Ever notice that when you give your credit card to the gas attendant, he sometimes puts it back in but not all the way.  Why does he do that?  Any guesses?  I'm thinking that if you forget to ask him for it, he just might put it in the pump when someone askes for gas and pays cash.  He keeps the cash, puts the charge on your card, and who knowes nothing?  Am I way off base here or has that happened to you?  Ever get your bill and notice two charges in the same day on the same station?  Just wondering.

Hi Kenneth;

In toady's world you cannot trust anyone. It happened to me once.

I am sure it happens, but I still would like to believe and trust people.  If you start worrying about pennies that is what you will end up with.

Good morning Kenneth... I have not been charged twice for a purchase as of yet. I do watch my statements every month just to make sure.

Hi Kenneth - I won't happen in Virginia.  We haven't had gas attendents for years.  Its all pump your own.  I remember when I was much younger when we had attendants who actually pumped your gas, chaecked the oil and washed your windshield.  There was actually service at the service station.  And they all had mechanics too.  Oh for the good old days when gas was under a dollar a gallon too.
