People in Oregon are going to start pumping their own gas and their response is outrageous

If you don't make many trips down to Oregon, you might not know that when you pull up to the gas pump, an attendant comes out to greet you and fills the car up for you. You don't have to get out to type on the little keypad that always has a delay and you have no idea if your numbers are registering. You don't have to pump your own gas. It's the way it is. It's the way it always has been.

In some rural areas, that's about to change and people are pissed.

While most of the comments on the post from local Oregon news station KTVL, which has been shared over 50,000 times, are people making fun of Oregonians for not pumping their own gas like the rest of us hard-working, self-sufficient Americans (not you, New Jersey), there are still a bunch of Oregonians who think that despite everything in 2017, 2018 is now the worst year EVER.

They are worried about the kids.

They are worried about jobs.

Tina - "Not a good idea, there are lots of reason to have an attendant helping, one is they need a job too. Many people are not capable of knowing how to pump gas and the hazards of not doing it correctly. Besides I don't want to go to work smelling of gas when I get it on my hands or clothes. I agree Very bad idea.​"

They are worried about smelling like gas.

They have had scarring experiences.

Still, the sarcastic responses are the best.

Like, actually the best.

Go read the rest for yourself. I pulled into an Oregon gas station once and got out (like an idiot) because I forgot someone does it for you. You would have thought I had just flown in on a spaceship by the confused look I got from the attendant. It's like they saw the Zoolander gas fight scene and thought that's how we did it in the other 48.

Then again, we know what happens when you leave people in charge of things in Oregon.
