What a totally selfish female person!

The scene:
Aegerital Garage in Unterageri. I'd just ridden into the left lane to fill up the motorbike. I parked nice and close to pump to make it easy. Went in, paid for it, everything normal so far.

Came out, and behold the scene. A woman in a fiesta has parked *parallel* to me. She's so close, I can't even mount the bike from the left. I can't get in via the right due to the pump. And to top it all, she's got the pump literally draped over my bike, and she's filling her car.

I use hand signals to communicate "WTF are you doing? Can I get onto my bike please???"

To which she responds - also in body English - "Please wait until I fill up". And not just that...when shes finished, she barges past me to reseat the pump, then incredulously, she actually makes me wait until she's gone in and paid! Then makes me wait yet further - totally blanking me in the process - while she gets in and drives off! No apology...no acknowledgement....

I mean...WTF???? Is this normal???

Re: What a total bitch!

Not normal. Just a really spiteful woman wielding her little bit of temporary power over another person.
I can only hope it gave her some satisfaction in her sad little world, and I'm sure you forgot it as soon as you vrooooomed off.

Re: What a total bitch!

She probably had it in for anyone on a bike.

Maybe an old boyfriend loved his bike more than her so it was revenge!!

Not normal just sad..

Re: What a total bitch!

Cor .... if only I got such strong buying signals from the opposite sex.

Did you not spot she was playing hard to get?

Obviously she fancied a bit of rough, leather clad biker, stinking of oil.

Re: What a total bitch!

I'll be honest - I was just so stunned at it all, I couldn't think of a cunning revenge to do to her motor!

Re: What a total bitch!

There are two possibilities - either she has a total hate for anybody on bikes.... or maybe she just fancied you??

Re: What a total bitch!

blocking the bike was not nice.. but on the other hand, after filling up, if she just went into the car without paying first the SWAT teams might be all over her; maybe she was applying the strict procedure: park, fill, pay, leave :P

You should have peed into her car's petrol tank whilst she was paying.

Re: What a total bitch!

I would have pulled the hose from her car, and told her to move or I'd dump it on the ground and light it!

OK, realistically, shut off the pump and threaten to call the cops. What she did is illegal, and she has no defense!

Re: What a total bitch!

Did you call her a total bitch to her face? I would have. I have no time for people like that, and certainly no respect. They need to know that they're ignorant wastes of space, so I think it was your duty to tell her.

You were in Unterägeri. Home to the bored, rich women of expat working managers in Zug. You should have asked her out.

Re: What a total bitch!

Seems like a bad day, powertrip kinda thing. Though, the other day, I had to make somebody wait until I paid.... I didn't want to get back in the car to move slightly incase the garage thought I was going to do a runner... so I ran to the shop and back top speed!

Anyway, forget about it and move on!

Did you get her plate? Can be subsequently checked in eautoindex if she didn't take it out

Seems totally abnormal behaviour to me.

I would have sat on her bonnet/hood while I waited.
