People don't read signs around here much. There's a sign on all of the gas pumps that states not to leave them unattended while pumping gas. Why?
Not only is it dangerous, but because it's your fault if it spills all over the ground.
We had a lady pull up to the pump the other day and start pumping her gas. As it was pumping, she came inside to buy some other stuff, all while talking on her cell phone.
Well while she was gone, her gas pump decided to keep pumping onto the ground once her gas tank was full.
None of us noticed it, because we were too busy dealing with the rush of customers in the store. When the lady went outside and saw this, she stormed back in, coming straight to me, of course.
"Now, I want you to tell me who's going to refund me all the money that just spilled out all over the ground," she said, staring me directly in the eye, while STILL on her cell phone.
"What are you talking about?" I needed to buy more time to access her and the situation.
"I came in here FOR A SECOND and while I was gone, your pump didn't shut off and now gas has spilled all over the ground. I want my credit card refunded."
"I'm sorry, but you aren't supposed to walk away from the pump while getting gas, and that's the reason why."
"Well it's YOUR pump that isn't working right. That's not my fault. I want a refund."
"You can't get a refund. Like I said, you left the pump and came in here. We have signs out there for a reason. You're even on your cell phone and not paying attention to anything but that. If you want a refund, you'll have to call the main office number, but I doubt anyone will give you one."
"I ONLY WANTED $15 IN GAS AND NOW IT CHARGED MY CREDIT CARD $40! Give me my money back!" she screamed. By then other customers were looking at her shaking their heads.
"I'm not giving you anything. If you'd like, I can call the police and they can sort it out."
At the mention of the police, she got even angrier and turned around and left. She yelled a few choice words at me as she left, just like they always do when they're walking away. Just once I'd like to magically teleport myself outside so as their cussing me out to my back, they can then walk right into me and crap their pants, wondering how I got outside so fast.
