I thought this was kinda interesting….. in order that during those 3 minutes it takes someone else to pump your gas they want to make sure you don’t get bored…….
Sitting in line at the gas station, there was a dang monster-big TV screen in the storefront across the way. They are showing advertising, maps of the route ahead (since you can only go one way, no left turns here, remember??), new products, things to entice children, stuff like that. A great marketing idea, because what *else* do you have to do while you’re waiting for someone else to pump your gas??
