So anyway I am filling the truck with gas. It is freezing cold (not that important). When one of the workers comes out to check the trash cans. You know the trash cans that are maybe a foot from the the row of gas tanks. OK-- so she is checking the one next to my pump and I notice. She is SMOKING!!!!! Yes, she has a cigarette in her mouth while she is checking out the trash.
OK--at this point I am thinking boy--isn't this dangerous??
So what do you think I did? What would you do?
She starts to remove the garbage can liner--it is windy and cold. Then she decides to put that liner back in.
Thinking it might be rude to tell her that it is extremely dangerous to be smoking next to the gas pumps. If I really wanted to be a friend I would tell her that smoking is extremely dangerous.
Well as I am freezing and not sure what Ms. Manners would do. I do the only thing I could think of when I only had feeling in one of my hands. Yes, I helped her put the trash liner back into the garbage can and told her to have a good day.
Now--in my defense--I did call back to the gas station later and tell a worker. I am thinking that I might call back again and talk to a manager.
So what do you think? What would you have done?
