Conversation at the Gas Pump

While fueling my truck at Costco, I heard the gas pump, in a male voice, ask, “Hello, how are you?”

Startled, I answered “I’m doing good.”

Costco recently replaced all the pumps, so I figured it to be something new that came with the reconstruction. That’s when the pump inquired, “What are you up to?”

I responded, “Uhh…getting gas.”

Sounding slightly irritated the voice stated, “I need to call you back,” adding, “There’s a guy on the other side of this pump who keeps answering me.”

Simultaneously peeking around the pump at one another, we both had a really good laugh.
