I'm not that old and I can remember when self service gas was a new thing. How 'bout the rest of you?

You could buy a pack of your favorite cigs for a quarter. Penny candy was really only a penny. A Big Hunk was only a nickel. A McGagger's burger was 15 cents. I don't even think Taco Hell was around way back then. 50 cents to go see a movie. Shall I continue?
Those were the days, eh Quasi?smileys

When I was 4-5 years old, my dad would give me a gas can and a quarter every Saturday, and I would walk to the gas station up the alley and get gas for the lawn mower. Can you imagine a 4-year-old buying gasoline in today's America? You'd probably get charged with child endangerment.

My boss, who is about a dozen years older than me, was mostly raised by his grandparents. He's told me of Saturday evenings when his grandmother would send him down to the store with his little wagon to fill it up with ice and beer in preparation for watching wrestling ov TV.

Even when I was a kid I knew what was up. When Self Serve Gas came out, I knew that it wasn't convenience, it was just the companies taking away for more profit, just like they continue today..... put a nice big IMPROVED! on the front, decrease the size, water down the actual product and fuck the world to make a buck.... with a smile!
