Mensagem:  > Back in the days of gasoline stations with attendants you > could just drive up and say "Fill it up please" [. . .] In some of the old American-made movies I have watched motorists drive up and say, "Fill 'er up, Joe!" with a hearty good smile. I, for once, had given wondering whether they would call every gas attendant "Joe" some thought, but gave up altogether as my English and my perception of the world outside improved. Or helped me improve.
