Never let your window down when a wild beast approaches.
windows are much stronger when rolled all the way up, the moment they are down the top edge and sometimes the sides are no longer supported and will bend/break much easier.
People are the reason I hate driving.
I had someone wait for my pump once at a 20 pump gas station where almost half of them were unoccupied. I always think people like that are trying to somehow steal my credit card info
I had a dude follow into the gas station while I was waiting in line to buy gas with cash to yell that I was at the pump too long. I took my sweet time after that.
She was probably one of those people driving in circles and keeps pulling up to the pump at the same side. She was super embarassed because shes an idiot and now only goes to one pump to make sure it doesnt happen again since she still doesnt quite get it.
On top of that, she, like most people, isn't comfortable driving that unnecessarily large truck she has for grocery shopping.
She's probably just such a bad driver that taking any other pump is just too much of a chore for her.
A couple of years ago I was about to start pumping gas and this other driver politely asks me if I can use another pump because they're not capable of backing out. I obliged because they were perfectly polite and friendly about it, but God damn....
This is it... you want that particular pump ask for it nicely and maybe explain why lol. 9/10 times people will oblige.
I would have gone full George Costanza.
The jerk store called....
See, I'm petty.
And I got time.
My windows need cleaned.
As do my windshields.
I have trash in my car
I have a phone call to take and don't like talking on the phone while I'm driving.
My car died.
And I'm waiting on a ride.
> I have a phone call to take and don't like talking on the phone while I'm driving.
Using your phone at the gas station? You fool! You've killed us all!
(Seriously, though, I'm well aware that it's basically impossible to start a gas fire with a cell phone. I wonder where that myth started?)
I had someone approach me like this in Vegas a few years ago. Not so aggressive but it was a surprise. I was in a rental had accidentally pulled up with a the filler cap on the wrong side. When she had a go at me I responded reflexively and said "Oi! Fuck off!" She looked a little shocked tbh, and my accent (Australian) may have suggested I wasn't going to play the game.
I throw people off by shouting at them in spanish. I only k ow a few words that translates to absolutely nothing when strung together. But being a bigger mexican makes people think twice for some reason. So that is always my go to solution. It only backfired once when the dude started speaking spanish back, so I threw in some sixth grade German to make it seem like I was just a fucking lunatic.
That’s where her card skimmer was and she still needs to go to other gas stations to collect more. She can’t be waiting all night for you to search for directions for two minutes.
This, Im surprised more comments didnt mention it
I too have an emotional attachment to a specific pump at my local gas station.
Wild, I never realized that was a thing. I honestly couldn't tell you which pumps I've ever used at any gas station, it's so insignificant to me. I also use different stations all the time and have probably barely been to the same one twice since living in this city for about 2.5 years, but I wouldn't recall anyway as it's just an automatic process that I barely register in my memory.
This would be the story of how I spent an entire day sitting at a gas pump
Seriously, you'd have to pay me to leave that pump before she does, and even then it would have to be more than a tank of gas
Looks like time to go in the store and grab a drink and some snacks.
No way I'd leave my car alone with her. Great time to get the squeegee and start washing my windows, though. Maybe collect the trash from my side pockets. Then check my tire pressure and oil levels, and take my sweet time doing it.
Woah, one of the few times I have a relevant story. I'm a mail carrier. One day, I pull into the same gas station I always fill up at, to the same pump I always use. Swipe my card, get a message to see cashier. Weird, I usually don't have any issues, but I mask up, wait in line, tell cashier that my pump said to see her, so here I am. She checks the register, says my cards been closed. Weird, but I'll call the boss. Call the boss, say my cards no Bueno, do you want me to just pay and reimburse me or what? He says we've been having issues with the cards, call the number on the back, they'll authorize it this time and we will get you a new card. Cool, no problem. Call, get authorized, start pumping. I've been there for a few minutes, but this is a station with 18 pumps, and I'm occupying one. There are probably 4 others that are occupied. So while I'm on the phone, getting my card authorized, this guy pulls in behind me. I'm kind of standing off to the side, you know, static electricity and what not, while getting told my cards been authorized for one use. Cool, I hang up and go to pump. Meanwhile, this guy behind me gets out of his truck, proceeds to tell me what a POS I am for blocking off a gas pump, preventing him from operating his VERY profitable business, as I'm a lazy government worker wasting his tax dollars to make phone calls. Some people are unreal.
It's amazing what people think about government work. I respect postal workers. People like that don't have a clue what it takes to be a government employee.
Generally more work than private employement
RULES RULES RULES!! DONT YOU BREAK ANY EITHER!!!
Pay that does not usually equate to the same level of output that is available in the private sector
Not enough coworkers to actually fill all the rolls necessary
RULES MOTHER FUCKER!!!! YOU BETTER FOLLOW EVERY FUCKING ONE BECAUSE ITS A LAW AND NOT ONLY CAN YOU GET FIRED BUT YOU CAN GO TO JAIL IF YOU GOOF UP
but yah... fucking lazy government employees
Grown, yes. Adult, no.
That's not a grown adult. That's an overgrown child.
if california you can actually get her arrested. it’s illegal in california to get out of your car and approach another driver in a hostile manner. became law a few years ago
That’s not an adult, that’s a spoiled brat child who just got bigger and old enough to drive. Lovely
"I guess I live here now"
You don’t have a favorite pump!?
An actual public freak out, thank you.
I would've gotten out and started cleaning my windows, then maybe head inside to get a hot dog and something to drink. maybe a few scratchers. hopefully you win something with the scratchers so then you have an excuse to go back in, maybe get a slurpie if it's 7/11, pop in the bathroom really quick. etc
You know your life is too good when you get this pissed that someone pulled into the pump before you did.
Maybe that spot had sentimental value. Like maybe she lost her virginity at that pump? Maybe it’s where she has the most luck conceiving? Or she sees Jesus’ reflection on the panel when her tank is full?
Maybe its Maybelline
I would never move. Even if I had to have Uber Eats bring me food to survive before I would move for that cunt.
I too am a master grudge holder. I specialize in driving half the speed limit if someone rides my ass.
Land Rovers are giant pieces of shit.
Range rovers are even shittier cause they cost more.
