Hose Job

Some of you may be familiar with the full service station on Turin Road. It turns out the new owners have decided to change things around. Besides the mini mart about 50 feet from two stores, half of the pumps are now self serve. The other pumps are full serve... at a price. For an extra 10 cents a gallon you can have the delightful attendants pump your gas and, well, that's it. No more wiping off your rear windshield or any other service.

I rarely went to that station myself. It's too far away and on the wrong side of the road. I won't be going to it at all now. The prices were already high at the regular rate. This new, unposted attendant tax is just stupid. See you in the forclosure section of the Sentinel.

    Funny, even though the signs USED to say "Full Service", the only service I got was a "Fill 'er up, mister?" No checking of fluids, no cleaning the windshield or anything else...

    What does Full Service mean any more? "I want my tank FULL"??? :)

    While I'm thinking about gasoline... the Stewart's across from Stokes Elementary is generally the cheapest gas in town. I've decided not to drive all the way to Oneida for it. Especially since the 'rez' fuel is paying the Nation's legal bills (I'm sure!).
