Open Letter

Dear Sheetz Executives,

Whose idea was it to greet your patrons who are pumping gas into their car in the following manner?

"Hello, Pump #2, welcome to Sheetz. You're authorized for payment inside after you finish fueling your dark blue SUV."

As if this wasn't bad enough, NOW you give a description of what the pump operator is wearing.

"Hello, Pump #2, welcome to Sheetz. You're authorized for payment inside after you finish fueling your dark blue SUV for the gentleman in the orange shirt and lime green bowler hat."

Sure, it is supposed to make me feel welcome as well as letting me know that you ARE paying attention to exactly who is at the pump.

But honestly? It makes your poor employees sound like stalkers.

Sincerely,
Your Creeped-Out Customer in her pajamas-at pump #3-with the crazy hair.
