I never thought I would write a blog post about a gas station, but at the “10” station there is more than meets the eye.
First of all, the 10 station is conveniently located near our favorite fruit market, plus it has attendants that pump your gas for your, and, to top it off, they wash your windows too! The attendants are nice and polite, and wear snappy bright blue “10” uniforms. Full service gas in 2010!
Even more incredible, we recently learned from one of the “10” attendants (our neighbors son-in-law) that the IDF pays 9000 NIS (approx $2400) to exiting members of the military to work for 150 days in a factory or a gas station. This allow Israel to be more self-sufficient, and reduces the need to import foreign workers.
