To my knowledge, I've never been ripped off by a gas attendant, but one has saved me from being scammed.

I went to pump my gas late one night, and some kids approached saying they ran out of gas and didn't have enough money to make it back home. I asked where they lived, and figured $10 would get them home. Instead of paying them, I went into the store, handed the clerk the $10 and said it was gas money for the kids.

Just as I was getting back into my car, the clerk came out and said the kids were asking him to give the money back to them instead of using it for gas. The kids jumped in their car, started it, and took off. The clerk gave the money to me, and I gave it right back to him.

I'm impressed when people keep their integrity, even while working a minimum wage job, and when nobody is watching over them.
