Every now and then you come across a gas station that stands apart from the rest - a special place where you can refill your car, your stomach, and your heart. The QT (short for QuickTrip) gas station chain is such a place. Rochelle and I stopped at one of these on our way through Atlanta, en route to Birmingham. I loved it so much that I insisted that we stop there on our way home as well, and I took these pictures to document the experience. I got a few odd looks for taking pictures in a gas station, but it was well worth it. I didn't take any pictures in the bathroom because I thought that might be against the law/creepy for people in the bathroom. So, without any further delay, I present to you my new photo-essay,QT: Gas Station of Dreams.
Rochelle standing in front of the coffee machines - and I wasn't even able to get the whole row in the frame!
Slushies, Slurpees, and other frozen delights.
22 varieties of soda plus cherry and vanilla add-ins. Quick quiz: can you name 22 sodas off the top of your head?
The lids. If it has liquid in it, QT has
Me, squatting beside the QT trash-can. It was a very good pit-stop.
Questions for Discussion:
- Have you ever seen a better gas station? (This is rhetorical because no one has actually seen a better gas station than this.)
- Can you name 22 sodas without the aid of a Google-search?
- Which of the three flavors of Corn-Nuts would you have gotten: Original, Ranch, or Barbecue? Which do you think I got?
