What is wrong with people at petrol stations??

Once they have filled up,why in Gods name cant they pull forward BEFORE they go into the shop to pay,allowing those behind to start filling their tanks??

15 minutes we spent tonight,in baking heat waiting for some inconsiderate trollop to peruse every magazine in the shop before paying.

its infuriating!

one day I shall run amok with a large knife in a petrol station,and NOBODY will blame me!

set a timer next time, if he spends more then 5 minutes, soak his car in petrol then torch it. that will save you from having to carry a knife around with you - a knife could get you in trouble

Can't use it until the previous person has paid. It then clears the pump for the next customer.

even more reason why 15 minutes browsing magazines should be punishable by death!

Yeah pull forward and trigger the drive off systems. If I see you at a petrol station behind me, not only will I not pull forward, but I'll also
reverse into your car and write it off :-p

This, plus you'd get "the look" from old people thinking your pulling a runner without paying.

we pull forward before paying all the time-never triggered a "drive off system"-maybe these are only in deprived areas with high crime?

There's a total garage in bramley, Rotherham which has crazy spikes that come up at the exits if you drive off!
#13
As has been said, there's no point in driving off, as you can't fill up until the other person has paid anyway, and secondly, in the petrol stations i use, if you pull forward, then you'll be blocking the exit.

Plus, i don't have to wait in sweltering heat, i have air conditioning.

Not strictly true - most systems can handle two transactions and allow auths on pumps before the previous customer has paid. It can be slightly unnerving however for the cashier behind the till to see the customer jump into their vehicle and start moving before payment....

Only people living in slums have no air con in their car!

I get looks from all ages if I pull forward, some that are only just old enough to drive.:roll:

I've driven off without paying before and never set them off, (it was a genuine mistake though I was so drunk I forgot all about paying)




























Joking I genuinely did forget to pay! Drove straight back and paid though.

I say old people as they are normally the first to make their opinions obvious. Not that its limited to just that age group though. Everyone seems to think they know best these days and they feel they must let everyone in on there superior insight.

if its long enough then you could fill up your car in that time and let him/her pay for it lol.
#23
The pumps I use have at least two pumps in line so that unless you are the front person, you can't pull forward by much anyway.

And why drive bumper to bumper? What if you needed to get out of there in a hurry.
I always leave enough room for an escape route in front of me. :thumbsup:

Exactly rubbish more like. I always pull forward off to the side if there is a queue. Person behind has no problem filling up. What do you think happens when someone bilks? That pump is out of order till they come back and pay?

A couple of weeks a go this pompous git got out his car and started directing the traffic on the forecourt to which pumps 'he' wanted them to use. He must have been a teacher or something and forgot he wasn't in school because everyone just laughed at him.

They should have more 'pay at the pump' systems in my opinion. 99% of people pay with cars now anyway.

Damn!! :w00t: I knew there was a price rise but didn't think it would get to the stage where we have to trade in our car for fuel :roll:

Wow. I know Petrol is expensive, but I've never seen anyone hand over their car to pay for it.

Does everyone have cheap and nasty cars where you live JTT?

You don't pay by cars? You mean those things with wheels are more than single use.

Damn. No wonder the bank balance is looking pretty crappy.

Mostly Audi. I do like to be different though:

I was trying to be funny on this glorious morning but if it helps you get through your morning coffee:

"I, JONNYTWOTOES, LEFT OUT A 'D' IN THE WORD 'CARD'. I AM DEEPLY ASHAMED. PLEASE PUNISH ME AS AND HOW YOU SEE FIT."
