    You should have picked a line and stayed with it.

    They do come with warnings not to use them to trim hedges. Funny until you realize every one of those rediculous warnings came about as a result of somebody actually doing it.

    I prefer to go in. I mean after all i get to chat with and see nicole and jessika they are both cute and friendly. Now Emily shes on another level always dressed to the nines she is for sure a beautiful woman. But yeah just pick a lane. My favorite gas station only has two dedicated diesel pumps. With like 15 gas pumps as well as two of those gas and diesel double ones i will avoid it if possible so people getting diesel dont have to wait so long. Especially when the buffalos are in getting donuts and coffee while their car sits at the pump. It doesnt take much to be nice to folks. Maybe some day they will RAK it back to you.

    why would you do that intentionally. Plenty of people do it unintentionally because they don't realize their error. you sound like a royal jack ass. doing stuff intentionally to irritate and inconvenience others. get a life, or a hobby. idiot. I guess you should do it at truck stops too, because truckers are "in the minority" of vehicles on the road, what an absolutely absurd and stupid statement.

    I hate to be offensive, but that says more about you than them.

    People irritate me too, but most of them are not idiots, and sometimes I am the one being boneheaded. It happens to us all.

    I like the way you think, and that's the problem right there, you're doing something clever that most people can't understand unless it's explained to them...and then it's iffy.

    If I pulled up behind you and saw you looking at me in your rearview mirror, I'd smile, nod, and give you a thumbs up. Your fighting an uphill battle in your effort to educate the world and change peoples behavior.

    I try to do the same thing you do. Sometimes it works.

    That crap happens around me ALL THE TIME. When I want fuel and then to pick up more than a couple of quick items, I'll go out and move the car from the pump to a parking spot to free the pump up for others.

    About a decade ago the fuel jobber who supplies diesel to the county's transit bus depot accidently pulled a load of regular gas from the terminal rack and dumped it into the depot's underground tank. Bus service was really disrupted that day as busses died on their routes, and the jobber had to pay for replacing a bunch of bus engine fuel pumps. I'm surprised someone didn't notice the smell and catch it early.

    Meh, I didn't retire to listen to bonehead I don't want to listen to or read their comments.

    I don't socialize with people who irritate me. Why would I care what they have to say here?
