Just to give you all a laugh I filled up the Boat near Chichester and got a telling off from the Cashier as apparently my feet have to stay on the ground while fueling (I have to climb inside as I cannot reach the filler).

She was very very serious although I tried to make a joke out of her comments.

Anyone else heard that one.

Yes, the Esso station in Park Gate say the same, I can just about manage it with the current boat but the new project is six fee off of the ground???

If this is correct what about when we fill up on the water !.

She said that I was not earthed and there could be a spark.

I don't know but it all sounds a bit weird. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can confirm either way.

You're not earthed if you're not wearing anti static footwear anyway.

It's the usual crap from fuel attendants that only understand 1/4 of what they're told. (I have an ADR licence and drive tankers....)

If it was at the Fontwell Texaco I have had same lecture. Had to stand on tiptoes to fill the old Humber up. She is one miserable cow.

Or put yer kid in and hold their hand while they fill up.

OMG - thats like even worse... coz a kid under 16 isn't allowed to operate the pump on this side of the puddle at least...

I tend to find I'm not earthed lots - (or maybe I am and thats the issue) - anyway I get a lot of static shocks. Next time I'm in a forecourt I'm gonna tell them I want them to fill me up because I'm all charged up and see what happens!!
