I don't know about you, but I hate pumping gas in the winter in Minnesota.

There's nothing I want to do more than play 20 Questions with my gas pump screen when it's -20 degrees out (not).

"Do you have a rewards card? Do you want a car wash? Do you want a receipt? Do you want a donut? Can you answer this trivia question? When's the last time you took a shower? Are you cold yet?" (I may have added some questions there, but you get the point). Turns out, I'm not the only one who feels this way.

A meme shared to the Minnesota thread of reddit by u/MinnesotaTech pokes fun at and basically sums up the gas station experience during a Minnesota winter:

Just gonna squeeze in here with picture... from r/minnesota

Turns out a lot of Minnesotans have feelings about this:

"This drives me insane even in summer. If you ever hear a lady yelling "no I don't want to play 20 questions" at a gas pump, it's probably me."frontier_kittie

"S/O to kwik trip for labeling the mute button. I believe holiday or shell don’t have mute buttons at all."uw-70_uo-21

"Pay Inside or Outside?
Credit or Debit?
Please Insert your card
Remove your card
Please input your PIN
Please input your 5-digit zip code
Do you have Hy-Vee Rewards?
Do you want a car wash?
Do you want a receipt?
Please select your gasoline grade
Waiting for cashier approval...

You may now begin."MinnesotaMiller

"I decide where I get my gas by how few prompts the pump has"TwentyTwoSavage

One reddit user did raise a good question:

"Are there full service stations anywhere in the state during the winter? I would think people would be willing to pay a little more to not have to get out and gas up when it's -0."Ajj360

Do you know of any full service stations in Central Minnesota?
