Never pumped gas before?

I was behind a woman at the Costco station whom I watched with bemusement. She kept inserting card after card, and the pump apparently didn't take it. There was no attendant around to instruct her. I wondered if she ever put in her Costco card. Finally, she hit on a combination that worked, about a dozen cards later. I pulled around her to the foreward pump, when that car pulled out. As I was starting to pump my gas, I also realized something odd. Her engine was running! Hokay... It takes all kinds to make up a world. But why do they always show up when there is no attendant?

Oh yes, she was also still pumping gas (apparently on the s-l-o-w setting) when I left.
