Question of The Day: 55
Do you still worry about pumping the gas to an exact dollar figure when you pay with a credit card?
I had to stop to get gas today, and because the Babies! in the car, I used my debit card to pay at the pump. Despite the fact that I wasn't paying with cash, and had no reason to worry about going over or getting change back, I still did that same thing I've done all my life, slowly closing in on $10.00: $9.92. $9.95. $9.99... ah... did it.
And each time I do that, I think Why? Why not just stop at $9.97, or $10.01, or $11.37, for that matter? But I don't. It just doesn't seem right, pumping gas to some weird number.
