No professional courtesy ? I woulda pulled one of the cops to the side and tinned them, waited for other people to clear out and get the gas discreet like.
Meh....everyone's head is on a swivel. People are parking at closed gas stations and sleeping in their cars. Def. would have put these guys in an awkward spot, as they are manning every open station as it is, along with the the NYS Troopers. No way I could have pulled in there and grabbed a hose without causing a huge scene and possibly a riot. Things are that desperate.
Went back to the same station this morning and there had to be 200 cars winding down the road.
Besides, I can count on one finger how many times I pulled a tin to get an advantage and I think that was to avoid getting patted down at a Yankee game. Not my thing.
