LA CROSSE, WIS — Area man Alex Johnsrud spent over eight hours at a Kwik Trip gas pump binge watching Gilmore Girls on Monday.
He originally came to the gas station for a quick fill up, carton of eggs, and a jug of milk but ended up spending most of the day watching the ups and downs of inter-generational women on screen.
“I don’t know what happened, I just got hooked and carried away. I’m not exactly mad at myself, either. I’m a Gilmore Guy, what can I say?” Johnsrud said.
Kwik Trip installed small screen television monitors on their gas pumps starting in 2018, treating customers to a more entertaining gas pumping experience.
Johnsrud, who leaned against his car for most of the viewing and wished he brought a chair, loves the amenity.
“The Kwik Trip employees were great about it, too,” Johnsrud added. “They even offered to bring out coffee, doughnuts, and other snacks for sale.”
