The Points Were A Bonus

| Working | July 24, 2017

(I’m in a hurry to my first shift for an overnight job and stop to pick up an energy drink at a gas station to help me last the night. I have a rewards card with this particular gas station, but no cash so I use my debit card to pay. While I’m inputting my PIN on the machine, another customer comes in behind me and leaves almost instantly. When I look up, the cashier is holding $40 and looking annoyed.)

Cashier: “I hate it when they throw money at me. Hey, give me your [Rewards Card].”

Me: “Huh? Um, okay…?”

(I hand her my rewards card and she scans it, adding more reward points. She added the points that last customer would have had if he hadn’t run out on her so fast!)

Cashier: “You now have [higher amount of bonus points] instead of [bonus points listed on my receipt]. Have a good night!”

Me: “Wow, thanks!”

(I left with a smile on my face. This is why I love that particular gas station!)
