Gas Station Writes "Big Fat Black Lady" On Customer's Receipt

The gas station clerk needed some way to identify a customer who was returning after being shorted $10 at the gas pump. Before scrawling “Black Lady – Big – Fat” on her receipt, however, he probably should have realized that she would be taking the receipt with her.

Hodges said it was her 6-year-old son who noticed the slight, which hurt even more. She tried contacting the manager, but is still waiting for an apology.

“The lesson they should learn is my money helps run that store,” Hodges said. “And I won’t be going back.”

The customer, it should be noted, didn’t have a problem with the first half of the notation, but found the addition of “Big – Fat” hurtful and unnecessary.
