Thread: Pumping gas... Why?

  1. #11
    Here in Minnesota we just need to honk and they will send someone out. You can also ask any person going in to the station to let them known you are in a wheelchair and will send someone out. Stores all offer carry out services also.

    I found a local gas station that repairs cars in addition to selling gas. I try and go there for my car maintenance and gas (most of the time), they get to know me, and if I pull up to the pump in front, they send someone out. I have seen them do this for little old ladies also. You need to find a station that is more 'family owned' vs one that is turning over clerks all the time.

    I just feel at this day in age, everything is becoming automated. We shohld be able to pull in and have it just hook up to our cars. For me, the hard part is getting my chair between my van and the pump. Theres also the issue if the ramp

    Why do you care that they stare? I am AB and female, and when I ride with a friend shotgun, I often pump gas for them, male or female. Screw them.

    Do people wonder why you wash dishes for your wife? This is 2017! Women can pump gas just like any man can wash dishes. Time to move on beyond stereotypes.
