Sign of the Times-Man uses stolen gas cards to fill up tanks

I tell you this economy is having folks hustling left and right. In North Carolina man was accused of letting others gas up with stolen gas cards from the BNK engineering company. The card were used more than 300 times.
The company says over $23,000 worth of gas was falsely charged.

Breaking and entering, financial card theft and larceny are just some of the charges Dillard Johnson faces. On Thursday, Johnson, who was already in jail for a different crime with the same charges, was re-arrested, leaving BNK a $19,000 gas bill in just three days.

Police say Johnson would wait around gas stations, and then he would go up to drivers offering to pay for their gas with a stolen credit card. So instead of paying $50 dollars, you would only have to give him $20.

I don't know whether to laugh or just shake my head. Maybe I'll do both...guess he figured a man gotta do what a man gotta do. But, what about the folks who agree to let him pay for their gas? Surely they knew that something just wasn't right with that picture. hmm - guess a (wo)man gotta do what a (wo)man gotta do. {laughing and SMH}
