Sometimes I wonder how unlucky I can be.
Went to the petrol station to top up fuel after work yesterday. After paying for the petrol, I went back to the car, only to discover that I couldn’t start the engine. It seems like something is wrong with the battery.
Well, you might think that it can’t be that bad since I’m in a petrol station. You are wrong. The workshop at the petrol station is closed for the day. So I tried some DIY. After several unsuccessful attempts to start the engine, I decide to open the bonnet to check out what’s wrong. But well I know nuts about repairing cars. All I can do is open the bonnet and look inside.
All this while, not a single petrol station staff came forward to help. Neither did they even come over to see what is going on. By opening the bonnet, it is obvious that something is wrong with my car. So my car is parked infront of the petrol pump, blocking others to use that pump. They don’t seem to bother anyway.
Pretty pissed off with the service at that petrol station. I’m your customer. My car broke down just after pumping petrol. The least you can do is come check what happen and see if your store has anything that can help.
Nobody came forward.
I called our car workshop and they said they need 45 minutes to reach my location. So I waited…. outside the petrol station. The guy lost his way and took 1 hour to reach. The repair was simple. Just change the battery and the car is back in order. But I still need to send the car to workshop again to check if everything is alright. Am busy lately. Will have to wait till the weekends.
It was late already and I haven’t had my dinner. I could had gone into the store in the petrol station to buy some bread or something. But I simply refuse to let them have my business. Sorry, but you lost a customer.
I will never go to the Shell Petrol Station along AMK Ave 8 again.
As I was waiting for the repair car to come, I was wondering… Why can’t we use the handphone in the petrol station. Is there really a danger?
I remember a joke that says that whenever a car breaks down, the guy will always open the bonnet and look inside. Even though he doesn’t know anything about car repair and don’t know what is he looking for.
Don’t believe? Next time a guy open the bonnet when the car breaks down, try asking him what is he looking for. Most of the time, he would tell you that he has no idea.
Then why still open the bonnet? hahaha…
