collectible of the day: MINI gas pump signs

We previously featured the WORD OF THE DAY gas pump signs.  Today we have another set.  These philosophical MINI gas pump signs are 19.75″ wide by 11.75″ high and are dated 11/15/05.  Shown are just a few of the variations.

Above left is version #1:

HAS “PAY AT THE PUMP” MADE US LONELIER PEOPLE?
Every once in a while, go inside and pay. Talk to the cashier. Ask him about the craziest thing he has seen at the station. You’re bound to hear a great story. But if he just smiles and says, “Here’s your change,” that’s okay too. It’s just nice to talk to people.

Above right is version #2:

MAKE TODAY CO-PILOT APPRECIATION DAY. Every so often, do something nice for your navigator. Like buy them a salty snack or some fake designer sunglasses. But remember, if you get them a cassette of the best bluegrass hits from the 80’s, don’t come crying to us if they actually play it.

Below is version #5:

WHY DON’T WE TALK TO EACH OTHER AT GAS STATIONS?
Why can’t this be another opportunity to meet people? You never hear stories like, “Yeah, we met at the gas station. We’re both premium octane, no receipt people.” After all, destiny can strike anywhere. Including the filling station.

Back in 2005, MINI USA came up with the WORD OF THE DAY campaign.  Each day on the MINI USA website there was a new WORD OF THE DAY for a total of 31 words.  MINI USA also created an application that could be downloaded to display the WORD OF THE DAY on your computer.

The WORD OF THE DAY campaign extended to gas pump signs of which we have four variations shown here.  The double-sided laminated signs were of varying sizes depending on which gas station they were created for.
