Pay before you pump. It's not rocket science.

If all gas stations would invest some money in turning their pumps in a position where the car licence plates could all be read easily from inside the business, there wouldn't be a problem in identifying the people who drive off without paying. Many stations have people pull up "sideways" to the business where reading the licence plates would be impossible unless the clerks actually came out to look. Clerks could be responsible for jotting down the license plates on each vehicle or they can have a camera strategically located at the front of the store capable of reading each licence plate. It's not rocket science people.
Sometimes i have seen only one clerk in a store trying to do the job of 3 people. How the heck can they jott down license plates take care of 5 people standing in line, people wanting lottery checked and all the other crap they must do for minimum wage!! If there is a drive off and the company is not set up with pre pay or good license plate cameras i say its the company who must be held resposible!!Its that simple!

I'm guessing you've never worked at a gas station. Jotting down every single license plate during a rush would be next to impossible without pissing off every single customer waiting in line. It's during the rushes, usually after work or school, that most of the drive offs happen because people know the clerk has too much going on to pay attention to everything.

They could hire someone just for that specific job. You know, somebody fast on their feet and sneaky so the customer never sees them. They could even dress them up to look like one of the pumps.

So today I prepaid for gas for about $10 when I started pumping the gas I looked off when I looked back it said about $15. I went to the register and asked what happened she said she must of not charged me. She then wanted me to pay the $15 which I didmt have I only had the $10. I was useing a gas card at walmart.like I always do. So she says I owe her $6.52 but I have no cash I dont get paid till tomarrow. she took down my name and asked if I would come back with the money. I said I could try but all of my friemds are broke. What should I do? I dont think its right that I pay for her.mess up but my mom works at a.gas station so I know how it could screw her over. What.would you do?

Yes they can. That is stealing but a misdemeanor. You say you get paid tomorrow and you got the gas you didn't have money for now but you will need later, right? So why even ask, you pay her. This will help her to watch better.

You people are idiots! The clerks that are being held responsible are the ones that work at gas stations the require pre pay which is most places these days and that's how it should be and that's because there are low life scum bags out there that ruin it for everyone. Same people that are on here, people that have no jobs and want and expect a hand out. Obama lovers. You people seriously make me sick and I'm amazed at how stupid you are. All the comments and responses, I could not believe there wasn't one person smart enough to figure out "pre pay." What is wrong with you people? Smh. It's not even funny. It's pathetic.

Since the majority of this town is Republican, your Obama lover comment makes no sense whatsoever.

Stealing from your employer is no different than what the people that drive off are doing. Stealing is stealing. Sounds like you have some stand up morals! If you're an employee that doesn't like the business policy (which I'm sure is clear upon taking the job)...them quit or don't take the job to begin with.

<quoted text>That is wrong an employee has to pay back the employer after someone robs the place of gas. The next thing you know the store owner will charge the employee for shortages after every inventory. You should call the justic dept in jeff city and ask who to talk to and they will guide you to the right dept. then report your place of buisness. You can also make a police report after each drive off and when an if they do catch the drive off person, they catch most of them, you are the one who can get the money back not the store owner. Either that or rob the store owner yourself slowly over time like a cancer cell and get your money back from the prick store owner that way. Or slip and fall and hurt your back and sue the prick store owner or when the store owner leaves for the day put some out of order signs on the farthest gas pumps or make everyone pre pay for gas or skim a few cents from every customer to cover your losses or find a new job then post the store owner and store name on this topix and tell your story of the ignorent prick store owner and hurt the buisness that way. You don't steal from an employee who only gets paid enough to barley get buy, the store owning prick can buy insurence for gas drive offs which the greedy basterd most likely has already.
