Is it wrong for me to be laughing?
There's this tiny BP gas station on the corner by where I go tanning.
It's owned by a little man. This has nothing to do with the fact that he isn't white or that he's an immigrant. It's the fact that he is an asshole.
He's much like the angry old fart that works at the Holiday gas station in the city I used to live in. He follows customers all over the store and has the predetermined notion that every customer is a shoplifter or scammer. I've been there a handfull of times and seen firsthand how he treats customers.
One day I had to use the ATM. My own fault I forgot to at the other gas station I'd just been at. I only got $20, and I needed change. There's a change machine where I work, but the largest bill it will make change for is a ten. So two tens would have been just fine for me.
I feel bad asking for change, because I remember how customers always asking for change used to piss me off. But these people were always asking me to break 50s and 100s, not 20s. And it was nearly noon. Not at 8 am opening time.
I asked him for change and he shook his head and said "No change, I no give change, you buy something or get out!"
I could have been an SC and gotten a 25 cent pack of gum, but I remember how customers doing that just for change used to piss me off. I'd already gotten cigarettes and milk, and I didn't really NEED anything. But I grabbed a BIC lighter. For a dollar. A dollar.
So it was $1.06.
So I got $18.94 back. The idiot was already losing a ten, a five, and three ones ANYWAY!
What did he expect me to buy and not get change back for??
That happened this last....Wednesday?
I'm sorry this makes me a bad person, but when I drove past the BP this morning on the way to the tanning salon and I saw a FOR SALE sign.....meaning he is going out of business....I had to laugh. I really did. And no, there is no surrounding property that would be for sale. It's kind of a long strip mall of various stores. Only his station is for sale.
Sorry, but it's funny.
