Default Gasoline panhandling

I'm only at the gas station to fill up once a week, always on the way home from work.

Two out the of the past three weeks I've gassed up I've seen this guy, he parks at a pump and when someone pulls up on the opposite side he asks for gas. The hoses reach the other side and so he's got it covered if you try to pull the 'I don't have any cash, bro' move. I only noticed him because the first time, I was that opposite pump guy, and now I feel cheated in thinking I was helping a low-on-gas burtha escape white devil suburbia by giving him a gallon of gas.

I decided I'm going fill up more regularly to see if this is a regular thing he's running, hopefully being able to park at the target pump each time to have some fun.

Or am I an ass for even wanting to rage upon his game?


Rosie/Immortal out.

Turn the pump handle at him and spray gas all over him then flick a cigarette at him.

I would eat whatever food gave me the worst gas every day for a week straight then be sure to get on the opposite pump. When he asks for gas let him have it.

Do you have a go pro? You need to set up a camera and film you trolling him.

If that happened to me, and I knew he was a con, I would tell him sure and pull the nozzle from my truck and fill his car with diesel fuel

Will the diesel nozzle fit in a gas fill tube? For some reason I thought it was slightly larger so people would accidently put diesel in a gasser.

Depends on the station. Speedway by me has truck islands and also has 2 pumps that pump gas and diesel those are smaller nozzles.

I'll have to get my hands on one of those out of order signs they put over the pump handle, slip it on and drive off, then watch how long he sits there in his car before he figures out why no one is stopping at the pump he has targeted.
