OK I've got to say I am slightly shocked by the pumped your own gas one. Unless my husband is in the car with me I have been pumping my own gas since I was 18. And the amish person one that suprises me too but, as I only know Ohio I guess I am a bit sheltered.

Crazy, I know, about the gas pumping thing. It's still weird to me! Oregon is one of the last full-service states, I think. And whenever we traveled to Washington or California (both with self-serve gas stations) it just didn't come up (probably because I wasn't driving).
