In the quest for finding something to do with their time, people are known to collect things and end up being completely misunderstood in their hobbies.

Those service stations reveal a time when people pulled along side a gas pump and waited in their car while a service attendant checked the oil, aired up the tires and filled the gas tank. Such things should be remembered.
