    Thankful For Thank Yous

    | New York, USA | Awesome Customers, Theme Of The Month

    Me: “Hi, can you please fill it up with regular?”

    Employee: “Sure, no prob—Wait!”

    Me: “Is there a problem with my card? Can I use my debit card instead?”

    Employee: “No, no! The card’s fine! You’re the nice customer!”

    Me: “…I’m sorry. I don’t know what you’re referring to.”

    Employee: “You were filling up your gas tank earlier this month. It was my first week of training and I was trying to figure out the machines because I used to work at a station where we brought credit cards inside to be processed. This crazy lady started screaming at me because she got charged for premium gas and she didn’t want it. Then your credit card didn’t work because I forgot to hit some buttons or something. While she spent 10 minutes screaming at me, you waited there patiently without screaming at me or trying to get my attention. It was only after she left that I realized your car hadn’t been filled yet. You didn’t say anything mean; you just smiled and told me not to worry about it.”

    Me: “Oh yeah… I remember that lady. Boy, wasn’t she a bundle of joy to be around? Has she been back since?”

    Employee: “Maybe? Well, I told my coworker Eddie about you and he said you’re the only customer who consistently is polite and says “Please” and “Thank you” and you’re the only who treats us as equal human beings! Thank you for that!”

    Me: “Wow… well, you’re welcome. Just try to avoid crazy customers! Stay warm!”

    Employee: “Seriously, thank you! You have no idea how nice it is!”
