Yellow Gas Stations and Blue Loyalty

Okay, just a couple of observations about the "Yellow" and the "Blue" gas stations.
The "Blue" first: Like I've said before, we (shoppers) have been given the instructions not to use our loyalty cards for indoor purchases when performing the shop. however, we must note if we are asked. I gracefully (I think I do anyway) decline their offer with some sort of reason. I always, always note if I was asked, even if it was at the end of the purchase, middle or beginning of the transaction. whatever, it is duly noted - I give the employee the benefit of the doubt - I know it can be difficult. From what I understand, some shoppers are being overly stringent. I won't say more, but you know why I said it.
The "Yellow" gas stations: Diligently, I check each and every pump for the "TT" decal and the little plastic square box. Not a big deal. But why, if they are not present, do you need a photo of each one? I know its not necessary if other infractions are noted. But, most often, there are not other infractions. again, not a big deal to take the additional photo (thank goodness you no longer want a photo selfie with the guidebook!!).
Plus, those little "TT" decals are minute and not in any particular, designated area. Why not a bigger one (like the "Blue" shops)? Why not a decal on the door of the shop?
Okay, its Saturday morning, I have to pull weeds and pick up dog poop.

Oops! almost forgot. A scary story: Yesterday I was at a "Blue" gas station (wearing a yellow safety vest). A woman pulls up to a pump (she's driving a red car), stops and puts it into park. I look over, she's talking on her phone. I walk behind her car (about 2 meters) and suddenly realize she has put it into reverse. I jumped like a rabbit out of the way. I look into the car, she's still on her phone, not even looking in her mirror or turned around to look behind her.
I just glared at her and moved on. My lesson learned: give a wider berth to vehicles and be more observant.

Glad you're ok, FF. I have had the exact same experience, and the driver, when he did look up, had the nerve to honk at ME for being where he was trying to drive! Times have definitely changed.
On the yellow stations. On my first one I took pictures of all the missing TT decals, and added them as infraction photos for each pump. One the next one several days later, I noticed the input form stated I didn't need to upload the photo for each pump, but instead should upload the photo for the overall question about TT decals further down. I took this to mean I needed only one photo of a missing decal. I didn't notice that the first time; maybe I missed it or they added it. I still got the validation error for a missing infraction photo, but I just ignored it.

On the blue stations, i agree. If the employee mentions a loyalty program at any time before the reveal, I give them credit.

Gotta watch out for those red cars!
Taking pump pictures, this pickup truck comes flying into the lot, blaring on the horn and heading straight for me. As I start running for cover the driver screams out of his window, "Get out of my f*****g way or I'll run your a$$ over!" Nice.

I've noticed the editors for the yellow stations mark the square box off as not present, even when all my photos show they are. Can only see that with a hold, but thought it was strange. My habit now is to take one overall picture of the pump, then one up close for the TT or box.

I'm wondering if the more logical method is to just use a photo editor on these.
