Not So Wordless Wendesday

Every time I stop and fill up my car at the gas station near my house I see this posted on each gas pump:

How do you Prepay for something before you pay for it??  This is not a Mom and Pop little gas is a national or international (not quite up on my fuel company knowledge!!) chain.  If you look closely you can see someone else got as annoyed as I did and tried to scratch out "in Advance."

I want to know what you think...Is this correct grammar? 

I am off to go hunker down for the huge storm rolling in....another 18 inches of the fluffy white stuff is on the way today!

Have a great Wednesday!


  1. Yes, I agree it seems the correct way would be " PAY BEFORE YOU PUMP " !

  2. You are correct. Stay warm!

    When you get a chance, I would love for you to stop and follow me back!


  4. LOL! I haven't seen that one. I usually see "Pay before you pump". I don't think it's correct grammar. It's like saying "New arrivals have arrived". When you get chance, follow me back!
