Gas Yourself Up Before You Gas Up

, , , , , , | Legal | September 25, 2023

When filling up my car, I usually use prepaid pumps where you run your card, a certain amount gets reserved, and once you’ve finished pumping, you can simply close your fuel cap and drive off.

Today, I was at a fuel station where you pay afterward with a real person. Unfortunately, my mind was on autopilot, so I drove off without paying. I realised this a few minutes down the road, so I turned around and went back. 

When I got back, a police car was parked in front of the shop, and inside, the officer was chatting to the cashier.

Me: “Hi, I’m here to pay. I drove off about fifteen minutes ago. I’m terribly sorry; I usually use prepaid pumps, and I totally blanked out. I hope I’m still good?”

Cashier: “Ah, thanks for coming back. The amount is [amount].” *To the officer* “I think we can cancel the report then.”

Me: “And could you also add a double espresso, please?”

The officer burst out laughing.

Officer: “Sounds like you needed that a little earlier, man!”
