dude idk, its generally good practice to not be in your car when it's being pumped

in turkey you have attendants because unemployment through the roof but even there i step out and wait until it's ready to go
You've got me curious as to why it's "good practice" to not be in your car when filling up.

I can't think of a single reason myself, and I've never seen any nj news stories where there was a problem with a person inside their car (with bmws, if you lock from the inside, the fuel filler door stays unlocked ) while getting gas.

I'd much rather have my daughter sitting locked in her car getting gas from an attendant than to be on display out of her car pumping her own.

Do you NJ folks tip the attendant or no?

Any time I'm driving through on my way to AC, it feels like a tip is pretty much expected (maybe cuz MD plates though..??)

I never tip, but I go to Wawa in NJ to get gas and most of the people there are rude. Plus, these days I never have cash on me which is good an bad, since I use to tip people cash all the time who do a good job verse putting on the check and then having to pay taxes on it.

No but I pretty much always go to the same 2 gas stations all the time and always give out gifts Christmas time to my regular guys.

But never feel obligated to tip them for doing their job.

Personally, I feel no sympathy towards young adults/elders that jaywalk and get killed. They should have the most common sense out of everyone.
I'm a mother and a walking enthusiast and I agree with this poster.

All kids here are equipped with those shiny bits in their clothes thanks to eu regulations. All kids here walk alone to school from 7 years and up. All adults who get to drive are taught how hard it is to see a person that is not wearing a reflector in the dark before they are given a driving licence.

Now you know how hard it is to see a person without one, but you think you're so fucking special you glow from within?
