This Customer’s A Real Gas

, , , , | Right | April 12, 2019

(In the state of Iowa, ethanol in super unleaded fuel is subsidized so it is typically much less expensive than regular unleaded. I am working at a gas station off the interstate that has a large sign visible from the highway and a street sign that only displays our lowest-price fuel, super unleaded. A customer from out of state comes in upset after pumping gas, accusing me of over-charging him and misleading customers about our price per gallon.)

Me: “I apologize, sir. I’ll look into it.”

(I walk out to the dispenser with him, look it over, nod, and point at the PPG display above each grade.)

Me: “Yeah, this is all correct. See? Regular is [price] and super is [price], just like the sign says.”

(As I point to the street sign, steam starts shooting out of this guy’s ears and he responds:)

Customer: “Well, you could’ve made that sign larger!”

Me: “We did.” *as I point to the massive sign visible from the highway, looming over the store*

Customer: “Uh… Yeah… Well, you’re starving Mexicans!”

Me: “What?!”

Customer: “You are personally responsible for the deaths of millions of Mexicans! Does that make you happy? This is bulls***!”

Me: “Okay, then. Have a nice day.”
