A company doing work on campus chained thee nitrogen compressed gas cylinders to a tree in front of a dormitory. And left them there, for several days. Two were capped, but one of them had a regulator attached, with tubing going into a hole in the ground.
One day, two of this company's employees were seen removing one of the cylinders from the tree (one with a cap). They lay in cylinder on its side on the ground, rolled it with their feet to the curb, then rolled it off the curb and into the street to their truck. There, they picked it up by hand and manually lifted it into their truck.
