Oops! wrong board...mod please move.
This is something that is a minor peeve and I'd like to know if anyone else thinks it is rude.
As many of you know, here in NJ we are forbidden by law to pump our own gas. An attendant has to pump the gas for us. Almost every single time I pull up to the pump, the attendant heads straight for the tank, usually bypassing my window. They wait maybe 2 seconds and bark "open your tank." Even when they attach a please their tone sounds impatient. Before, I open the tank I need to shut my engine off (otherwise, they bark "turn off your engine") and to do that I need to first open my window so I can tell them what I want (ie $40 regular cash). It only takes seconds. I'm usually reaching down to open the latch when they 'bark'. If they would stop by the window first and ask me what I need (instead of standing at an awkward angle behind my head-my tank is on the driver side) I would be ready and it would actually be good customer service.
