I went to fill at Morrisons on the Isle of Wight, they allowed me to, but wouldn't let me pay until my helmet was off, so I asked why, and was told, in a fashion, it was policy and the pumps said to. If i'd seen it i'd have bought at Sainsburys round the corner. When I went back to the pump, I did find the tiny sticker with about ten tiny text rules, and it said to remove helmet prior to fuelling, so in future, I will quote that, and if they didn't ask me to before, I won't after. A visor up is all that is required for manners.
Shell used to do this, but stopped in general, probably because they realised the loss of revenue and level of complaint.
Morrisons are supposed to be a switched on company, and we should boycott them to make them realise the revenue loss. i am perfectly happy to detail the receipt value of all my shopping, and that of my family that support the cause, plus all the collective fuel receipt values, to show them what the policy costs them.
We have eight cars and four bikes at home, so well done Morrisons, as your shit attitude to your customers, that in my case are car drivers too, you will lose close to £18,000 per year in lost food & fuel sales. To your competitors. This is from one address. Idiots!
We should all go on the first of the month at first, and take ages to fill, and if stopped with helmets on, remove the nozzles and ride away and leave them on the floor. They will soon sympathise with inconvenience.
You people suggesting we should just comply, are probably retired or fairweather riders, most real bikers fuel often, and on long runs haven't time to repeat the same helmet off operation every 100 miles.
All they are doing this for is because they are scared of theft. They are discriminating against bikers, and wouldn't dare suggest any other item of clothing gets removed for fear of youth reprisal, or racist attitude.
They are inconsistent, and inconsiderate. If they can't prevent theft by investing in information capture systems the others use, they shouldn't be allowed to sell fuel, period.
Women in Burkhas may not be able to drive, but they could still steal..... so that was a dumb comment.
The U.K. is full of conformist pussies, we are a weak nation, unable to effectively defend any cause whatsoever, usually because er...... we're not allowed to!
This, and related crap needs making more public
