i do not condone criminal behavior, this comment is for comical purposes only.
Yeah, I had to sign the contract. Happened to one of my friend's. He has gotten a car where I got mine at, and they shut him off in the middle of town.

Eh their alright. Some other dealers around here do the same thing with shutting down their cars. It has lojack, and some other device. My uncle's truck got shut off due to a late payment at a different dealer. One of my friend's he's gotten a car from the place I got mine at, and he's been late one time, and they shut his car off in the middle of town. Yeah, it's all messed up but it is what it is.

Their in house insurance only covers their car, which the state doesn't require proof of that type of insurance. (Sounds like BS to me to, trust me) I pay 43 every two weeks, and for my age that's unrealistically cheap. I still have to get liability of my own to cover the other people's injuries if I do get in a wreck, but money is very tight for me right now.

My cousin works there, and she doesn't let them screw me around. Still have AC problems though.

mikebontoft it happens plenty... new vehicles are now equipped with said devices. (GM especially with onstar) if they find you speeding they can send a ticket through the mail. they can even disable your vehicle if you fail to pay.

Elizabeth got that right though... every pump I've seen has a quick-disconnect made by Husky.

Elizabeth The hoses are designed to come apart for just what you did. Since the station did not explode I guess they had hoses which disconnect.

mrdeath2000 I think you NEED proof of insurance if you get pulled over...

Oh and don't go back to that station for a while LOL.

You made a booboo, it happens.

Edit: Did some reading and apparently it is up to the gas station whether or not they pursue payment for the broken pump. It seems to me the girl was not trained in handling the situation because she should've alerted the manager and taken your contact information.

What brand of station did this occur at? This happens on average once a month at gas stations across the US and most stations leave it up to the managers whether or not they file a claim with insurance or press any charges. If the situation is handled poorly (like in this case where the cashier did not follow any type of procedure) it will be difficult for the station to put any blame on you. YOU talked to her, they'll have that on camera if they need to review it. She let you go without getting your contact info.

I wouldn't worry. If anything comes back to you make sure you've got your story and go into the situation with an apology. Those pumps are about $300 to fix and lord knows the gas companies make more than that every minute. The chances you'll have to pay for anything are minimal.
She was a teen. Real young. I'm just not sure if she actaually knew what happened. I went in there as she was taking care of customers, and she saw me, and said it's okay. Was she talking about the 15 dollar in the wrong pump, or the accident? I didn't say any thing to her, and I was so embarresed I took off. If they see me on camera then what do I do, and what will happen?
