One-Woman Wrecking Crew

| | Right | February 5, 2008

Woman: “I’ve been standing out there trying to pump gas for the last 10 minutes! Your @&$%*# gas pump is broken!”

Me: “I’m sorry. I’ll go out with you and see what I can do.”

(I see a bright red “Out of Order” bag on the nozzle; she had shoved everything into her tank, bag and all.)

Me: “Yes, that pump is broken. You’ll need to pull up to another pump.”

Woman: “Oh, well you guys should really mark it better. I wasted a lot of time here!”

Me: “Um…yes, we usually put a traffic cone in front.”

Woman: “Oh yeah…I saw it, but I didn’t know what it was for, so I just drove over it.”

(The cone was wedged under her car.)

    I actually believe this story because i work in an arcade. When we close down we shut off all the games and midways so people know we’re closed. Its bad enough when a kid puts money into one when its off but I seen adults do it too. I even seen them do in one that’s clearly broken or owes tickets and then they complain to me.
