6.16-17: Steve Byrne
“If I go to a gas station, I swipe my credit card at the pump and it says, ‘Please come inside and see attendant,’ I’d rather die than go inside and see that attendant. I’d rather get in my car and drive three miles to another gas station than walk 10 yards into your piece of crap place of business because you can’t fix the pump. I’ll take death. - Steve Byrne on The Late Late Show with James Corden
