Swifty Gas Station / rude attendant

This past evening I went to the Chase Bank to cash a check. I then went to the Swifty Gas Station where the attendant put the gas into my van for me. I was paying him in cash. My bill came to $45.00 even. I handed him 2 $20's, $2 bill, & 3 $1.oo bills. One of the dollar bills was torn & he said that he couldn't take it. He said that no bank would take it either. I told him that I had just got the money at the bank, & I showed him the envelope from Chase Bank. He kept on asking me for another $1.00 bill. I told him that I didn't have any others. He then said " Do you mean to tell me that I have to take this crinkled up bill that looks like crap'? I just told him once again that that was all that I had. He finally walked away. He didn't thank me for anything, & I really feel that he was very rude. If the bank could give me the torn bill, why should he feel that he is someone special. If this is the kind of treatment that I am going to get there, they have just lost a customer.

    Wow, you wasted time posting this over a torn $1 bill? Do you know what kind of ### the attendants go through when dealing with the public- especially during an oil crisis? The reason your bill was rejected was because the safe that they use will not accept a torn bill, or half a bill, or a bill taped together. I'm guessing you're one of those people that don't tip the attendants either. Try spending the day dealing with drive-offs, rude customers demanding priority service, geriatric and condescending folks, and the drug dealers laundering money buy buying $5 dollars worth of gas with a $100 bill. Not to mention the fact that the attendants are carrying cash, trying to drop large bills into the safe, and praying that someone doesn't cheat them out of money resulting in termination from a job that doesn't even pay the bills? If you really want to stick it to them, call OSHA.

    the sign at swifty tells the self serv price it is written directly under the price on the sign and there are signs on the pole if you would just look and read instead of being rude like uneducated human trash these signs tell you that it is 10cents more per gallon unless you pay cash and you save 3cents per gallon so that it is only 7 cents per gallon more if you have them pump it for you so pay attention and you wont seem like a total [censor] to the rest of the world you understand jane dont be a b

    Two cars pulled in after me and he waited on them first. told me i needed

    to practice patience, handed me my card back and told me to go somewhere

    else. i left and spent $40.00 at Mapco. I have used Swifty for years

    here in Old Hickory, Tenn. for years. i pay more to have my gas pumped

    since i am elderly. i have always been treated well, until today. i have

    never seen the attendent that was working this afternoon before. He also

    was talking with a lady customer and ignored the fact that i had even pulled in.

    Wow, there are still gas stations with "attendants" I've not seen anything but self serve for the last decade and a half. I doubt my children have ever seen a gas station where someone comes and pumps gas for customers.

    Swifty Gas Station - Rude customer service
    Swifty Gas Station

    Have been a customer for several years. Some time ago an employee told me that since I had a handacpt sticker they would pump my gas at self pump price. When there week of 3/19/11. Sat at the pump for quite some time while he served cars that came after me. Finally walked up to can and said "Do you want me to pump your gas?" I pointed to sticker and he said that only gets you a parking place not your gas pumped. You have lost a loyal customer and I will tell everyone I know not to go there

    I will never purchase gas from swifty again. I stop at the one in Washington Court House at least twice a week to fill up I drive a ford f150 so that's alot of gas. I always call and check there prices before I head out cause I pass 5 different stations before I get to their station. The attendant told me this morning that he couldn't tell me that info over the phone. Said something about the feds making it that way cause of price fixing..pssttt ### I'm a paying customer trying to save a few pennies, pennies I might mention again will not ever go to a Swifty gas station.

    Just because you got it form your bank, does not mean someone from his bank would accept it. You need to think of others and their concerns.
