Would you be pissed if you went to a full serve gas station and the cashier was outside smoking, the gas pumper was inside using the bathroom apprently and the cashier didn't pump your gas? Didn't even offer and used the excuse I'm the cashier, I don't pump gas or I don't know how.. Would you be piased off??

I'm the cashier and I was smoking away from the pumps by the doors sort of but away from them but I could see the pumps and people could see me

Our station is. 2 cents cheaper than all other places!!!

Cashiers aren't allowed to do gas and jockeys aren't allowed to touch the till/cash except to hand it to cashier... We do not get breaks we have to pee , smoke or eat in between customers or when it's dead which is rare!!

 Um, no...because you pump your own gas here.  They do nothing but take the money from customers (or you pay at the pump)

We don't have full serve, so I always pump my gas.  It's not that hard.  If you don't like it, you don't have to stay.  You can go to another gas station.

This. I would think its more weird if someone tried to pump my gas.
And how do you not know how to pump gas? Have you never traveled outside of your state? I thought that was a basic skill everyone knew.

Quoting TranquilMind:

If I was at a full service one yes. Because that's their job. And normally the gas prices are a wee bit higher at them. Also depending on the state it's illegal to pump your own gas. ( like NJ for one)

But we don't have any around here and I rarely travel to NJ so I don't worry about it.
