I don’t know how true this is but i found this in my (email) inbox.
My girlfriend was “swindled” of her paid petrol at the a-certain-Petrol Station.
“2 Guys at the station, 1 waiting near the payment counter, 1 holding two empty tanks waiting nearby the pumpstation. While my girlfriend moved towards the payment counter, the guy near the payment counter unintentionally cut her queue and made a minimum payment at the counter (eg; Rm5). After paying, knowing which pump station my girlfriend came from, he quickly signalled his friend with the empty tanks to go to the pump station. When my girlfriend paid, the cashier activated the pump for the paid amount. Before she could walk back to her car, the guy has already started filling up the petrol at my gf’s pump station. When she asked what he was doing, he simply showed her the receipt saying that he has paid. Not knowing what was going on, she just waited for him to finish. The meter showed the exact amount that she has paid. She realised something was amissed. When she lift the pump for her turn, no petrol came out. The guy has swindled her paid petrol.
Eventually she found out that the guy paid RM5 for another pump, and used her’s which she paid RM50 instead. She complained to the petrol attendant but that guy just turned a deaf ear, saying it was not his fault and asked my gf to chase after that 2 guys! What the heck?? Is that how you trained your staff to be helpful to your customers?!!It’s giving a bad image to your station. He kept on saying that he would lose if he gave her back what she paid. Then who’s paying back what she lost??
After 30mins of argument and with the help of other customers and asking to see the CCTV, the attendant finally gave in. I’ve already complained to the Petrol Station’s company via their website, not sure whether they are going to do anything about it until something really bad happen! (Malaysian Style…sighhh!) Luckily her car was locked and not robbed of her valuables by the guy waiting at the pump. REMEMBER to always lock your car though you are away for a second.”
I don’t know whether or not this story is true. If it is true, it seems like a juicy highliners for Malay Mail or Metro. Nevertheless, it ended up as a chain mail. Could this be a fake story?
Looking at the whole scenerio,I was thinking “how come the lady in the story is so damn dumb one?” Don’t everyone know that if we park our car or motorbike next to a pump and went to pay for our petrol, technically speaking and logically, this mean we are buying the petrol from that pump. If anyone cut que, we should be angry at the fellow and ask him to bugger off. But NO…it doesn’t happen in this story. The lady happily waited for the fellow to fill up the petrol into his stupid tanks. I wonder if the lady has license to drive!!! How can you not know that!!! Isn’t this a simple fact?
BTW, i am also not too sure about the moral of the story because the last paragraph said “pump. REMEMBER to always lock your car though you are away for a second.” but the title said “My girlfriend was “swindled” of her paid petrol at the a-certain-Petrol Station.” Could the moral of the story be “Don’t let your woman pump petrol for her car alone” or “Is it don’t let people cut que when you pay for your petrol”? hmmm…could the moral of the story is “You know my story is fake but you give a damn about it and you pass it around. YOU ARE STUPID”
