Once I was pumping gas at a gas station where the pump kept catching/stopping, so I had to sit there and manually pump gas into my car. A man around my age was watching me and felt the need to get out of his car to explain to me that “umm…. when the pump stops, that means the gas tank is full”. I was already a bit annoyed with the pump, but I replied as kindly as possible “Yes sir, thank you. It’s actually NOT full, as the indicator shows I’ve only put 6 gallons in the tank so far and my tank was empty when I started. Sometimes gas pumps catch if the flow is too fast. But thanks”. What I wanted to say was “Wow, I’ve been driving for 10 years, and this is the first time I’ve ever had to put gas in my car. Thank you so much for taking the time to teach me how a gas pump works. If it wasn’t for you I’d probably be standing here until gasoline started flowing down into the street”.
