20080604 - Go-Juice

Had to call this one go-juice 'cos in all the excitement of getting him to agree, I forgot to ask his name - D'oh!
And it's go-juice because he runs the petrol station where I filled up this morning. Petrol's not cheap, but this garage is always as-cheap or cheaper than the immediate competition and they do the 'attendant' bit, so you get to say "fill 'er up"! That's got to be worth a couple of pence per litre at least :)

Really like this one. We're used to queues of 'Northerners' coming here to fill up
on 'cheap petrol' this side of the Border.

It's been a while since I've seen a petrol pimp attendant. Sorry I meant to type pump.
