United States - 60109
I was on my way home, when noticed I needed a gas, I also had a lottery ticket wich I purchased at the BP, in Burlington, Illinois
at the Burlington Oasis on 125 Plank Road. I had been there a few times and I thought the guy who sold me the ticket was very nice I played the Powerball the first time it was sold in Illinois, and he adviced me to pay the extra dollar so if I won, It would be double, and so I did. When I walked into the gas station on Monday Feb.15 at (17:57:19) it was 6:00pm I waited my turn in line, there was a woman cashier behind the register and I was a little nervous because she had been rude to me last time I was there. It took her a while to get to me she was taking her time with a red head talking and getting her lottery tickets and scratchoffs, and before asking me what I neede she said to the red head "is there anything else I can get for you honey?" I handed her my ticket and explained to her what the guy at the register had mentioned about the double pay, she immediately said thats not ours we don't sell those here, her friend(the red head who she was gossiping with) turned to me and said that's Indiana lotto, so I said, I have not been to Indiana, but I will come back when the nice gentleman who sold me the ticket is here. I said, I also need twenty dollars of gas but wasn't sure what number pump, and with a nasty attitude( she didn't bother to look behind her after I described my car to her) she says to me "well there are a lot of cars out there I sure as hell don't know which one is yours". So I said o.k and went towards the door and looked at the number and said to her "it's number three" she then proceded to ring me up chuckling and looking at other customers as if she was having fun with me, I did not think it was funny, I paid with my debit card and waited for my receipt, she didn't bother to give it to me and went to the next customer, without asking if I needed anything else, so by then I was upset and told her she was rude, and could I just get my receipt so I could get the heck out of there, and I would just come back when the nice guy was there, as I was leaving she threatened me said she was calling the cops and she would not sell me anything more, and told me to leave as she proceded to take down my license, she yelled "You don't have to stand there and be a ###!" I did not deserve that and she was totally out of line. Being a paying customer I feel that every paying customer should be treated with respect, this woman humiliated me, embarrased me in front of others, and accused me of I don't know what, disrupting? possibly because I did not run when she threatened me with calling the cops I did nothing wrong other than Not be White, I am certain she is racist she only treated me that way because she did not like the color of my skin. I sat and waited for the Police to come, I then decided to call them myself wich is what I should have done when she called me a ### and yelled at me, and was taking my plate number. If this is a "White Premises Only" there should be a sign posted, to avoid such humiliating situations. I hope this does not happen to anyone else but I certainly will let other people know, about that particular woman who should not be working with the public. If some one could please get back to me so I know that something will be done about this, you can reach me at [protected]@yahoo.com Please if there are videos of this gas station please review it and if I were to be at fault I would apologize, but if other wise I know I deserve an apology.
Thank you for your time,
S.C. PS report #10-3198 her name will be on this report.
