Breaking News: Hess Gas in West Roxbury

You know how when you pay by credit at the Hess gas station in West Roxbury it seems like it takes a year for them to authorize your credit card at the pump.

That's because it requires human intervention for credit card approval.

So I was waiting a year and a half for authorization this morning and finally a voice comes through the pump.

Pump Voice: There's a problem with credit card payments, you'll have to come inside to pay by credit.

I went inside and gave the pump voice lady a $20.

  1. It's not just that location. I visit a Hess on the cape and their credit cards are constantly down/not working. Except there is no pump voice to tell you that. I just cancel the transaction and drive down the street where the credit cards do work.

    Cash? Who uses that anymore? It's so 2002!
