Today at the Texaco
I stopped in at the Texaco today for gasoline, a car wash, and windshield wiper fluid. I pay cash now (more on this later) so I went into the store to pay for the other two things and prepay for my gas.
The car wash and wiper fluid totaled $10.41.
Me: I also need some gas on pump #7. I’ll pay you $30 so just put the rest towards gas.
Teller Lady: Uh…
Me: (looking at the register sub-total) … So in other words, I want $19.59 in gas.
Teller Lady: (punches a bunch of numbers on the register)
Teller Lady: Okay. Wow, you were so close! It’s actually $19.59 in gas.
Yes, I was close. In fact, it would be hard to be any closer.
