Someone tried to save my soul in a gas station. Orlando Bloom
Whether I’m at the gas station or I be at the store, I be there by myself. I be regular. Lil Baby
My wife always complains that I dont take her anywhere expensive… so I took her to the Gas Station. Unknown
I go to church every Sunday, which is like going to the gas station once a week and really, really filling up. Anne Lamott
Gas stations are considering hiring security guards. Why are they getting security guards? We’re the ones getting robbed.
If I rob a gas station, I’m going to get 15 years. If I steal $400 million on Wall Street, I start plea-bargaining.
Every new discovery in science brings with it a host of new problems, just as the invention of the automobile brought with it gas stations, roads, garages, mechanics, and a thousand other subsidiary details.
I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road. Being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich – and then you get back on the highway. I don’t want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station.
I started out printing silk screen t-shirts. I sold ink pens. I worked construction. I worked at a gas station. I pumped gas. I was a mechanic for a little bit. I went into sewers, down into sewer lines. I had a lot of somewhat unpleasant gigs for a time there.
I lived for two years in an abandoned gas station with no running water and no electricity after my parents got divorced and my stepdad couldn’t get a job. So I think a lot about families like mine who were middle class and struggled. So that experience really drives my philosophy.
I loved growing up in a little town. I loved knowing people. I loved going to the store and running into people. I loved going into the store and having forgotten my bag, saying, ‘Charge it, put it on my bill.’ I loved going to the gas station and saying, ‘Pete, fill it up.’ I loved that continuity of life.
The only other thing I can really remember wanting to do besides acting was a gas station attendant. At the time, that seemed like a great job – wash the windows, pump the gas – it looks so cool coming home with black hands. There’s a natural transition, from wanting to be a gas station attendant to being an actor, right?
My friends seem to think that an hour and a half effort a day is all they need to bring to the altar to make things work for them. I couldn’t do that. I thought that if you didn’t work at least as hard as the guy who runs a gas station, then you had no right to hope for achievement. You certainly had to work all day, every day. Thomas McGuane
