    Come to think of it....it has been a long time since I heard over any intercom the old line.....

    Drivers, when your done fueling pull forward!

    Too many languages to put the message out in I guess!

    You tell'em the rule Red Hot Mess....Now that you have the slow truck you need fuel as fast as you can get it so you can pass them on the hi-way.

    How about this one? Seen it many times. Driver fuels, hangs up nozzles, goes inside. Comes out 10 minutes later, pulls up, then go:biggrin_2556:es back inside! Grrrrrr

    I know I'm new, but I try to be nice to other drivers. We're all out here to make a living, saying that I will say this...

    I CAN'T stand when people use the fuel island as a parking spot. If all I wanna do is clean my windows and get some coffee then I'll clean my windows, pull up, THEN go inside. I try to take the least amount of time on a break, 5 minutes max. I'm never in a rush, I can't be in a truck that's governed to 61 lol.

    I try to help other drivers by not being that guy who parks in the fuel island, some drivers might not have the time limit on their loads like I do, so I try to help when I can.
