I would like to make a suggestion.

Lynsay was gracious enough to jump into the fire on this forum so instead of making this a b***h session why don't we use it to learn how the new Flying J/ Pilot organization is willing to work with us RVers. As I see it, Flying J/Pilot has a huge undertaking in training their employees and I believe they know that so our bashing their employees serves no purpose. Now if they can get me trained to register my orange card and only swipe it at the truck island before fueling to obtain the cash price plus the discount, I'll be in business.

I'm sincerely concerned that if all Lynsay hears is the same ole bi**hing she'll pack up and go back to the FMCA forum where she was trying her best to help the handful that frequent that forum.

Just my opinion of course.

No, I never listened to RECORDINGS of the idiot who was upset because he got mustard on his hamburger at McD's... However I have ANSWERED a few (dozen) of those calls... (No need to listen, the voice saying "That is not a police matter" was mine after all)

However the trucker yelling at you.. On that one I'd have dispatched.

By the way, How to decide if you need 9-1-1

There are, under the vehicle code in many states, only certain types of vehicle that are allowed to use osculating, flashing or rotating lights.

Police Cars, Ambulance, Fire truck, Tow Truck, snow removal while towing and a special case is Highway department with AMBER lights.

The ones allowed to use other than amber are called Emergency Vehicles. If you need one of them.. Then 9-1-1 is the number to call.

Lynsay
It does't all way work that way. In Brigham City, I filled at pump #17 swiped my card got pump start, filled tank went inside to pay and was told I used pump # 17,it is a truck pump no discount. If I had used pump 13 or 14 I would have got the discount. No signs at pump islands. I left the card in the trash.

Please refer to "your" post number 72. "Thread drift?"

Lynsay is going to come in Monday morning and see I don't know how many pages of posts. Do you think she is going to care how 911 answers a call? When she gets to stuff thats totally irrelevant she's through...at least I would be.

Again, just my opinion.
