I Ran Out of Gas, Can I Have Yours?
Man Busted Siphoning Gas with Hose in Mouth
Caught siphoning gas from a court house parking lot. Really? Couldn't you have picked a place that didn't have a lot of cops hanging around?
I'm surprised I haven't seen this at my store. Since we really don't have drive-offs anymore due to our 'Pay First' policy, I thought I'd see people trying to steal gas in other ways.
Instead, what I usually see are people hanging around outside asking customers for money. These people will come up with some sob story about how they ran out of gas and need to get to the hospital to pick up their grandma.
These people probably make a good living every day by claiming they need gas money.
Usually when I see people do this, I will go outside and tell them to leave, because I know it makes our regular customers uncomfortable.
If someone was outside of a store asking me for money, I probably wouldn't go back to that store if there were many others like it around. Would you?
