people that are too trusting

just finished work on the doors in manchester, there was 3 of us working and for practically the whole night there was 15 people kicking off, staring at us, etc
so it was a bit of a hard night

anyway it all went well, no trouble and i was driving home, i noticed i needed some petrol, so seen as its early i thought id stop for some, just a tenners worth

put me petrol in and that, and went in to pay
now working in a petrol station that hasnt got one of those counters where you pay (ie, everyone walks in all night) isnt a job id like at all

there was an old woman working there and she obviously hadnt seen anyone for a while, it must be a depressing job
she then congratulated me on being so honest and paying, i was a bit surprised by her saying this
she then left me stood at the counter while she disappeared in the back, she came out and then inadvertedley told me how the other people had got away with out paying

i was nice to her, and had a short chat but obviously id had a hard day at work so i did one (politely) after a bit

i then came home and worked out why so many people get away with it, ie shes telling everyone

poor lady

    Odd one mate, doesn't she have CCTV?

    People rarely seem to get away with it over here, but then you could pack the population of Ireland into London twice including immigrants.
    At my local, you have to prepay after 11 and the pumps automatically shut off at given amount.

    Older people are often optimistic with how much to trust people, it wasnt the same back in their day....

    True.

    but

    If we abandon things such as trust, respect, mannors etc because 'everyone else does' what hope do we have

    I think the big question is now you now how to get away without paying - are you going to next time?


    of course i'll pay next time, but i bet others she tells wont
    i wont say how they do it, its not very technical, but it was the fact she left me stood there at the counter for about 5 minutes while she went in the back, yeah theres camera but i could have half-inched anything
    i wouldnt leave a 14stone young lad with a shaved head who's dressed all in black and looking like he's had a hard night on his own

    i think she just wanted to chat to someone, i just wanted to get pi55ed

    right what she's saying they do is
    they fill up and go to the counter at night saying they dont have any money

    they leave their details and how much they owe, then never show up again

    it didnt seem to make sense to me either

    The most common method is to use stolen plates

    No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

    thats what i thought she was going to say, either that or simply driving off

    it had the amounts as well and some people had done it with little figures like a tenner, hardly seems worth it if you were to get caught

    Thats why people do it funny enough.

    When I was a student I'd try these sort of things, managed to get quite a few litres of petrol free!

    Liek you say its over a small amount so is it worth the hassle of them taking you to court over a tenner or fiver?

    Although the stations round this way will now call the police as its been done so many times.

    In the morrisons garrage near me if you move your car forward so the guy behind can fill up while you're paying the camera takes your plate No. so next time you go it registers you as a "drive off" and it won't let you pump any petrol.
    Seen it happen to a few people and the staff can't reverse it once it's done. you have to buy your fuel somwhere else in future. lol. Gutted, just for trying to be helpful.
