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.
