Fuelish Behavior

[Hey, You!] Thanks fer nuthin', gas-can grouch

I ran out of gas and walked a block to get some more at the Arco station off Katella and State College Boulevard in Anaheim. You were the cashier there. I live 1 mile from the station. I offered you the $6 I had on me, plus my driver's license to ensure I would come back to pay the balance of the $13 RIP-OFF 1-gallon container. You refused. You are a sorry little man.

But then the gentleman behind me in line offered to pay for the container without hesitation. It is great to know there are still some good people out there. Mr. Good Samaritan, thanks for your help! Oh, and Arco dude? I paid the guy back!
