Herb Finds Full-Service Gas Station

Heading back from Colville, Wash., on yet another trek to discover our family heritage, I stopped for gas in Chewelah. Right smack in the middle of town was a Chevron Station at the traffic light.The only light in town. I pulled up to the pump prepared to get out and gas up the car. But no. This was a full service station. The owner actually pumped my gas and cleaned the windshield. I was stunned at the sight, since the last full service station I have seen was too far back in memory to recall. I asked the proprietor whether he was full service out of choice or was he just too cheap to buy a computerized system? He chuckled and said, "well, kind of both but everyone seems to like it this way so I keep on doing it"/Herb Huseland, Bay Views. More here. (Chevron logo from Wikipedia)

Question: Would you frequent a full-service gas station if there was one in town?
