Here I am, another day at the register.
Customer: "Excuse me, miss, do you have a tire gauge that I can use?"
Me: "No, sorry, we don't." Is it time to go home yet?
Customer: "How am I supposed to check the air in my tires if you don't have a tire gauge?"
Me (what I want to say): "I don't know, I just work here, asshole. Pull the one out of your ass and use that."
Me (what I really say): "We have them for sale, sir."
Customer: "That's bullshit. I'm not going to pay for one. This is a gas station, you should have them here for us to use."
And so goes my Friday. If this guy wouldn't have been such a shithead, I would have explained to him that we USED to have tire gauges that customers could use, but they end up taking them.
We've probably gone through hundreds of tire gauges over the years because people ask for one and never bring it back in. So what does that mean? We've stopped letting customers use them. And that means that if you want to use a tire gauge, you will have to pay $1.99 and buy one yourself.
Please don't let this be an indication of how my weekend is going to go.
