    California free air and water - I was abused

    Ok, so I get out of dinner with my girl and notice the passenger side rear tire is dangerously low.

    So, I pull into a gas station and park next to the air/water box.

    They want me to deposit 4 quarters to get air. I don't have 4 quarters on me.

    So, I go up to the guy at the desk inside and ask for him to please turn on the water/air. He refuses saying I must purchase fuel. So, I go take a look at the sign and sure enough, air/water is free if you purchase fuel.

    So, I go back inside and give him a penny on #7 and ask him to turn on the air/water. He says I must buy a minimum of one gallon.

    Now hold on, the sign doesn't say anything about a minimum amount of fuel. So I tell him that and I call the toll free number for complaints that confirms it.

    He says he won't turn it on unless I buy a gallon so I tell him I will be filing a formal complaint and I ask for his name. He refuses to give me it.

    Now, my speculation is that he did not turn it on because he saw I was young pulling in with a Porsche. The man was of Latin descent as well and I consider this a case of reverse racism. I am willing to bet if I was from Mexico and pulled up and asked for air he would have turned the machine on. I am considering testing this by hiring a day laborer to go and do exactly that.

    Now, my girl thinks I'm insane but I consider this a matter of principle. I can't find the law that states I must purchase 1 gallon of gasoline before I get my air. I will be calling tomorrow to discuss this with the water/air officials.

    This is a matter of principle damn it, what if I had an accident due to the low air? They show their stupid gas price to the thousandth, you would think a penny would be valid in that case.

    I pulled the code and it doesnt disclose how much you have to buy which makes me think the penny should have worked... or maybe I didnt read it all:

    Vic, thanks so much! Nothing about a minimum requirement, just as you stated.

    I forgot all about it.
