I stopped at a gas station near Tysons Corner to fuel up before work this morning.
It’s not a station I frequent, nor does anyone else judging by a sign that’s been posted to advise patrons of a change to the hours of operation.
The plight of this little gas station is as unfortunate as it is common. The lackluster economy of the past several years has forced many a once-thriving business to reduce personnel, services, or both.
But it looks to me like the gas station might have laid off its marketing department a little too soon. With a few swift strokes of a Sharpie, it went from being a business that used to serve you better on the weekends to one that just serves you right.
