Gas-Station Attendants Wear Roller Skates
Attendants wearing roller skates make quick work of filling a motorist’s needs, at an Oklahoma service station. Practiced in performing all their duties on wheels, they fill a customer’s gas tank, check his water and oil, clean his windshield and windows, and send him on his way with a minimum of delay. According to the proprietor who put the idea into use, patrons have expressed their hearty approval of the innovation â€”after getting over their astonishment on seeing the attendants approach their cars in this unusual fashion.
