A filmed Mercedes driver taking all the rubber gloves from a petrol pump in Salford apologized for his “selfish and irresponsible actions” by saying that he “deeply regrets” what he did.
As the Manchester evening news Reportedly, the dash cam footage recorded by Steve Harrison at Tesco in Walkden, Salford, on Thursday, showed the driver to grab about 15 pairs of blue protective gloves.
Public Health England is suggesting that drivers wear gloves when filling cars to combat the spread of coronavirus.
In the movie, Steve, 54, can be seen approaching Mercedes to face the driver.
He said, “I felt so strongly about what he had done that I had to go further and face it. I wasn’t holding back.
“It was just an instant reaction. I thought” ego b * stard “. At the moment we have to think about everyone else.
“A person could transmit the coronavirus to 30 people by not being able to use a glove at that pump.
“At the moment, we all have to take care of each other, but this guy was just worried about himself, nobody else.
“Just don’t be selfish, think of everyone else. People die every day from it.”
The Mercedes driver, who asked not to be named, contacted the Manchester evening news after seeing the story published earlier today (Friday).
He said he intended to take only one pair of gloves, but accidentally grabbed the lot and was therefore too embarrassed to return it.
The man said, “I deeply regret taking them. He was selfish and irresponsible.
“I am going to make a donation to an NHS charity or to a charity that is helping with coronavirus.
“I just wanted to grab a couple, but they were all grouped together and went out all at once.
“To be honest, I was a little embarrassed to put them back, so I threw them on the car seat.
“There were about 15 pairs. I wore a pair, I gave my wife a pair and gave some to the people in the queue for Aldi.
“The rest is still on my seat.
“I’m very sorry. He was very irresponsible.”
