But for the non-natives that may not be familiar with this Jersey status quo - they could be in for a bit of a rude awakening when they unwittingly attempt to pump their own gas in New Jersey.

You would think that being told not to worry about pumping your own gas would be a pleasant exchange, right? So why is it not?!

As a born and bred Jersey girl, not only do I prefer to have my gas pumped for me, but even I wanted to pump it myself, I'm afraid to do it! Why? Because in some cases, New Jersey gas station attendants will scold you for even trying.

If you even try to touch the gas pump, the interaction with the attendant will most likely go something like this TikTok by @chayyy_luppp. It's hilarious, but true!
