So I had some time to think while I was pumping gas yesterday. A couple of revelations came to me.
First of all, what is the correlation between gas stations and friend chicken outposts? What about filling your tank/buying a candy bar makes one predisposed to buy chicken wings?
While I was reading all the random stickers/warnings on the pump, I was especially moved by the one that informs patrons that it is dangerous to siphon gas by mouth.Who the hell needs to be told that? What genius is standing there thinking, okay, I have to get gas from this nozzle to this container, what can I use? Oooh, I know! I’ll use my mouth!
What are the odds of that paste eater actually reading that warning and seeing the error of his ways? I’m thinking not so good. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that’s not the first obvious safety hazard he’s failed to recognize.
