Picture the scene. Woman comes up to my till. She says her car is parked on pump 2. I tell her the total; it comes to about 60. She says "Yeah, thanks" and pays. Woman then goes to car parked at PUMP 12, and drives off. WTF? I check pump 12. The petrol on there comes to 20. Is this woman on drugs, ffs?! She just forked out an extra 40 for her petrol, and DIDN'T BLOODY WELL NOTICE!!! I am still in shock. :eek:

:jawdrop: That is just... well. I have no words. Reminds me of that scene from the original Blues Brothers film with Twiggy. How bad is this woman's money sense?

So how happy was the person who WAS on pump 2 when they walked in expecting to pay 60 and only had to pay 20? I know I'd be ecstatic!

He was too. Well, once he'd picked his jaw up off the floor. XD

Perhaps she has oodles of money and wanted to do a good deed for the day.

She probably just thought, "Flippin' petrol keeps going up. It only cost me 20 last time." :D

And she hasn't been back. O.o

So you made the guy only pay 20?
What if she comes back, does she get her 40 back?

In my experience, if/when this happens, we charge the second customer the right amount that they pumped, print reciepts for both transactions, and leave a note for the manager.
