It's weird how MSNBC copies a newspapers story, rewrites it (poorly), and doesn't even link to the original story.
I original article (Driver fills tank in Richland, drains bank - Mid-Columbia News | Tri-City Herald : Mid-Columbia news) has a much less politically correct quote:
"Somebody from a foreign country who spoke in broken English argued with me for 10 to 15 minutes," Zamora said. " 'Did you get the gas?' he asked. Like I had to prove that I didn't pump $81,400,836,908 in gas!"
