This is a very cool story. Can you imagine wanting to make sure you drove by a certain gas station every day? Just to see what the message was on the chalk board? It’s true — a gas station has become quite a landmark in Gauteng, South Africa, with its daily #PetrolPumpWisdom, which are uplifting quotes written on a chalkboard. Some people say they deliberately travel this route just to read the quote which brightens their day.
The lady behind this wonderful initiative at Hutton Hyde Park is Alison Billett. She told SAPeople: “We inherited the board from the previous owner, Dick Hutton, when we bought the filling station from him almost 20 years ago.“We continued the tradition and it has become a landmark – more so now that it’s on social media!
