    "Some of them guys are pretty sharp."

    How long would you stand there holding a nozzle you haven't yet squeezed, that's not even in the tank, with the numbers running and nothing coming out, without stopping it by simply replacing the nozzle?... 4 seconds?...10 seconds. maybe?

    It's just the theory of relativity being proven yet again.
    The thieves only appear to be sharp....
    ....relative to the massive dullness of their victims.

    WOW that is so low tech and just great,lol
    With all the long hoses it seems it would work pretty easy sometimes. But boy oh boy if the person getting fooled found out,what a mess it could be!

    sounds like we need Oregon legislature to pass an emergency clause to shorten the length of our gas hoses....

    So simple it's actually kind of brilliant.

    pretty damn ballsey to rip someone off standing 4 feet away from you but clever.
    I get why people might just stand there confused long enough for the perp to just pump 5 gallons and drive off.
