In case you didn't know, there are some states in America that don't allow you to pump your own gas. Like, you literally have to have an attendant come out and do it for you. Back in college, I had a roommate from New Jersey (one of those weird states) who had never pumped her own gas. The first time she ever did it herself was a hot mess.
It pretty much looked like this:
Now, it looks like the hot mess express is about to hit Oregon. It was recently announced that the residents of rural counties would have to start doing one of the most basic things ever all by themselves. You literally just put the hose thingy in the car...that's literally it. But apparently that's just TOO much for some people in Oregon. A local news station posted about the new policy and the comments were so dramatic!
Let's have a look at some of our favorites, shall we?

As if those comments weren't funny enough, Twitter caught wind of it and made things even better by trolling the people of Oregon.

But here's my question...did you have to tip the attendant every time you got gas?
