Convenience Stores Complaint - Drive Offs - Gasoline
MINNESOTA -- At the Convenience Store, where I work at, we have a high volume of drive-offs. I know we could do alot to improve the problem, but management has policies that prevents us employees from doing anything. The women that I work with have literally run under hoses of people pumping gas to catch people driving off.
Alot of states have prepay policies and don't have this problem, but where I live we can't do that unless the rest of the state does it. We are also not allowed to call the police, even when we have a plate number. What people don't realize though, is that gas prices are higher because of money lost on drive-offs. If people can't afford to put gas in their cars then take a bus, and them same people are probaly ones who drive without insurance too. It's suppose to be a law, that if you get caught not paying for gas, you can lose your license. At some stores they make the employees pay for the drive-offs, which is so unfair!!
