Gas Prices and Economic Seduction–Dinner First Would Be Nice
I was told by a friend last night that I was the victim of a new form of “come on” line called “economic seduction” by a young lady at a Getty Gas station I stopped at to fill up last night. Let me explain.
I pulled up to the pump and got out of the car and the young lady at the gas station said, “you’re the last person that gets to pump at $3.53 a gallon. I’m raising the prices a dime when you’re done.”
Apparently according to my friend this was an attempt by her at “economic seduction”. I must have missed the update, so I didn’t realize that she was trying to get a Jake Thomas private fan club meeting.
I told my friend that if she was looking to get my motor running she should have offered me a free Jack Links Peppered Jerky.
Hey, is that a tire pressure guage in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
After realizing she saved me $1.50, I should have realized she was gunning for me. Nothing says love like a buck and a half!
I’ll have to stop again in 3 days to pump more gas, and see if she ups the ante next time. I’ll keep you all posted.
