“The computer says I owe you $6.00.”

Heading back home after spending some time back east with my Mom. Hanging out in hotel and thought I’d share a funny story from the trip. I sure hope this isn’t a true representation of our youth these days.

I pull up to get gas at a station in my hometown that I’ve been to many times and put my cc in the slot but after removing it, it didn’t ask for my zip code which it normally does, but the pump seemed ready to go and I started pumping. After I filled up, the receipt didn’t print so I went inside and asked for one. When I told her the number pump she said that she owed me $6 because I didn’t use all I paid for. I explained that I didn’t prepay and used my cc, and the guy behind me said it sounds the pump was already prepaid before I used it. As we both tried to explain to the girl what probably happened but she insisted as she pointed to the screen, “The computer says I owe you $6”. The more we tried explain it to her the more she kept saying, “The computer says I owe you $6”.

I finally gave in, took the money with my receipt, and said, “looks like I got a free tank of gas,plus $6”. And as I walked away 1 other guy along with the guy helping me try to explain to the girl what happened, were standing there laughing and one of them giving me a thumbs up lol. My wife said our cc never got charged so I did get a free tank of gas.

A couple days later, my Mom and I were getting my stepdad discharged from hospital and we waited over 2 hours for someone to bring a wheelchair for him. Finally, after asking everyone around when one would be here, a nurse(another young girl) walked up to us and said,”The computer says the wheelchair will be here in 2 minutes”. My Mom, already knowing my gas story, looked at me and we both busted out laughing. We had to explain to the nurse why we were laughing and needless to say the wheelchair showed up about 10 minutes later.
