We Give You Gas, You Give Us Money. NOT ROCKET SCIENCE.

I work at a gas station. One day, this old lady comes in and asks my coworker to put gas in her car for her because she doesn’t know how to. He helps her and the whole time is very polite to her.

Lady: “For some reason, everywhere I go, everybody gets mad at me. Today, I didn’t want to pay for parking, and the parking workers didn’t let me leave until I paid for my parking ticket!”

After that, they both come inside.

Lady: *To me* “How much do I have to pay?”

Me: “That’ll be [price].”

She looks around her wallet a little bit.

Lady: “Oh, I guess I don’t have enough money. Well, I come here all the time; I’ll bring it next time.”

My coworker and I look at each other.

Me: “How much do you have, ma’am?”

Lady: “[About 40€ less than the total].”

Me: *Politely* “Okay. You go home get the money and get back here in about an hour max. We don’t have to call the police; just be here as soon as you can, and all will be good.”

She seems offended.

Lady: “I don’t want to drive home and then back here for just 40€!”

Me: “Ma’am, we work until 2:00 pm. If you don’t bring the money by then, we have to pay that 40€ that you don’t have.”

Lady: *Shocked* “But I’m a regular customer! And I’m from a wealthy family. My brother is a lawyer! You should treat me more nicely!”

I’m already so annoyed and shocked that I’m having this conversation with a grown woman.

Lady: “You are so insensitive and cheap! You won’t pay that 40€ that I don’t have?!”

She just goes on and on. Eventually, when we mention the police, another 100€ appears in her bag and she is able to pay. Before leaving, she says:

Lady: “You’re a horrible person! No wonder you work at a gas station.”

I love my job.
