Woman, 31, Accuses Petrol Stations Of Being ‘Bias’ For Their Male Designed Handles That Hurt Her Small Hands

Do you have a problem using a petrol pump nozzle?


A mother is accusing petrol stations of being bias because their designed male pump handles hurt her small hands.

Getting her partner to fill up their van always, the mother identified as Melanie Morgan shared photos of herself struggling to grasp a petrol pump to prove her point to partner Jared Griffiths.

Morgan, 31, a private tutor from South West London accused garages of daily discrimination on social media while sharing her experience in filling up her van. She believes the pump handles were specifically designed with men in mind.

Becoming quite an issue for the mother-of-two, Melanie plans on getting an electric car in the nearest future to avoid filling up at the pump.



‘I have fairly small hands. I am short, only 5ft. I am fairly small generally and I imagine there are not many men in the world who have the same size of hands as me. When I was younger I recall thinking ooh, this is difficult but then it was something I anticipated doing.’

‘As an adult who does it regularly, it instantly occurred to me that I don’t think most people find filling up their car painful, most individuals don’t have to think this doesn’t work. I would assume there’s some kind of reason that it needs to be broad. No one is going to complain and those who designed things like this are mostly male engineers.’

‘My partner filled the van and started doing it since October, so I don’t get to deal with it.’ Morgan explained.

Morgan reveals she’s quite unsure if the discomfort whole filling up petrol tanks is a widespread issue

Revealing she’s, however, quite unsure if the discomfort while filling up petrol tanks is a widespread issue, Morgan claim she’s looking forward to purchasing an electric vehicle to avoid the problem.



 ‘In the next 5 to 10years, I am thinking of getting an electric car. Once I get one, it won’t be a problem for me anymore. We live in London, so it best we reduce emissions.’ Morgan added.
