There was a customer that used a coupon from Kmart to get 20 cents off per gallon and I added the discount to their payment for gas at the register but the price didn't change at the pump. I told the customer I added the 20 cents off for your gas but their isn't anything I can do with what shows up outside at the pump. I don't control what happens on the pumps.

If the person continues to be difficult, it would normally be best to leave them be. However, in a work environment such as this one, I would direct the person to a manager.

You may think that your idea is without a doubt the solution to a problem, but taking other opinions in to consideration is very important. If you shut yourself off to other ideas, there's no room for discussion.

But, once I break through the wall of initiating the task, it becomes easy for me to get the job done.
