Sexist idea of the week – Revenue Generators for Petrol Stations

I met Treasa for coffee on Saturday and as I walked home past the Shell petrol station nearish to my house an idea sprang to mind. The station always seems to get new management or owners every two or three years, possibly due to lack of business. While walking past, there was this very cute girl in an enhancing top pouring petrol into a car for a guy who I guess was her father. Anyway it got me thinking that the petrol station could actually increase business if they had girls like that working at all the pumps. Ramp up the petrol prices by 15 cents a litre or more and away you go. Pay the girls just above minimum wage but allow and encourage tipping. Hooters for the filling station industry. The thing is we all bitch and moan about prices, but it’s only a rare few who will actually drive to the cheapest station.

Oh and don’t get me started on the carwash idea…

Oh and yeah I’m sure there can be stations that appeal to heterosexual women and gay men.

  1. Ask the petrol attendants to double as spray-happy lather specialists in the self-serve car wash and you’ll attract the local boy racers to your forecourt.

    Damien – I’m seriously worried about your sexual orientation. Are you in danger of going straight?

    Bernie: I was also thinking a Calendar every Christmas would be a big seller too.

    Tom: LOL. No, I’m thinking of the easiest route to make money from one of the largest markets – Oversexed males.

  4. Dude, awesome idea!

    I’d be burning up petrol, going on unecessary road-trips, just so I could go fillup again 🙂

    There’s no such thing as an oversexed male.
