log in to Reply They still exist. Most stations here do it that way. This is a remote rural area though Log in to Reply I can remember when they not only pumped it for you, but cleaned your windshield and checked your oil while they were at it. And call you (my Dad, actually), “Sir”. And all this from my Dad rolling down his window and saying, “Gimme a buck’s worth”. Log in to Reply About half our petrol stations you can pump befor you pay and most of the ones your ment to pay first still open the pump if you ask them Log in to Reply That’s all you can do here in Australia. Can’t pay at the pump either. Log in to Reply I’m in Australia and this is still a thing absolutely anywhere. Log in to Reply 9/10? Log in to Reply I did this within the last 10 years! I lived in a small town and there was a gas station right outside my little neighborhood of houses. The owner was also my mechanic and let me fill up before paying! And usually rounded down to the nearest dollar. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
