Check The Pump Button

Gabe reports going to his local Sunoco and pressing the button for 87 Octane. When he checked his receipt, he found he was being charged $3.16/gallon instead of the expected $2.96/gallon

He writes, “I looked at the pump, and the Ultra Premium 94 button was stuck. I pulled out the button so the next poor soul filling up didn’t get stuck…I only noticed the mistake because I print out receipts for tracking my budget.”

Sticky buttons turn to sticky fingers…

    This same thing happened to me, except at an ATM. The $100 button was stuck.

    I hit the 87 Octane button yesterday and was charged $2.66/gallon. Oh, the joy of living in a flyover state…

    Same thing happend to me playing Street Fighter 2. Stupid kick button was stuck down and my guy kept hoping around kick everything. I still won, but I was pissed.

  4. I once had a nozzle spew gasoline all over the place before I’d gotten it to my gas tank because the last person to use it left that lever up that squeezes the handle for you.

    At least you didn’t have a freak gasoline fight accident, Rectilinear Propagation.
