Your Argument Is Full Of Hot Air

| Campbell, CA, USA | Uncategorized

(Our gas station’s air pump is broken so we have taken both air hoses and put them under the cover they normally stick through. A customer drives up, give me his credit card, and starts to pump gas.)

Customer: “Where are your air hoses?”

Me: “The air pump is broken, so we don’t have the air hoses out.”

Customer: “Okay.”

(Despite what I said, the customer opens the air pump cover, pulls one of the hoses out, and goes over to his car tire and tries to put air in it. A few minutes later, he comes back to my booth.)

Customer: “I think your air is broken. It’s deflating my tire!”

Me: “Yes, as I said earlier, it’s broken. That’s why the hose was under the cover.”

Customer: “Now my tire is almost flat! You are going to need to pay for a tow to another gas station.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but I told you that the pump was broken. I also put the hoses under the cover. You decided to pull them out and try to use them anyway.”

Customer: *yelling* “You should pay for my tow! If I ruin my rim driving to go get air I’m going to make you pay for it!”
