This morning the attendant at Exxon in Montclair, NJ cleaned the front and rear windows without any prompting. It was the first time in a while that happened.

Was it a Hess station? In the old days it was required of Hess stations to do windshields. Of course on rainy days we did not but would you believe some people insisted we do their windshields in the rain? They felt they were paying for it and wanted it. I think they died a slow painful death when they got older.

Today nearly all gas stations in NJ are owned by non Americans who speak no English so of course dont know how to say thank you when you fork over your hard earned money. Not to mention thank you to this govt for giving them free money to open that business while denying born and bread Americans of any grants or loans to start a business.

It was Exxon, not Hess.
The attendant this morning looked Phillipino. I dont know his citizenship status, but he did seem to take pride in his work. Thats something you dont see so much any more.
