In For A Penny… Part 4

, , , , | Right | January 22, 2023

I worked at a gas station as a teenager and, among many transactions, one customer interaction stood out. The customer asked for a fill-up and pumped all of the amount she wanted EXCEPT for one cent. I opened the register and took out one penny. 

Me: “Here you go. One cent is your change. Have a nice day.”

Customer: “Can you send the remainder back so I can pump it?”

Me: “You want one cent worth of gas?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “I do not think any gas will come out. The pump may not even push any gas through.”

Customer: *As she walks back to the pump* “It’s fine. Thanks.”

Hope the effort was worth it.
