Hey Buddy, Where the Hell Are You Going?

So yesterday at work, of course some old guy didn't see the 'Please Pay First' sign and tried pumping gas. I saw him standing out there waiting for the pump to be turned on, so I figured that since I could see his license plate clearly I would turn the pump on for him.

Once he finishes pumping, the bell inside rang to let me know and I looked up to keep an eye on him, to make sure he was going to pay.

I watch as he gets into his car and starts his truck up. That's when I run outside.

I yell for him to stop, as he's turning the corner towards me. He stops and looks at me. I tell him that he still needs to pay and that we turned the pump on for him as a courtesy.

He looks at me and says 'I know. I was just pulling up to the parking spot here.'

So me, out of breath, gets this disgusted look on my face as I walk back inside.

Why?

BECAUSE I HATE WHEN PEOPLE FINISH PUMPING THEIR GAS, GET IN THEIR CAR, AND DRIVE 4 FEET TO PARK IN ONE OF THE PARKING SPOTS AT THE FRONT OF THE STORE.

I don't get why people do this. Why not just walk your ass through the SMALL parking lot instead of starting up your car and driving a couple of inches to the next spot.

So the douchebag comes in behind me, and starts laughing to the other cashier about how I thought he was going to drive off.

Of course I thought you were going to drive-off, you fuckface. You got in your car and started driving away.

A word of advice: If the cashier is nice enough to turn your pump on for you before you pay, don't get in your freaking car when you're done and drive up closer. We're going to think you're driving off without paying and you will give us a mini-heart attack.

Again, I hate when people do this. That shithead ruined my whole day, mainly because he laughed at me for getting worried he was going to drive off. I hope he finds a severed finger in his Wendy's chili.

  1. omg, what an absolute dickhead. I would have totally reamed him in front of the other cashier for laughing at me. f-er. (ok, calming down)

    I'll be hoping for the karma fairy to do something to his sorry ass.

  4. Oh no now I feel guilty. My husband will pump the gas and while he goes in and pays he has me drive up to the front of the store. I'll never do it again I promise...lol

  5. There is not a gas station around here where people can pump their gas without paying first! I don't even bother to try and haven't for years. That man is a fool!

  9. Maybe he was just wanting to move his car out of the way so others could use the pump.

  10. Just found your blog and I love it-that said, where I live, there are signs TELLING you to please move your car after pumping before going inside to pay or get something else.

  11. moving your car is pretty common actually. Its common courtesy when the pumps are crowded.

  12. Most of would move are cars so the next car can pump. Not all of us drive away with out paying. Must of us in fact are courtesy minded.It sounds to me you are the one who should find another job.

  13. This chick is real stupid for the comments she has made. I would be ticked if the man didn't move his car.

  14. HI Cashier!

    I remember when my sister was working as a gas station attendant, but she never had stories quite as interesting as yours!

    I always remember her worrying about people she would turn the pump on for and if they drove off, SHE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING IT!!! So I completely understand your frustration with this guy! Who the hell can afford to pay for someone else's gas??

    Maybe it's just in my state, but there are usually lines at the pumps because no one pulls forward after pumping. In fact, pulling forward seems ridiculous to me, because I never remember what pump I'm even on, so I could possibly tell the cashier the wrong pump, end up paying for a different person's gas, drive away, and end up with the cops chasing me because they think I drove off! All pumps should be pay first...regular customer, or not :)

    That's enough of my rant for now! Love this blog...keep up the good work as usual!

  15. Haha, you sound so bitter. I love it!
    I'd get pissed too.

  16. Sometimes I move my car just so that I'm not blocking a pump for others. It's not out of laziness, it's courtesy.

  17. I would have "accidentally" tripped his old ass and prayed for a broken hip on impact. HAHA, funny now, motherfucker?? LMAO I'm in the same boat as Jeanette....haven't been to a gas station that will turn on the pump before you pay in YEARS, and wouldn't even bother to try! What a needledick that guy is. Let him stand out there next time until the cows come home, or he pays first for his gas...whichever comes last! xD

    PS -- The cowardly shit-for-brains posting anonymously (The Stormy One excluded...) should grow a freaking pair and just put their name out there. Don't be a chickenshit -- you clearly don't have a problem running off with your moron mouth. Pussy.
