"Nice talk for a giiiiirrrrllll!"
Edited on Fri Apr-18-08 06:09 PM by Breeze54
:grr:

I had this shmuck say this to me this morning. I wanted to grab him by the throat and biotch slap him! :P

I was waiting to get gas and all the pumps were full and the woman in front of me was going soooo slow and taking forever and finally two cars left the pumps to the right of me, so I backed up and pulled in over there to the one up front and left space behind me, which was promptly filled by another SUV. (I have a rollerskate! :P) And I get out of the car, take off my gas cap and go to pull up the nozzle and it won't budge! I'm like :wtf: ; so on closer inspection, it's tie-wrapped by a black tie wrap. Now I'm aggravated, as I've been waiting and I'm literally on the fumes and so, I have to put the gas cap back on and then pull out and back into another spot at the next pump. So, I get my gas, finally, and I went inside to pay and I said to the creep behind the counter, "You know, you really should have a sign on that disabled pump and stop wasting people's time." And he says, "Tough. People will figure it out." So I said, "WTF? Real nice that you don't care about inconveniencing your customers! That's pretty fucked up!" And the fat, dirty, unkempt, slob says; "Nice talk for a girl! Here's your change, now get out of here!" I said, "What's my being a woman have to do with anything? You're an idiot!" Mind you I know the owner and have been a customer there for 8 years. I wish he'd been there when this happened. As I was leaving, the idiot went out and put up a sign. ;)

1. My dear Breeze54!
I dunno, but if he thought you were being rude to him, he could be rude right back... :shrug:

Oh, and BTW, I don't think you were rude!

Yes, a sign should have been on the pump!

You can't pay at the pump?

I hate it when I can't...

Better luck next time!

:hug:

8. LOL... I should've!
I mean, what? Women aren't allowed to use 'choice' words? What century is this? :crazy:

And he was at least 20 yrs. younger than me. A girl? I think not!

11. As a proud "foul-mouthed" woman, I've encountered that as well.
Fuckin' misogynist pigs. ;)

3. I'm so glad I live in a state where my fuel is pumped by a friendly man (or woman.)

7. There's only one town that made it a law that the attendent has to pump the gas
Edited on Fri Apr-18-08 06:03 PM by Breeze54

5. Sometimes responding to
idiot's comments like the one you encountered is not worth any further effort on your part. Energy expended and wasted. But . . . hmmmmm . . . you say you know the owner? Now, you can enlighten the owner as to the attendant's attitude. You will be doing a great service not only the the public, but you will be part of the teaching process when that owner (hopefully) reprimands (at the very least) the attendant.

12. I'm thinking about it. But they have a lot of "family" working there.
That guy is a male chauvinist pig, imho. But the owner is really nice.

I just don't want to cause even more problems... for me! :P
