I stopped at QT after work for fuel. I don't like to go over 300 miles on a tank, and I was at 340. I put in my Pump Start card (it's a card that you use at QT so you don't have to prepay.) The pump said, "See attendant." OK. I go inside and he swipes the card and says, "This card has been deactivated." Weird. I paid with a different method and pumped my gas.
They had given me the printout of the deactivation message, and there was an 800 number on it, so I called. The lady asked if I remembered getting $24 worth of fuel at QT last Thursday. I said, "Yeah. Was it the Oak Grove location?" It was. Oh NO! I got other stuff that day! What if I forgot to tell them about the fuel, paid for the other stuff, and drove away? I'm a delinquent!
I called Kevin and asked him to check the bank account online. He found where I had written a check to QT that day for an amount that sounds like plenty to have paid for $24 worth of gas. Cool. I stopped by the bank and asked for a printout, and then went to the Oak Grove QT. I explained the situation and he started looking into it.
After a few questions were asked, he was able to pull up the transaction and get a copy of the itemized receipt. I didn't remember that last Thursday was the day that I bought breakfast, lunch, snacks for my snack stash at work, and a few other things. What wasn't on that receipt? The FUEL! How embarrassing! I told him that I felt like such a rebel.
He said, "A rebel doesn't usually come back to pay for their gas." LOL I paid for it and he said that my pump start card will be reactivated by 2:00 tomorrow afternoon. What an airhead! I'm just glad that I didn't go in there with attitude and accuse them of doing something wrong. Thanks to my buddy Brooke for warning me, "May want to check the attitude" when I was complaining to her about it, on the way to take care of it.
