Not Only On TV

Now this is something I always thought you only saw on TV or maybe YouTube but never really thought it happened. However today I found out that does really happen as it happened at the petrol station my daughter works at, while she was at work.

She had just finished serving a customer when she heard a loud bang and looked outside to see a man in his 4 wheel drive driving away from a pump with the hose still in his petrol tank. Her first thought was oh shit what to do then she remembered and hit the emergency stop button, then she walked out the back and said shit shit shit a man has just pulled out a pump the guys walked out had a look told her to ring the boss and started cleaning up the spill.

She was glad it didn't happen while she was the boss.....................although her boss had never had it happen to him either and wasn't sure what to do, he had to ring head office and find out.

At least she said she it wasn't a boring day at work...............................


  1. Oh goodness, have to see it to believe it. What some low life will do get petrol.
    I have seen this happen once at Newman in WA. My husband was filling up with petrol, a women was filling up with diesel, when my husband went into pay, the lady took off without paying.

  2. Well that's an experience for her. I would have been scared it would blow up.

  3. Hi Girls

    I think it would have scared me too, the guy did go and pay want to pay for his petrol but not easy to know how much he actually put in his tank as there was petrol everywhere.

  4. Nothing surprises me these days....People are getting more brazen or is that stupid when it comes to getting out of paying for things...

  5. scary. could have been nasty. dangerous. are you over your cold/flu? Fran



Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on? When it comes to disagreements with others what do you do are you one to...
