Life Lesson: Beware of Sliders

Have you heard about the new band of thieves that is coming to a gas station near you, sliders? While you are pumping gas, trying not to spend more than $30, street youths are silently opening your passenger door and swiping your purses that are more than likely sitting in the passenger seat. And all of this in a matter of seconds. What can you do to prevent becoming the next victim of "sliders"? Lock your car door while pumping gas. It's a simple enough solution. If someone is willing to take the time to jimmy open the locked door while you are standing two feet away deserves to be apprehended and taken to jail. This new trend is something to be aware of, especially if you are past the age of having your dad pump your gas.

I also want to address the other misconstrued slider in your life: the extra-small hamburger that have been taking burger joints by storm. As per my cupcake rant, I just see sliders as a small, and not better, version of a regular-sized hamburger. I mean really...less meat and more bread makes for an unhappy Jess. I feel like I am getting ripped off. Even though they make you feel like you are getting more for your money by giving you three for the price of one. I'm calling your bluff, sliders.

In conclusion, always be on your guard when it comes to sliders, whether they are the next pump over or at Chili's.

I would like some of the sliders...the 2nd ones...not the stealing ones.

My fiancee always makes fun of me for locking my car door at gas stations. I'm going to show him this and say HA! Thank you for sharing. :)

Sliders... wow. That seems pretty smart, not good, but smart. How crazy the world is getting, that you can't even pump gas without someone sneaking into your car.

hahah! Good advice for locking your car door while pumping gas. I actually do it every time just out of habit. And yeah, sliders are a total rip-off... :D
