A Proud Dad Moment......

My daughter knew she didn't have enough cash to fill the tank but she had $20 so it would at least keep her going.

After rolling her eyes and sighing at the price, she inserted the hose and started adding gas to her car. Click. Click. Click. Click.

She didn't want to go over $20 so she glanced at the dollar dial as the gas was being pumped. Hmm. THAT didn't look right!?

A fellow at the next pump had just come out of the store after paying and she called him over "Does this dollar figure make sense to you?" she asked.

He laughed and said "Wow, girl, you've got a bargain going here. Wish I had chosen THIS happy pump!" He chuckled and got in his car, smiling back at her.

She had stopped the pump at 10 gallons but it read she owed only $4.20. Somehow the dial was malfunctioning and charging ONLY 0.42.9 a gallon. She went into the store and had the manager come out to see.

"Oh, thank you, thank you," he exclaimed. "I have no idea how long this has been happening but you are the first person to come in and tell me."

She explained that she had only $20 for gas and he laughed and said "No problem! That $20 is fine. Do you want to top it off?"

She declined. thanked him and drove away.

I doubt she was the first one at that pump.She WAS the best one.
