The Trickle - REJECTED

August 3, 2012 - Brian Ferry
Sometimes I get bored while doing mundane tasks. For example, when I'm filling my car with gas (I haven't really figured out a way to get where I need to go when I need to go there for work related events without using gas in my car (I could ride my bike to Sheffield, but it'd take a while), so I keep putting gas in it), I read the various things on the pump. A few weeks ago, I was out of town and had to fuel up. The presence of a red sticker caught my attention after I had begun the fueling process. Just in case, I stopped while I read it. The Rejection sticker placed by some agent of Weights and Measures didn't say what the problem was. I made sure. I wanted to know if I was going to get less gas than I paid for. Since it wasn't specific, I figured I had about equal chances of getting more or less than I paid for. The third option was some other problem that I didn't care about. I doubt they would have simply put a couple square inch sticker on a pump that was likely to explode. So, I started back up and filled the tank. I'd never seen a reject sticker on a gas pump. I've seen, and read, stickers on plenty of pumps that passed.
