Because sometimes you just have to draw the line

There is a Shell gasoline station near my house and I go there when there is a line at the local independent station (which is frequently the case).

I won't be going there any more if I can help it, because they have installed new pumps with video screens in them, and the video screens run continuous ads while you pump your gas.

(Also the new pump kept shutting itself off when I tried to set it to pump automatically, but that wouldn't be a show stopper in itself.)
