FUN FACT! Getting gas at one of those pumps with a goddamn TV in it? On almost all of these pumps, the circled button mutes the sound. At least you don’t have to listen to that crap.
@cyberpunklibrarian I applaud the oil companies in trying to encourage people to drive less or sell their cars. ^_^
@cyberpunklibrarian THANK YOU
@platypus You're welcome! I'm sure there are some different machines out there that use a different button, but every time I try pushing that button, it works!
@cyberpunklibrarian Luckily Sheetz does not do this but I will try it on my next road trip. ... in... 202X?
@platypus Push ALL the buttons! You don't owe them your attention! You're already paying for the gas!
@cyberpunklibrarian you da real mvp.
@thegibson It could be a different button on other pumps, but that's the one that always seems to work. I've noticed I've had to push it twice on a couple of occasions, but I attribute that to hardware problems more than anything else.
@cyberpunklibrarian wait there are mandatory ads on gas pumps now
@cyberpunklibrarian they took those out of Toronto gas stations after about six months. Everyone hates them.
@cyberpunklibrarian I haven't put any gas in my plug-in hybrid since I started working from home in March, but I will remember it when this is all over.
