In Calwell please sees the attendant inside

calwell pump sign

Rangi’s sent in these pictures of the signage at the Calwell Caltex.

I guess when communicating with a petrol thieving clientelle there’s not much point to proofing the signs.

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world?

Email it in to images@the-riotact.com .

So let’s stop stealing from one pump…and try and steal from another?

Just another reason not to live in the deep south.

For the sake of fairness and balance in reporting, it’s worth pointing out that none of Canberra’s petrol stations are pre-pay IF you step out of a sports car wearing a business suit to fill up with 98 octane. This applies regardless of what time of night it is.

They could have got full marks if they’d typeset it in MS Comic Sans.

It seems that although I lives in Tuggeranong, I don’t understand Tuggeranongese: if only one pump is a pre-pay pump, and a thieves can just moves to a post-pay pump, how does that prevent theftses?

Perhaps this particular pump is out of sight (or at a bad angle) to the cameras.

The other pumps are turned off.

My guess is that either that particular pump isn’t easily visible from the till, and / or isn’t covered by the CCTV at the station.

Limiting it to only one pump is probably to do with the relatively poor sight lines or camera angles on this pump versus the others. Easier to report a drive off if you’ve got some kind of way to report the rego or footage of the offender.

That sign gives me a vision of a skinny bloke with no front teeth.

In the US, every petrol pump I visited required pre-pay with a card at the pump. It was a bloody nuisence when holidaying there though, using an Aussie card, as often you had to put in your zip code… all 5 digits. I missed my US card at those times.

Surprisingly, all of the employees at that petrol station are very good looking young men.

I wonder who owns it or leases it or manages it and thus employs the very good looking young men?
