That was one BIG surprise when I moved to NJ. I hd been pumping my own gas in Michigan since I was able to drive.
True story, first time out here I pulled into a gas station I got out and grabbed the nozzle and was looking for the place to push my credit card in and the guy came RUNNING out asking what I was doing. I said getting my gas. He said no no, we’ll pump it. I said relax, don’t be silly, I got this. No no, STATE LAW, you can’t pump gas.
WTF? How stupid.
