WI residents find 35 cents gas
A gas station in central Wisconsin accidentally set their pump to 35 cents a gallon rather than $3.54 a gallon. Rather than alert the owner/attendant people fill up their cars, tell family and friends, and even come back with additional gas cans to fill up. For 90 minutes dozens of people filled up on 200-300 gallons worth.
And these people seem to be happy about screwing the owner over?
Am I alone in thinking this is outright theft? Or at least morally disgusting?
I’ll be honest that if something rings up cheaper at Target when I buy it I’ll probably take my savings. But that savings would have to be something like getting a $15 DVD for $12.
But what these people did would be comparable to finding out that $15 DVD rang up for $1.50, went back and bought 4 more, and then called all their friends so they could come and buy the rest of them for $1.50.
Do you consider these people lowlifes for doing such a thing or do you side with them and their reasoning “The gas station made a mistake and I’m just profitting from their mistake. I did nothing illegal. It’s their problem not mine.”
