Two New Mexico State Police officers try and figure out how to use a gas pump.  They apparently were absent when “Gas Pump 101” was covered at the police academy.

Being fair to the officers… the problem was the pump would not accept their state police debit card.   They had to take care of it inside.  But it did make an interesting photo.

  1. the expression on that one fellow’s face is priceless 🙂


    • They were a couple of very nice gentlemen… simply facing a frustration we all have experienced with “technology”. But it sure was funny to watch them! (They thought I was just photographing their police car…)


  2. I thought, maybe they can’t read? no pictures to follow?
