Comment Of The Day: School's In Session Edition

It might not seem like a big deal to you, but waking up one morning and going from having your gas pumped by an attendant your whole life to suddenly having to pump it yourself can be mildly terrifying! My heart goes out to those poor Oregonians who are freaking out over this.


I’m only teasing a little bit. As a driver who came of driving age in New Jersey, I remember the first time I stopped in Pennsylvania for gas and then realized, humiliatingly, that I didn’t actually know how to pump my own gas. The only difference here being that I was 17 at the time and these people are... older than that. I think.


Anyway, as I’ve always said, where there is hardship for some, there’s a business opportunity for others. Eagle-eyed Urambo Tauro, spotting a money maker in the works, gets it, too.

Luck is when opportunity meets preparation, kids.

Congratulations, Mr. Urambo Tauro, on COTD! I would like to gift you with an IDK car which this lovely lady will deliver when she finishes pumping gas.
