Most of the jobs you mention are actually pretty boring and tedious. Pumping gas? Ringing in groceries? Checking out library books? Manning the steel mills? All of those jobs suck.
Thankfully, through the magic of the 21st century, we've created robots that can do those crappy jobs for us. The problem now is we need to find a way to reorganize society so that the people who would have been doing those crappy jobs in the past can do other things rather than be unemployed.
We can't look back nostalgically to the days when everyone had a really crappy job to look forward to going to everyday. Instead we need to think about new ways to evolve our entire social structure. We need a system which incorporates technological advances that eliminate the need for tedious work, and one in which everyone benefits from those advances rather than just an elite few.
