Maybe this is common knowledge, but this really dumbfounded me. I picked-up a high school friend and his wife who moved to upstate NJ back in 86, at DFW airport earlier today. On the way home, I stopped to fill-up and his wife SHOT out of the backseat exclaiming, "Oh cool, self-serve. I wanna do it!" I looked at her husband puzzled, and he explained that other than a few times on vacation or when she happened to be in NY or PA, she hadn't pumped her own gas since they moved, then explained why. Love the gal to death, but I couldn't resist sliding out of the driver's seat and ambling back to the rear of the truck, pretending to check the "latch security" of the tailgate and whatnot, All the time, giving her the skunk-eye, wondering if the NJ Supreme Court knew something I didn't. Man, talk about a Union strong arm! You're trying to tell me some 16 yr old snot-nose making minimum wage, is going to take more caution sticking a gas nozzle into MY vehicle than I am? Ridiculous!
