As around a 5 year old kid, I jumped up and stomped on ketchup packets that were laying in a parking lot once too. My mom, who was holding my hand, did not appreciate being sprayed with ketchup.

While in college, a buddy and I filled a microwave, on a floor we had a rivalry with, with ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise packets and set the dial at the highest power for as many 9s for time a it would take. We expected to make a huge mess for those guys to clean. We were disappointed that the packs just mostly just shriveled up and dried out.

They hate that when you run over those hoses with your carbides in winter.

Not everyone grew up in a 2 parent home and the single parent was always at work.

those hoses were thick. Had to land pretty hard to make the bell ring.

And those stations actually had attendants that came out, pumped your gas, checked your oil and cleaned your windshield. What a concept!

About 1946, Iuka Kansas, "Shorty McDowel" gas station: I remember that my father had to hand pump the amount of gas he wanted to buy into a glass container at the top of the pump. Gas was rationed due to the war. I don' remember him ever running out of ration tickets though. He still trapped during the winter.

I remember when there was talk of self-service gas. Didn't think it would get off the ground. I was still checking oil and washing windows.

I also remember those Coke machines where you could score a bottle of Coke for a dime
In the 70s in the Courthouse basement.
