I visited Islamabad on Monday for a few hours. To spend my time, I hired a taxi to visit Saidpur village. On the way back, the taxi driver said that he is out of gas and needed to refuel and so we stopped at the PSO pump near Melody market. While he was filling, I saw a banner (see attached image). At that instance I knew that no one will wipe his windscreen because he is a taxi driver and cannot read English. I waited for the taxi to be refilled and when we were leaving the gas station, I translated that English banner to the taxi driver. He was hesitant to claim his free drink so I went to the cashier and asked about my drink but he forwarded me towards group of gas station employees who were enjoying the winter sun. When I asked them about my drink they start making fun that who are you etc. When I inquired about the whereabouts of the manager they said that he is on holiday due to Muharram. In the end I left them without having my free drink because I was running out of time. The station should not put such marketing stunt if they can’t fulfill them.
