Some people like to bitch about things but just do that. When they see something inappropriate or are treated in a way that unkind/unfair, they will passively aggressively snarl about it but they don’t DO anything in changing the situation. It’s easier to moan that to say “Hell no!” Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been guilty of this action myself at times but there are times when enough is enough.
That’s why I dig Christian Grantham. A Murfreesboro BP station did some things that he felt was unsavory and he did something about it. And the BP station got a visit from the Tennessee Dept. of Agriculture’s Weights and Measures.
When I took pictures of the signs on the pumps you see above, I did it only because I thought it was ironic that BP’s gas pumps would not automatically shut off just as BP continues to spill close to a million gallons of oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico.
Things changed when that employee began taking pictures of my license plate. I don’t care what his intentions were with photographing my license plate, but if the TBI confirms anyone ran my plates, there will be a few more people to add to the unemployment line.
Good for Grantham for taking up for himself and calling attention to the fact that taking a photograph is not a crime. This particular BP station was playing the role of a bully. And CG didn’t let them get away with it.
