It’s no wonder Americans are tired.
Not only do we work longer hours and get less vacation time than our foreign counterparts, now we can’t even be left alone while we’re pumping gas.
Never mind that “back in the day” getting gas only involved driving in to the station, stopping at the pump, telling the attendant how much gas we wanted and then relaxing while it was pumped and our windshield was washed and maybe even our oil and water checked. All without exiting our vehicles. Ahh, those were the days.
