And here I was, at the petrol station, waiting at the queue to buy some petrol.
When my turn came, the cashier asked, "Which lane?"
Seven, I said. He looked puzzled.
"Have you pumped any gas yet?"
I said no. I am here to pay before I pump.
He politely smiled (since there was a line of people behind me) and told me that I have to pump the gas (petrol) first , and then come in and pay.
The complete opposite from back home.
I wanted to ask him what would happen if I just drove off but the large video camera pointed at the pumps assured me that I won't be a free man for long.
And for the record, Australia pumps RON 91.
