We were always to be nice, smile and do what ever we were asked to do, no matter how stupid or unnecessary it may be. And most important of all, the customer is always right.
Bill made a good living from his station. He had numerous lifelong customers, many who had used him for decades. Bill loved to hunt and fish and when not pumping gas that was his relaxation. I loved working for Bill and learned a lot from him. He had a son, Reed, about my age and we were friends as well as relatives. Unfortunately, Reed died several years back and what a loss that was. When at the gas station I often reflect on my summer being one of those at the time many gas attendants in Rushville.
