We were called about a gas drive-off about 4 years ago, by the police, even though we used a credit card.  The cashier would not apologize for unnecessarily getting our name in the police log, and neither would the manager. We have never gone back to that station. Used to fill up there once every week or so. The machine was defective in the extreme cold. Even so, not even a "we're sorry."
