"thats the most gas we ever sold at once"




Sorry to say, I've heard it several times.

this is a true story, sware to god. I pulled up to the pumps at a marina in lake george to fill the boat up but I had to piss in the worst way. so I tie up and run up to the bathroom, maybe about 75 feet. when I came out of the bathroom the manager had untied my boat and set it afloat, I was pissed, I told him to go get my boat, he said it was not his problem, I gave him one warning then grabbed him by his face and threw him in the water, then I told him if he got out of the lake with out getting my boat I was going to introduce him to a paddle that was setting beside the pump. long story short, He did drag my boat in and even let me get gas, not another word was said. and by the way there was no one behind me waiting for gas.

I represented a gas station owner in his business affairs for a while. His name was Carlos and he was a red neck from West Virginia. Go figure. He had a taste for old Cadillacs and whiskey, and always stuffed his cash in a dirty old athletic sock (the kind that are knee high with two bands at the top and are sold 6 pairs to a pack at K-Mart). So one Friday, he stuffs a sock with $10k from the station, throws it in the trunk of his old Caddie, and heads towards WVA. He stops at a diner on the way and his car is stolen right out of the parking lot. He is displeased.

A week later, the car is found near some quarry. Radio and most of the dash is gone. Tires gone and many other parts. He goes to the impound lot to retrieve what's left of his car, opens the trunk, and there, in plain view, is his dirty althetic sock, unmolested, with all $10k inside. That day, I stopped giving him sh!t about his "wallet."

Went to the gas station to fill the boat up for the end of the season. (35 Fountain on a Myco trailer). Pulled in and swung into the pump area. Topped off the starboard side, went to fill the port side but the damn hose won't reach......No problem.....Yeah right. I hop in the truck and and begin to back up, as I do this I have to swing trailer around about 90 degrees along side the vaccuum station. My buddy yells...HOE....HOE.... And I reply I see it.....(the metal bollards filled with concrete to protect those damn vaccuums). So.....I'm sitting there waiting for some old man to pull away from the pump.....and I think to myself......I'm going to swing wide.....As the old man pulls away.......You guessed it....I swung wide and
KA- BOOM!!!!! The trailer tire blows out, rim is bent and the trailer fender is all smashed in. Boy did I feel and look like a idiot. The best part was no one saw me.

Then I filled the port side, pulled the boat home (just a few miles up the rode).
I guess it could have been worse.

So one of my friends was at a gas station and went inside to buy a Mt. Dew and milky way when the attendant told him he cannot buy anything with out buying gas. He then walked outside and picked up the nozzle and sprayed 1 gallon of premium on the ground then walked back inside and told the attendant I take the stuff now that I bought the gas. She was dumbfounded and told him he cannot do that. He said I'll write that down for the next time.
