    I might be convinced to do that.

    I'd heard that Oregon had changed its full service laws, leaving NJ the only state with full service only... But I could be mistaken.

    Just want to say.. I went "down the shore" today & negotiated a circle. hehe

    now that i think about it...i think oregon did have a change in laws, but they still do it all anyway because people like the service so much.

    my dad worked in oregon for a bit and we'd go visit him on the weekends (aka...mom would do his laundry and grocery shopping for him) and i remember thinking what an easy job it would be to pump gas. i told my dad that it looked like a fun job and he said he hoped i had higher ambitions than that...silly dad :p

    Ummm... so you have to learn how to pump gas? I thought it was something that came naturally like walking and speech. Pay, put pump in, pump gas, put pump back, angrily press the "No receipt" button because it is stuck, and leave.

    Then again I've met people who didn't understand Tic-Tac-Toe. That's weird.

    Hottie farm boys always have bad teeth. Plus hottie city guys have even tans too.

    Um... that I've been told. I don't spend my time chasing hottie farm boys or city ones. Not my style.

    Ummm... Justice?? A little too much information. :rolleyes:


    And I've never learned to pump gas as it's actually against the law to pump your own gas in NJ. I suppose if it were illegal to play tic-tac-toe, then I wouldn't know how to do that either.

    Wow....I never knew people don't know how to pump your own gas? I mean, even if it's against the law to DO it, don't you ever watch the guy? That way you'd know if you- God forbid- ever left new jersey? ;)

    Here in southern california, we pump our own gas- always have, always will. :D (although there are some stations that offer it at extra charge in certain cities like Malibu, Beverley Hills, Palos Verdes, etc.)

    Why would I ever leave NJ? We've got rude drivers, oil refineries, sanitary landfills, strip malls as far as the eye can see... Everything a person could want. :rolleyes:

    YAY!! Another survivor of life in New Jersey.

    I've lived in the state all my life, and it hasn't affected me at all. :duh: No, really......

    Hmm. I can't say for sure, but I'm thinking that if the state legislature is distrustful enough of their constituents to make it illegal for them to even attempt to pump their own gas, it probably says something unflattering about said constituents. Maybe I'm wrong though, and they just had some other strange reason for making that law. :p I think they have the same law in Oregon too.
