    Heard on the news people are replacing fuel in U-Haul trucks with WATER just prior to returning it!!!!!! U-Haul rep said "we already had to replace 5 engines" ..............it is only the beginning folks:( Anyone hear this or other horror stories related to gas prices?

    hell yeah. i know gas is high and all.....but people dont need to be dickweeds about it. dont ruin a company because you are a cheap lazy ass is the way i look at it. its really uncalled for.....as well as people filling up their vehicle and driving away from the pump without paying.....either way you look at it....its theft and absurd.

    its actually kinda sad that this is what the world in general has come to.

    you are right ridge..........just pay for the damn gas........as you have used it to move or whatever you were doing!!! some people should stand back and think for a minute and take a friggin reality check!!! its the way it is, aint gonna change no time soon, so deal with it in the correct manner.....which in this case........put gas back in the tank.......not no damn water!!

    T- all this stuff is getting filed in my brain-as we watch the greasy vermin dissolve the common decency we are trying to hold onto as a society....all I can say is it's only the beginning, and no the sky aint falling-WE are:(

    I agree! I mentioned to ya, that here in Phoenix there was another Home invasion. This time it was 4 to 6 Armed Mexican Nationals wearing Body armor and carrying/useing semi auto rifles. The man found inside his house was shot 30 times. He was dead. 3 of the "suspects" were caught. One admitted to being Mexican Military, and said that they were going to "take back" their country! I DARE them to try and take it from ME! *climbing off soap box looking for keys to "Mad Max" car*
