Letter: Selfish Behaviour At the Fuel Pump Annoys Me

In response to: Across the Borough a Similar Story – If There’s No Queue, There’s No Petrol

Whilst in the queue to try to get petrol for my car (needed for work, my low-fuel warning light was on so the visit was warranted) at the Shell garage by the fire station on Ladymead earlier today (September 28), I was irked to see the older gent in front of me proceed to put over £50s’ worth into his car, and then produce five jerrycans and fill them too.

Why isn’t there a cap initiated on how much non-work vehicles can have? I resisted the urge to fill the tank, instead only putting £25s’ worth in, but it does annoy me to see others being so selfish.

First, we had the loo rolls saga, now fuel. I’m afraid to ask what next?

    No one should let the behaviour of the selfish few control their own. By all means decry it, but please don’t let it affect our behaviour.

    Perhaps as comfort, there must be some people with an excess of loo rolls they will never be able to use, no matter how much excess they produce.
