People who do this at petrol stations should be banned from driving (serious thread)

I see lots of people complaining about public situations, slow walking, people blocking isles, etc. but none of those really get to me. Sure, they're annoying and make me want to break bones, but nothing too drastic. The following, however, makes me want to KILL, KILL, KILL.

So you've pulled into a petrol station to top up. All pumps are taken and quite a queue is forming - no problem though. You wait behind the car that's topping up in front. She's taking her sweet time, put on the plastic gloves and obviously so weak she can't press the pump further than a millimeter, so petrol is trickling out like a dripping tap. But ok, no problem, I'm calm. Oops, she's left her handbag in the car. Ok, we all do that sometimes, not to worry. Eventually she finds her handbag, sifts through it and finds some money. Off she goes to pay for petrol. She comes out some time later, and I feel relieved that my thirsty car can finally get hydrated.

She gets into her car. She puts her bag down. Then what's this? What in ****s name is this? Why isn't the engine starting? She can move forward to the almighty spaces in front of her, or at least forward enough for the queue to get going. No, she's ****ing about and her car is going NOWHERE. Ok, now I'm angry. Why is she being this selfish? Is she oblivious to what's going on behind her? Does she think she's the only person in the world? I see things being moved around in her car, a phone comes out. Lipstick. Mother of a thousand ****s, I can't believe it.

Like 2 weeks later she finally moves off at a snails pace while applying some makeup.

I'm furious and about ready to open fire on the pump out of frustration. My faith in humanity is lost and I'm convinced everyone is out for themselves. Why in christ can't she move forward then **** about with her nonsense? Why?

People who get petrol then proceed to sit in their car and not move forward deserve to be run over by a filling truck.

I might have the odd 'lol' on hotukdeals, but I'm dead serious here.

Nah, that lady is just fine - we've all had those wonky pumps. I doubt anyone on HotUKDeals can induce this kind of frustration from topping up their car, everyone here knows the score.

Totally agree.
Spend way to long waiting for exactly the same person.
The only part you missed out was another really frustrating part, when they have retrieved
their handbag from the back seat ( or even the boot!! ) they enter the petrol station ( no queue to
pay ) but, by the time they have viewed all the magazines picked up 500 chocolate bars and got
a 3 ton pick and mix or whatever, the queue is now 8 people deep to pay!!!!

Oh so true - and not only 'their boot' but 'the boot of their 4x4'. Jesus Christ!

Oh and the window shoppers at busy filling stations... oh man

yes, how can the smallest of places with the same "overpriced" items in take
so long to walk around ( and for that matter how does such a place attract "window shoppers"
in the first place?!? )

I've taken it upon myself to push any trolley that's been left in the middle of an isle somewhere else, especially if the person sees me coming and just can't be bothered to move it. I honestly die a little inside when I'm in filling stations or supermarkets at times. :x

here's an obvious tip when about to join a queue. Never sit behind a 4x4 etc or better still why not just drive into the space ahead of the woman pfaffing about and then proceed to take ages.

and them fking scooters should give a little leccy jolt to the driver everytime they come into contact with another human being. And they shouldnt be allowed on the roads ....:x

why cant people choose papers on the garage forecourt like ther3e is some sort of mental block ....your not having your car serviced while you wait .....so choose the bloody paper and pay for your fuel and do one ! QUICKLY or just quicker than reverse!!! hurump:x

OMG your so right with what your moaning about, im get so annoyed with these types of people. Same types of people (probably) that:-

Drive in the middle lane for no reason (argh)
Drive around with fog lights on (i can see you, you dont look cool)
When a sign says 30 (1 mile ahead) and they start doing 30 from the sign (READ YOU TIT)
People who speed through AVERAGE speed checks then slow down for the camera (JUST STUPID)
When your coming off a motorway and there is a moving queue of people in front of you and its perfectly clear behind, yet that bloody car/van coming up behind cant wait and pulls round you then cuts you up (ITS CLEAR BEHIND ME MORON)

there is maybe, 1 million more annoying things, maybe more. Bottom line, get off the road!!!

/rant (for now :P )

I do that , push their trolley or nudge it and say in a depressed voice "SCUSE ME " they give the obligitory "sorry " then go back to their wandering mind and a glazed look appears over their face again ...... you know it doesnt stop there as you will meet them guaranteed in the next aisle or the one after that ..... an go through the process again , however you know at some point they will start to see you coming and then pop back into our world again momentaritly to make sure they dont get any more "SCUSE ME" s

why do peope always pull out in front of you in the fast lane then SLOW DOWN whats that all ab0out .....LET ME PAST . once they do decide to pull back in again , WHY DO THEY THEN INSIST ON SPEEDING UP I'm in a diesel , you have slowed me down to 45-50 miles per hour . I was doing 84 ....now i know your trying to be cocky and speeding up but the fact is Im flooring mine to get back up to 84 again , whereas you just have decided to speed up ....

Others on the motorway .......how many peopole realise when you fgo on a motorway , YOU HAVE TO GIVE WAY before joining , its not your god given right for us already on there to move over ....wait your turn

Me and you alike!

I totally agree!

Definately with you on that one.

Here's another..... people who drive on roads which have the national speedlimit sign (no numbers) so on a single road should be doing 60mph, oooooh no they haven't got a clue what the sign means so they do say 34mph!

Why do oap's get a free bus pass.... to get them off the road! So why don't they take the polite hint and get off the roads. The amount of near accidents I see from unknowing oap's who don't know how to indicate, use a roundabout, put the brakes on or even stop at red lights! This is a generalisation here and I don't mean spritely oap's, I mean the ones who can't see over the steering wheel, flat cap drivers, the ones when they get out of the car they can't even walk.

People who hog the middle lane and fast lanes on motorways, MOVE OVER! Then you have the ones on the motorways who break.... BREAK, oh did you know that's how tailbacks are caused. Just take you foot off the acelerator.

I could go on and on, but I shall finish with this one..... if you pull out on me, please drive at the speed limit and not slow right down causing me to swear profusely at you.

Please check your mirrors whilst driving, that huge queue is caused by your slow driving.

WELL SAID ! police need to do people for driving really overlycautious aaswell
banned#28
Totally agree with OP, I sometimes even move forward straight after filling up if there's a big queue.

People who do 40mph on a national speed limit road then carry on doing 40mph through a 30mph residential area, where I ALWAYS slow down.
#29
Ahhh here is another one......

When its national speed limit single track (so 60..yes 60 NOT 50!!!!) and they do 40....then it goes to a 30 zone..and they still do 40...now...if you had done the CORRECT speed limit in the national speed limit area you wouldnt 'have' to speed in the 30 zone you stupid person. Learn, learn fast, and learn away from me!!

Same, just rolling forward a few feet is all it takes. I'm sometimes clambering to put my wallet away if I've got a lot of stuff with me, but don't let it hold anyone else up.

People who are this selfish at filling stations are holding up society and in turn holding up evolution. More research is needed here imo, preferably very risky research involving dangerous, experimental tests on the culprits.

Why do people all queue at the pumps which are the side their filler caps are on?
Loads of times I see massive queues at the petrol stations and there will be about 8 free pumps but no one uses them as they are too stupid to just pull the pump around their car to the other side and fill up instead of having a queue out onto the road!
banned#35
but surely there is little point in moving forward at the pump as the pump will be out of action until you have paid so at most saves about 20 seconds which is less than you having to get back in the car, restart and move forward and get out again.......................

I would have thought the Police and Goverment want everyone to drive like that if possible...but i do agree with the old people. Me and the GF was stuck behind an old person on a country road on Saturday and because it had lots of bends she couldnt over take...I think I was getting more annoyed and I wasnt even the one driving

EXACTLY what i was just about to say :-D

Plus the getting back in the car part, well you pay, then you got to put your change away/card in wallet, put receipt in wallet. Put wallet in pocket, fasten seatbelt, put keys in ignition and start the engine before you drive away. All takes time. Some motorists are so impatient, what they hold you up for the most, at 2 minutes, maybe 1 minute, if you time it, although it probably seems longer.

Just calm down people, life's not a race.

He/I mean after we've paid and got back in the car, started the engine. The pump's free then so no need to hog it any longer than needed :thumbsup:
