Alabama Gas Station Manager Says He Removes Five Or Six Biden ‘I Did That’ Stickers From Gas Pumps Each Day

Alabama Gas Station Manager Says He Removes Five Or Six Biden ‘I Did That’ Stickers From Gas Pumps Each Day

“As gas prices keep climbing, Cagle says the stickers are rising up with them.”

If you’ve been to a gas station lately, you may have seen the small stickers featuring Joe Biden, usually positioned so that he is pointing to the price with the caption, “I did that.”

The stickers are sold in packs of 100 online, and they’re turning up everywhere.

One gas station manager in Alabama was recently featured in a local news report about this and said that he removes five or six of the stickers from his pumps every day.

Apparently, stations can be fined by their corporations for vandalism if the stickers aren’t removed.

Nicole Zedeck reports at WAAY News in Alabama:

Satirical sticker at North Alabama gas pumps bringing problems for gas station owners

As gas prices surge, some people are voicing their concern with a satirical sticker at the pump.

That small sticker is causing big problems for local gas stations. It is a picture of President Biden pointing to the high dollar sign and saying ‘I did that’ underneath. While it may seem like a funny political message to some people, the gas stations could be fined for vandalism.

“I take off 5 or 6 a day from our different pumps,” says Perry Cagle. He’s the assistant manger of the Exxon off Highway 72 in Athens.

As gas prices keep climbing, Cagle says the stickers are rising up with them.

“I got one here, it’s the ‘I did that’ and then they put it by the pump and it’s supposed to be that Joe, President Biden, is causing the gas to go up,” he says.

The satirical joke is turning away some costumers.

“I have had one or two people come in here and complain about it,” says Cagle.

Not only that, but the stickers could cost his locally owned station a corporate fine.

“The point of the matter is it’s causing issues for us because we get points taken off if our corporate comes by and does inspections they do,” Cagle explains.

He says he is all for people voicing their political beliefs, just not at his workplace.

“Put it on your car, put it on your house. Don’t vandalize private property,” he says.

This short version of the video has been circulating on Twitter:

You can watch the full report below:

This has been going on for a while now, even in blue New England.

Joe Battenfeld reported at the Boston Herald back in November of 2021:

If you see Joe Biden’s picture on a gas pump these days, it’s not a tribute to his amazingly successful energy policy.

The stickers — with Biden pointing to the $3.50 a gallon gas price and saying “I did that!” — are part of a Republican guerrilla campaign to undermine the Democratic administration. They’ve gone viral online.

And it’s cheap and easy.

A 100-pack of the stickers is going for just six bucks on Amazon.

You might see the derisive stickers up in New Hampshire, the swing state Biden is set to visit on Tuesday to promote his $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that just passed Congress…

Biden’s approval rating in the Granite State is the same as it is nationally — abysmal. And the passage of the infrastructure bill won’t change that, no matter how much the Democrats and CNN celebrate it.

The gas pump stickers are similar tactics to what Democrats did to Republican presidents like Trump. Remember those “Not my President” bumper stickers? So in a way Republicans now are just returning the favor.

This is right up there with “Let’s Go Brandon.”

Pretty funny stuff.

Some idiot on another site commented the people should glue the stickers to the pumps using crazy glue or similar. I guess they don’t realize, that is the music is the stickers baby, it’s still vandalism if you do that.

    “… it’s still vandalism if you do that.”

    Yeah, if you do that. But if you put Black Lives Matter stickers on there, that would not be considered vandalism. Just the reverse, it would be vandalism to remove them.

    With you on that.. I was hoping they made the image in window clings.. that stuff without adhesive. I got in big trouble for expressing some dismay at Trump 2016 stickers on stop signs… Some poor person has to clean it up.. While I agree with the sentiment… not cool.

      It is defacing of private property in the case of the gas pumps, and someone has to clean it up. As noted elsewhere in the comments, there are standards that must be met and no one wants a corporate fine, or other marks against them that can affect the status of a franchise.

      Those of you who downticked me: I don’t mind the downticks. Just curious why I got them – aside from my speech to text not working work a hoot again.

sorry for the gas station managers and franchise owners. Those stickers are still accurate and I am glad to see them everywhere

What’s the problem? It’s the truth. Why not leave the stickers there?

Morning Sunshine | March 5, 2022 at 2:10 pm

also, sounds like the stickers are starting to get under the (thin) skin of the dems and their policies. Hence the news article NOW, not when the thing started.

Its victory lap for Dictator Dementia. You don’t think this is Joe’s idea, do you??
ruin the economy
Kill masculinity
Silence opposition
dumb down the population.
This is just a piece of a much large puzzle.

The Ds have crowed about shutting down the pipeline and energy prices going up, partly because of the delusion that higher gas prices will push more people into buying expensive, non-environmentally-friendly electric cars.

If they think those are such great accomplishments, they should own them and stand proudly behind them. Not that anybody actually believes them, but hey, Ds – you built that.

    Not that anybody can afford a new car with the dealers demanding MSRP + $2-10k and a goosed up financing rate.

“part of a Republican guerrilla campaign to undermine the Democratic administration”

Sounds pretty grass roots to me. But we all know that the left doesn’t like any form of peaceful protest. they only like mostly peaceful protest.

henrybowman | March 5, 2022 at 3:36 pm

Stickers are a “totally peaceful protest.”
The left can burn down a building, and it’s OK “because they have insurance.” And gang tags on urban structures and trains last for decades.
I feel like I’m trapped in the world of Bill Cosby’s “Toss of The Coin” routine: we must wear red, and march only in a straight line.
The ideal solution here would be for a right-wing online lobby to create a mass email campaign to the corporate drones, drilling them a new one for penalizing their franchisees for voluntary, peaceful free-speech activism by their loyal customers… which, after all, is in support of the continued viability of their industry.
Talk about short-sighted.

    If these stickers are replaced as quickly as they are removed at enough stations, the corporate policy of fining the station owners will change quickly. The beauty of this campaign is that the message goes viral once the media start complaining about it Just like “Let’s Go Brandon!” was so effective in stopping the “Fuck Joe Biden!” mania. Once you strike a chord with angry voters as this and FJB did, it’s like trying to put out a fire with gasoline.

    No need to feel bad for the gas stations owners. They will be fine.

      No one is firing station/affiliate owners that I’ve heard. They COULD be penalized in some way, but to fire them is beyond the pale (if it’s happening).

      This is the same thing the TEA Party did, but we used sticky/Post-it notes (much more easily removed). The idea is the same: constantly show your true feelings about the Brandon admin, however and wherever you can. They can’t combat that, thus the crazy.

I live outside the US, so I don’t see this happening, but I was wondering if rioters who buy gas to make Molotov cocktails get charged the “2020 Summer of Love” price.

After November, expect anyone caught putting one of those stickers on to be charged with some form of “thoughtcrime”.

    So can we say that you’re not optimistic about November?

      Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | March 5, 2022 at 8:15 pm

      What I think he’s saying is that the administration is holding off until November so as not to piss off any more voters than they already have. Once that’s out of the way they’ll have free reign

        Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | March 5, 2022 at 8:17 pm

        And I do mean “reign”, as in what a king does. They’ll have free rein too.

        That was my take, too, but it’s faulty because November will (almost certainly) change which party is in control of (very likely) both Houses of Congress. So they’ll have this Nov-Jan window to push stuff through, but Manchin will not budge. At least I don’t think so, but I have no special insight here.

        henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | March 6, 2022 at 6:23 am

        I think the piss-off bird done flown. They can revert stuff like vax and passport mandates, because those have always been totally discretionary oppressions. They’re going to have a way tougher time forcing gas prices, wood prices, housing prices, and general inflation itself back down.

So some whiney progs complained! Why are they at a gas station anyway, shouldn’t they be plugging their car in to charge and praying to Saint Greta?

I particularly like that the Professor is now sending out his own mean tweets. It was only a matter of time.

Blackrock and Vanguard the two biggest financial companies are the controlling stockholders in all the major oil companies. Both are controlled by leftist liberals.

    Oversoul Of Dusk in reply to dunce1239. | March 6, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Please name at least one major oil company where either Vanguard or Blackrock has a controlling interest.

    I say your claim is nonsense. Please provide evidence that I’m wrong. If you have an internet connection, you should be able to do it in less than an hour — if your claim is true.

I wish they’d leave the stickers on. If the supplier / franchisor company doesn’t want them there, post an explanatory sign asking for customer forbearance, that they’re just following orders.
