About two weeks ago, I went to a Wawa gas station with three friends. I was driving and I pulled up. Here in NJ attendants pump the gas for you. So, the attendant came up to me and I told him to give me 20$ worth and that I will pay with cash. I also told him that I needed a receipt. The odd thing is he wanted my money right away, but he seemed new so I gave it to him. He set the pump up and left for no less than ten minutes. He comes back and gives me the receipt. I say thank you and turn the car on right in front of him. He doesn't say anything and just walks away. I start to drive away and the pump hose was still in and broke off. Store manager came out, didn't even want to hear what happened and took all my information. I always go to the same gas station and the guy was new. I also always ask for a receipt and they always give it to me after everything is over and done with as with any other store any of us have been too. Now today, I got a letter from Wawa stating that I owe them 1000$ for the pump repairs. Should I be responsible for the bill even though I received the reciept and the attendant, as I see it anyways, was negligent? I tried calling the number on the bill 3 times and no one is answering me. What should I do? EDIT: The case was dropped against me after the Wawa's risk management department found the attended to be a fault.
