Additional comments::

I was concerned after the merger between Pilot and Flying J that the pumps at the latter wouldn't put points on my card from the former. I put on 148 gallons of fuel. Not only did the pump give me the points but it also gave me 150 extra points for a total of 298 points.

Sign posted at the Flying J fuel island in St. Augustine, FL. I was very surprised to see this sign posted at the Flying J fuel island in St. Augustine, FL.

I wonder:

  • How many incidents of drivers slipping on "slick spots on fuel islands" has Flying J had?
  • How is a driver supposed to know if there is a slick spot until he has gotten out of his truck?
  • Why doesn't management just make sure the bays are clean?
  • Why was this sign affixed on the passenger side post?
