Assuming there are cameras in your store, what do you consciously have to tell yourself to do (or not do) because of them?

Bam_sexchange11 karma

Good question vape, pick nose, scratch arse, make sure arse crack ain't hanging out while sitting down, and get caught making the odd free cuppa.

holycowwhat3 karma

Walk straight - I'm guessing you mean when they are no longer drunk? Do customers every drive dangerously through the station? Are you ever you scared you might get hit?

Bam_sexchange3 karma

I have had one drink drive hit a pump next to me on my first week at work thank god it's not like the movies =D

Bam_sexchange9 karma

I used to hate the night shift, but really started to like it after a few years. What's your favorite part of the job?

Bam_sexchange9 karma

Been able to go my own pace =) but the best and most sadistic one would be sending all you fuckers to work with a full tank in the winter snow knowing I can wrap myself up and die lol

How do you feel about Shell's actions towards the environment? Do you worry that your company could be causing irreparable harm that could destroy the livelihood of millions?

Bam_sexchange17 karma

If I'm being honest my punctuation grammar and the fact I'm working where I am should answer the question in my eyes a jobs a job, I just wish other company's would give people a chance I know I'm not the brightest and dint have grades but if given a chance I would love to train myself to do anything but it's all about grades and who you know.

DarkSideOfTheNuum2 karma

From your answers it sounds like you are from the north-east of England.

Since no one in that part of the world seems to own a coat, do you not feel the cold or is it just a macho thing?

Bam_sexchange8 karma

I'll pop back to answers this, this was started due to girls going out clubbing in barley nowt people do wear coats=) just the lady's like to advertise themselves while drinking =)

darkmaninperth2 karma

I did night shift at a Caltex servo in Perth, OZ. Imagine doing what your doing but in the middle of a red light district.

The stories I could tell....

But, how do you find nights?

Personally, I loved them. If I hadn't called the police a few times in a night, it was a quiet shift.

Bam_sexchange3 karma

I find them great I enjoy watching and learning stuff online and with two customers a hour on a weekday it's a great time to better myself and man I feel for you, it's the customers that make the job hard most of the time

darkmaninperth2 karma

What are the demographics of your customers?

Mine were mainly drunks (the worst, too unpredictable), stoners (they were the best, just bought food and left), backpackers, pimps and prostitutes.

Bam_sexchange4 karma

Ahh weekdays I will have the guys traveling down the country at about 3am trying to get to London for around 9am, in between them I have the taxis filling up for the morning rush 5am the average factory workers, after that it's a steady flow. Weekend is mainly drunks getting dropped off from taxis looking for alcohol after the clubs have closed, then that leads to the abuse people spitting at me hurling abuse as we only have a 5am-11pm alcohol licence=/

Ritaxa2 karma

At around midnight shell garages lock their doors and use the night window. I see you still let certain people such as taxi drivers, police and ambulance workers inside to browse at their leisure. How do I become part of this elite crowd without wearing a uniform?

Bam_sexchange1 karma

Good question, taxi drivers I don't let in its to easy to go get a white car stick a taxi thingy on top pretend to be one and Rob me, police I will let in of they arrive in a marked police car and some of the people that I have served for years are allowed in early.

Complete_Novice1 karma

multifunction10001 karma

What do you think when people only put 8 quids worth of fuel in and then proceed to do a mid-week shop for 20 mins?
