The Difficulties of Gas Pumping

The Difficulties of Gas Pumping

Gas pumping can provide many difficult hardships. Imagine pulling up to a gas station, turning your car off, having to remove your seat belt, and checking for trash in your car to dispose of it. You get out of your car to pay for gas, and as soon as you get to the clerk, you realize you left your money in the car. You return to your car and get your money; and when you see the clerk again, you say “Can I get twenty dollars worth of gas?” The clerk says, “Sure, for what pump?” You did not look at the pump number when you were at your car, so you look outside and see it is pump number two. You finally exchange your money for your gas, but when you get outside, you find out that the pump number is really twelve and not two. You try to hurry up and move your car to pump number twelve, but someone is already there. Yu are now irritated because of the little mistakes you keep making. You get out of the car and have the worst attitude with the person who is at the pump because they are trying to steal the gas you just paid for. They are scared of you and hurry up and drive off. You felt really bad about the altercation, but you pump your gas anyway. Once you finish you put the pump away, but you forget to close your gas tank. When you arrive home, you realize all of the gas you pumped was wasted onto the street and you come to the conclusion that you’ve had the worst day ever.
