Re: Oregon motorist billed for ripping off gas pump hose
I bought a car back in 2005 and my wife drives it mostly.
The gas cap is on the rear right so I was not used to it.
I started pumping and went into the store.
When I came back out I forgot about it since it's on the far side of the car.
I popped the safety connector on the hose as I drove off.
I went into the store and confessed my sins.
The kid called up his boss and the boss told him to send me on my way.
Even if I had to file a claim to pay it would have only been $450.00.
That was my lucky day.
I may have been born yesterday. But it wasn't at night.
