Press where for Debit?

Helpful or, insulting?

Just in case you're not clear on what to do here.

I saw this at a local gas station the other day. As I stood there pumping my gas I started thinking, How oblivious or inattentive have we become that we need such blatantly obvious signs pointing to things? I'm far from the smartest person but come on, really?

Unless you've been living in a cave for the last decade or two you should know how certain things work. I have been pumping my own gas out here for over six years now. I get this. You follow the prompts on the screen that is attached to the pump site. Then you slip your credit/debit card into the slot marked as such or you go pay inside. It's not that complicated. If you can't handle these simple instructions, maybe you shouldn't be driving a car?

I could have been a total creep and peeled the sticker off and placed it somewhere else just to mess with people. But, I thought better of it and decided to be nice and leave the Captain Obvious sticker for those clueless debit-paying folks.


  1. So... you push right underneath the bottom button? Someone help me! Nothing is happening!

    1. Haha! This is like "press any key" all over again.
