So this weekend has been made doubly special by a certain crazed and rude gas station attendant. Seriously, I'm ... pretty much speechless by some of the things he did and said.
Here's a little background: I was just going down to the local Mobil gas station to well, obviously, get gas and a car wash. First time I swipe my card: the screen said I should go inside to pay the cashier, then it returned to the main menu again. ...Even though my card went through with no problems and stuff and was approved and all that jazz.
SO okay. I went inside. The attendant guy asked me how much gas I want (40 bucks, 20 bucks, etc), and I told him that I needed the full tank, but not sure how much that would be, and explained to him that his uh, pump might be kinda wonky. Also told him that I need a code for the car wash (which needs a credit card or something). He told me that the pump should be working now, and to try again. OKAY, reasonable. So I went back to try again.
This time, the screen said that I needed to "SEE THE CASHIER FOR AUTHORIZATION," after I punched in all the info (you know, like, zip code, what kind of gas, etc etc). Not even "PLEASE PAY THE CASHIER INSIDE." The screen then changed to say "AUTHORIZATION NEEDED" or something like that. Then it completely froze. Problem = going back in to see the cashier. It's pretty clear by now that there's a problem with their pump. ( Collapse )
OH, but it does not end there, nono. I called 411 to get the number of the gas station, so I could call the next day to ask another attendant for the manager's name. Ended up talking to A manager of A Mobil gas station, and he was pretty pissed off at the behavior of the attendant (apparently, they have an attendant by the same name as the crazy one who I encountered, AND whenever this guy's on the job, stuff always goes missing), and said I should come in today in person to file a complaint and to sort things out. All seems well, and I revisit the scene of the crime, so to speak.( Collapse )
Honestly, how did this guy get a job in the first place?
