I've heard people before say "I want 20 bucks on pump 3" and similar. But this guy tells the clerk "I want $170 on pump 10". WTF!? What the heck was he driving? An aircraft carrier? I had to look. Turns out it was just a regular Ram pickup pulling a small landscaping trailer. I guess that's what a fill-up with diesel at nearly 6 dollars a gallon costs. Crazy times.

Clancy has run into this many times. Most guys just put the $100 in and go on. I guess if the guy inside puts in on the pump you can get more?
