(I was in line to pay for a snack at a local convenience store when an elderly woman comes in, heads right to the front of the line.)

Customer: “My gas tank isn’t filled.”

Employee: “I’m sorry, I’m waiting on these customers right now. ¬†If you get in line, I’ll be happy to–”

Customer: “No!¬†Your gas isn’t filling my tank, and I want to know why.”

Manager: “I’m sorry, may I help you?”

Customer: “Your gas doesn’t fill up my tank. I came in with less than half a tank and your gas didn’t even fill it up three quarters of the way!”

Manager: “I’m sorry, ma’am. ¬†I’ll have someone come in and look at the pump you were using. ¬†For right now, you’re welcome to go to one of our other pumps and finish filling your tank.”

Manager: “When was this?”

Customer: “That doesn’t matter! ¬†My son-in-law has been pumping my gas since. ¬†I’ve given him $10 and it’s filled up my tank every time. You’re trying to take advantage of me because I’m an old woman!”

Manager: “Yes, ma’am. Sorry about the trouble. Good luck with all that…”
