To all our gas station workers...I saw one.

My truck of the day was begging for fuel, just whining for it and me being a good little truck handler decided that the truck should have its fuel. Stopped by one gas station and there were signs everywhere saying Premium Only. Now our trucks don't do well on that high grade stuff and with almost a empty tank I wasn't going to risk it. So I headed down to choice B.

And there she was ladies and gents. Coming up just behind me. Now I saw the yellow bag on the handle I KNOW what that means so instead of going through the whole line I stopped at the first pump. Lady starts bitching at me about proper gas station etiquette.

Bunny: So you want me to go to the closed pump?
Lady: the pump is wide open, your supposed to pull through.
Bunny: But it's closed.
Lady: It is not, where do you see that?
Bunny: The cone and Out of Order bag help.
Lady: Those don't mean anything I'm going to complain to you to your boss!

So she whips around me, kills the poor cone, and then pull the bag off the handle. She then starts yelling at the poor clerk who came out to toss trash that the machine isn't reading her card.

I'm sorry I had to get back to the route and don't know how it finished. But I gave it a bit of effort to make one of them see the bag and cone.

Another wonderful case of "Reality revolves around me!"

I'm sorry Aethian, but perhaps you should've put the out of order bag on her head instead.... ;) :P

Yeah, I meant the SC's reality. That's the only one that matters, right? :D

You and me both. You'd think I'd know better by now.

Karma would have been the "out of order" pump having its hose missing completely - and it being a pump island with both kinds of fuel. Bitch would have grabbed the only available nozzle, complained about it not fitting the filler neck properly, and put diesel in her car.:devil:

:rolleyes:We had a big snow storm last week, which put all of our deliveries behind. One store completely ran out of gas. This just so happened to be the store I was working that day. Every pump had a bag on it. People just could not grasp the concept that the bags were to alert people that they COULD NOT PUMP GAS.

My favorite station here has been out of gas for a couple weeks now. Been wondering why.

I just saw an article in the Bergen Record that their owners are now under indictment for bouncing $5.7 million in bad checks on their supplier, who now can't afford to pay the refinery and may be out of business.

No wonder they were the cheapest gas in town.

There you go, using the T word again. You know very well that SCs don't think...! :p

Makes you want to get on the loudspeakers and say, "Are you people seriously that stupid?! The "out of order" bags mean that the pumps are OUT OF ORDER, just like the bags say! They don't work! CapicÚ?!" Or maybe rig a few dozen clue-by-fours to swing down from the overhang and beat some sense into the idiots. :rolleyes:

No, no, the pumps work fine. The bags are just there so that there will always be a space available for the speshul snowflake customers like her that every business wants to have so badly!

...Erm, excuse me...back in a bit. I rolled my eyes a bit too hard and one of them wound up under the couch x.x

Is it wrong to hope that one of these people gets gasoline/petrol sprayed in their own face?
