What? Are you NUTS? You could have been killed for what?$40 worth of gas. You had it on tape, just turn it over to the police and let them handle it. I'll tell you one thing, I'd die for my country but never for my job!

This individual (robber) is obviously a fool! And Blizzard is correct! Do they PAY YOU ENOUGH to risk your life? Protecting and serving is a Police function, not a gas station attendant's! As for the robber, WAS IT WORTH IT?

wait from so teir - Are you serious? It's not worth taking a chance with your life. Let the cops handle it. And let the insurance cover the loss. Like I said earlier, for my country, I;d die, for my employer, not so much!

I wonder if that was a half ton truck. She could have just sat in the back and it would not have moved any way.

Wow,should one of them been injured who would pay for that? The employer? I think not. They would've been left high and dry. So what if the company is out $40, your a gas station attendant!! They must have recently seen the new Batman movie and are now vigilantes, saving the world @$8.50/hr.

Why be so MEAN, and spoil what the attendant thought was a good deed. I agree the person was foolish to risk their life for their employer, but leave the poor person alone. The person may be fat, but I'm sure they would rather be fat than ugly !!

Disgraceful!!! If you can't afford to drive a 4x4 truck, don't expect others to pay for you. Buy a Honda or carpool!!! The fact that this guy actually does this sort of thing over and over just makes me angrier. Everyone is suffering with gas costs, and even with the slowly dropping prices, most of us have plenty of bills to catch up as a result of the backlash to this ongoing problem. And what about the safety of the station attendants??? This man needs to learn some people skills as well as financial ones, as it is quite apparent that he only thinks of himself. At 25, he should be grown up!
