It's learned. The people down south are more of a criminal type. More apt to drive off without paying.

Just be glad you are not in New Jersey or Oregon, those people are apparently too stupid to pump their own gas.

I see both types around here, probably more of the fill up first types, but some of both.

Cuz dem suthin boys be thieven sum serius gas from them gaz statuns. :lol3:

I live in Washington and always chickle when I get gas in Oregon. It is usually a little bit cheaper and they pump it for me. I turn up the radio and enjoy the warmth of my heated seat while some guy making minimum wage is standing in the rain while pumping my gas.

I get a chuckle and a young kid has a job. What is really funny is watching young teenage girls from Oregon standing at the pump in Washington State totally confused with no idea what to do.

I know that pay at the pump is bad for inside business at the convenience store, but it beats the store owner losing money because of gas drive offs.

I'd imagine places like Detroit and Chicago would have the pay at the pump policy too.

i worked at a gas station while i was an undergrad. it was a self serve station and i sat in a little booth all night smoking cigs and taking swigs. funny how many people have no clue how to pump gas. one night working there, in pulls the former longterm mayor of boston and former ambassador to the vatican, mr. ray flynn. he gets out and sortve stares at the pump. puts the nozzle into his tank and sits there for a couple minutes scratching his head. now he is supposed to pay first, but i recognized him and authorized the pump anyway. still, he does not know that he is supposed to squeeze the handle to get the gas pumping. just sitting there for like 2 or 3 minutes watching it and waiting for the gas to magically flow. finally, i left the booth and walked up to him. said hey, youre ray flynn, right? let me give you a hand with that. he said that he had been at the vatican a couple years and hadnt pumped gas in a while. uhuh.

oh yeah, and no tip. ha

My buddies dad owns a gas business. They always filled out of farm tanks. When my buddy turned 16 he had to go to a gas station for the first time because he couldn't make it home. No idea how to work the pump. None at all.

Don't worry, the rich Chicagoans have bought up all the available lake property around here and are heading your way. Their daughters thug boyfriends are tagging along too, so it won't be long, you'll be paying first too. You sanctuary in the mitten is getting farther and farther toward the finger tips. :hi:

Gotta pay to pump first in Pittsburgh. Didn't know it wasn't any different elsewhere. I guess I never have paid attention when away from home.
