Random PoP Observation

As much as I wish I rode a bicycle or walked everywhere I actually drive places from time to time. As such, I have to fill up the car with gas. So, this weekend I fill up the car at one of the "cheap" places down on Sherman Ave and I put 10 bucks in. You know how if you put 10 bucks in the nozzle gets really slow at $9.90? Well, this pump got really slow at $9.00! So for a full dollar at 1 cent increments I had to wait for it to reach 10 bucks. What the hell? Have you noticed this at gas stations around town?

The cheaper the gas, the shittier the pump or so I've found. I haven't been to the stations on Sherman but the two Shell stations on GA (between Shepard and Upshur) both have fully functional pumps that don't slack at the end.

Once on a trip through NC, I stopped to fuel up at one of those giant places just off the interstate. I pumped gas for more than five minutes before deciding to give up and drive away with only 3 fresh gallons of gas. Only at a place with ZERO return customers could you get away with such shoddy infrastructure.
