So one thing I had to do today was deliver the oldest daughter and most of her stuff down to Silicon Valley where she is starting a new job. Dad has a truck, so you know who gets the help call.
While getting all the stuff loaded, the daughter tells me that her company offers a service that left me simply astounded.
It's called Booster, and it's a company that will come and fill your car with gas while you are at work, so you don't have to.
You call them up and tell them where your car is on the company's campus, then lock the doors and leave the gas cap open. They do the rest.
They'll pump regular or premium. Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised there are enough McLarens and Ferraris down there to justify carrying premium.
I guess it's an efficiency thing. Work an extra half hour that you'd otherwise spend hunting a station and filling your tank. You still have to pay for the gas, but avoid the hassle, if you consider gassing up a hassle, and your employer gets a little more work out of you.
I can't believe there's actually a company that will do this. They only service San Francisco, Silicon Valley and for some reason, Dallas/Fort Worth, but I might be tempted to try it at least once if they'd set up in Sacramento. I guess my town is too small, conservative and cheap to support this idea.
I encouraged the daughter to see how it worked. I'm super curious to hear.
