On a hot summer day in Phoenix (temperature over 100 F), I stopped to buy self-service gasoline. I had not intended to go inside the store, but the gas pump would not print a receipt, so I had to go inside. As soon as I get to the door, a female behind the counter tells me I cannot come inside. I tell her I need a receipt. Acting as if it were a big chore, she deigns to give me. I mention I would like to buy some merchandise, but she refuses to permit it. She tells me, in a nasty voice, that if I need someone else to tell me I cannot come in, she can arrange it. Well, of course, I left the store.
I have checked with the health department, and there is no statute or regulation that requires a male customer to wear a shirt inside a business establishment.
I called the manager. She was a loud-mouthed female too. She tells me I am not welcome in the store without a shirt. I tell her that is okay, because there are plenty of convenience stores in Phoenix/Scottsdale where it is not a problem, and they are happy to do business with me. Many of those places charge less for gasoline too.
If these lazy, rude, obnoxious affirmative action females had been doing their jobs (i.e. making sure that the gas pump had paper in it so that it could print a receipt), this would not have happened, but I guess work that like that would ruin the finish on their nail polish.
Do not shop here. There are plenty of friendly places.
