At my petrol station we aren't allowed to accept payments for fuel from anyone who is under 16 and as people frequently send in their under 16's and even under 10's to pay while they fill up it means that we send away a lot of kids. We did have a sign stating this on all of our pumps but someone had removed them all
Tonight I had to do that again as a kid who wasn't even 10 came up to my till so I had to send him away. His father then came marching up and threw the money at me and started walking out the door, but then he turned back to me...
asshat - 3 year old in a 30+ year olds body
me - your humble petrol station worker
asshat: why do you have to be over 16 to pay for fuel?
me: it's our policy...
a: no it isn't! tell me where your signs are!
m: there were signs on our pumps but...
a: tell me where your signs are!
m: we did have signs...
a: tell me where your signs are! it's not company policy and you don't have any signs. I want your name.
Asshat then storms out and drives off as though he was racing in a grand prix whilst looking at me and I just shrug my shoulders at him. We warned our customer services desk in the main store that he might come and complain but
he never did.
All that just because he had to make the arduous journey across a forecourt and pay for his fuel himself. Good riddance and I hope he never comes back!
