(At our gas station, you can either fill first and pay with cash inside, or use a credit card at the pumps. A customer stomps into the station and glares at me.)

Me: “Hi!”

Customer: *glaring continues*

(I assume he is there to pay for his gas. It happens all the time that the customers expect me to know this without them saying anything.)

Me: “How can I help you today?”

Customer: *still glaring*

Me: “Alright, pump 5, is it? That will be $23.50, please.”

(The customer sighs loudly, whips out his wallet, and begins to furiously go through his cash. He then throws a 20 at me before finally speaking.)

Customer: “Well, I don’t have that much!”

Me: “Oh, do you happen to have a credit card perhaps?”

Customer: “NO!”

(For a few seconds we stand there staring at one another. I can tell that this situation won’t get any better.)

Me: “…You know what, I’ll just pay the rest for you.”

Customer: *turns and stomps out in a huff*
