SELF SERVE GAS STATIONS.

Posted on Tue, Feb 9, 2010 at 12:00 PM

THERE ARE LESS AND LESS ''FULL SERVE'' OPTIONAL GAS STATIONS AND MORE AND MORE SELF SERVE. NOW FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO ARE DISABLED AND IN A WHEELCHAIR I CAN GET OUT OF MY CAR BUT STILL CAN NOT OPERATE THE GAS PUMPS BECAUSE THEY ARE TO HIGH OR HAVE CONCRETE AROUND THEM AND UP TO HIGH. SO I HAVE TO TRY AND FIND A FULL SERVE AND PAY THE EXTRA WHICH I THINK ISNT FAIR JUST BECUASE I CANT PUMP MY OWN FUEL WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR SOMETHING I CANT CONTROL. AND IN THE CITY I CAN COUNT ON ONE HAND THE STATIONS THAT ARE FULL SERVE AND THEY CLOSE THOSE AT AROUND 9. I HAVE HAD TO DRIVE HOME PRAYING THAT I WOULDNT RUN OUT OF FUEL JUST BECAUSE OF THIS. AND NOT JUST ME AS A DISABLED PERSON BUT ALSO THEY ELDERLY SHOULDNT HAVE TO PUMP THERE OWN FUEL AND HAVE TO PAY THE EXTRA JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE OLDER AND UNABLE OR FIND IT HARD . AND WITH THE PRICE OF FUEL IT MAY ONLY BE A FEW CENTS BUT FOR A PERSON ON A FIXED INCOME EVERY PENNY COUNTS. AND STATIONS NOW A DAYS IN THE CITY USUALLY HAVE ONLY ONE PERSON WORKING SO I CANT EVEN ASK FOR HELP BECAUSE THEY CANT LEAVE THE STORE TO COME AND HELP ME. I LIVE IN THE COUNTRY AND I AM LUCKY ONE WAY I HAVE A FULL SERVE NEAR ME BUT IF I WANT TO GO TO THE CITY AFTER NINE AND HAVE NO ONE WITH ME I AM BASICALLY SCREWED. SO I KINDA FIND THIS A FORM OF DISCRIMANATION TOWARD DISABLED AND ELDERLY PEOPLE HAVING TO PAY EXTRA ''IF'' YOU CAN FIND A FULL SERVE. AND WHEN I AM LUCKY ENUFF TO FIND A FULL SERVE THE KIDS THEY HAVE WORKING DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO CHECK OIL OR EVEN OPEN A HOOD. I THINK IF YOUR WORKING FOR A SERVICE STATION YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF A CAR ATLEAST HOW TO CHECK OIL . WELL I COULD GO ON ALOT MORE ABOUT THIS BUT THATS JUST MY RANT I WANTED TO GET OFF MY CHEST.
