Gas Stations

I know I started a discussion about line jumpers at the grocery stores in the past, now I would like to talk about a totally different type of line jumper, We all stop at one point or another because we need some gas in our car and sometimes that gas station is so busy long lines just like the stores we go but there is that one person yes the gas blocker! I mean there is so much room for them to move up a little and let someone else put gas in too okay!!! Some people might be running late somewhere and this really annoys me! Does this sort of thing make you mad like me?

I think that people now days don't think about others. They are very self involved and really do not care about anything but themselves. I was brought up by my grandmother and always taught to think of others and be respectful. I wish life were more like it was then.

I agree I was brought up the same way to respect others and I wish the same.

that happens here in mexico, the gas attendants take the better looking cars before the not so good looking ones. I dont think thats fair at all.

Well, I'm sorry if I introduce a question, your car is powered by gasoline or diesel? Well, beyond the code, which is often, the drivers too little "smart" create an area of ??service that may leave to others, in Italy we have a much bigger problem, which concerns precisely the price of fuel! Now both petrol and diesel are on the threshold of € 2 (equal to 2.6 U.S. dollars) per liter! A figure entirely unreasonable considering that for many people the use of a car is essential, even if only to go to work!

It is just regular unleaded gas in my car and gas here is three dollars and some cents a gallon which is ridiculous and makes me happy to work at home.

Thanks a ton for sharing the discussion. Well yes u can find people with myriad expressions and activities at a gas station, while some are busy and hurrying to be on time at their workplace, while some are easy going and are patient enough to wait for their turn to come. Besides u can also find some eateries and some recreational centers around it where u can unwind also and this is a great thing. What say?

Thanks for the response it just irks me when they know there is someone waiting and they are just sitting there with a lot of room in front of them.

I know a lot of people who are like this, and inconsiderate. And then if you try to move up in front of them everyone complains, etc. so you just wish there was a way to show them the etiquettes of waiting for gas. Sometimes I have also seen the people who do not pull up close enough to the pump to block both aisles. Just can be quite frustrating.
