    Nope, posted at the pump. Some give the cash discount for a debit card at the pump, others only inside. Cash or debit.

    I always find the "for here or to go" question funny. I can't help it and make a smartass remark....

    You're going to be rich with all those quarters you are saving. Soon you can get a milk crate for your KLR :rofl

    I'll spend the extra quarter to save the time and avoid going in.

    Usual term for letting someone run ahead of you at speed to get the ticket first is a "rabbit."

    Today, I got the "does your husband really let you ride a motorcycle?" one.

    Well, um, I have no idea. I never asked him for permission......

    I've always referred to it as having another vehicle "running interference".

    Today I was approached by an old-timer and his wife who told me all about the good times they had on his 1960 Triumph T120 Bonneville, the "first one in Arkansas", according to him. That wasn't stupid, we had a good conversation and he enjoyed checking out my "new" Bonnie. The stupid remark was earlier in the day, while I was stopped for lunch. A guy who looked like he may have been an actual "biker" drove up, checked out my Triumph, then came in and told me that it had been a while since he'd seen a Norton. "It's a Triumph", said I, understanding his confusion, but then he started to argue. "It says Norton", he countered. I grinned and he went back out to have another look. He came back in, admitted I was right, then without a word proceeded to order his lunch. Ah well.
