Default I HATE SHELL GAS !!!!

Well.. after gettin some gas with Shell my gas gauge has been bouncing all over the place 3 weeks ago .. Well as if not bad enough, went to another Shell gas station today with my dad, and to my amazement the full auto stop on their pump failed !!! Well over 4 litres of gas spewed out and all over the ground !!!

I went into the station and asked them to look @ the pump cause the safety failed. I didnt even ask for the gallon of gas price off.. they had 2 people sitting there pickin their nose and just said its the first time. I asked them wat they going to do about the pump? Expecting at least a we'll look into it.. but no.. I get a "Do you want windshield water fluid?" I asked them what they going to do about the spilled fuel? Cat litter or let it run into the sewers cause it'* starting to rain. I get a "Do you have airmiles card?"

I was so pissed.. I told them.. Buddy.. if you're not going to do your job or hate your job or think you're under paid, I'm sure there will be a bunch of high school kids and other people who will DO a good job. I get a stare from hell as if I just told them to "GET BACK ON THE BOAT!!"

I was so pissed.. I got into my car besides my dad'* van.. and my dad knew what I was wanting to do ( light a smoke and as soon as he pulls out.. chuck it there cause if they don't care about safety. I WILL MAKE THEM CARE !!! But the old man knew me too well and said don't theres other way.

I never thought about banning gas brands before cause they pretty much get their gas from the same refinery.. BUT I WILL NEVER GET GAS FROM SHELL, and hope there will others that will follow..

There... thats my venting.. ooh.. so pissed.. ready to load up a couple of rounds in their a make a special cocktail and do a drive by.. I feel like their freakin foreign a$$ My day is well expressed like this--->

that'* actually the only place I get gas from. It'* the only gas station around here that the credit card machines actually work AT the freaking pump! all the other stations require you to go inside, whip out the ID, sign papers, etc. The shell station in my town where I work makes it so much easier and faster. that'* why I get gas there.

Thinking about call head office but they probably just shrug it off

But I might go with a buddy later tonight with his surveillance Van and record to see if they've done it and if it has spilled on other people..
