The last time I was in for a air fill. I had 6 full sized tanks and two pony tanks. I still had more than two weeks before the 1st of the month. The tanks did not require a VIP at that time.
Normally I drop off my tanks in the morning and pick them up in the evening. Luckily I hung around and did some shopping. When I noticed the guy bleeding off the tanks. I asked him what he was doing. He just took it for granted that I wanted VIP's on all 8 tanks. I am not a tight bastard, but I had some problems with this.
1. I did not request VIP's.
2. The dive shop employee did not inform me. That I was going to be charged for 8 VIP's.
3. Due to my work schedule, that I was going on my last dive of the season. I knew I was not going to be able to dive for at least 6 months. I would have preferred to get fresh VIP's at the beginning of my next dive season.
4. Yeah, I could have afforded the VIP's, but that was part of the money I was shopping with. So instead of buying a piece of equipment from the dive shop. That was filling my tanks. I went to the dive shop down the road.
5. Customers are people and do not like to be taken for granted.
