I see people going over a few cent, but then dont bother lift the hosing so it cancels it out.

If I go over a few cent I make sure to have it on hand in case they ask for it, most places dont though

Shure if ye stop the flow, it stops the meter, yet a good bit continues on flowing out. I always get that little extra bit. It's even better when the gobshite before me didn't, which the rarely do.

Well, it was about that time that I realized those petrol pumps were actually 8 stories tall and was a crustacean from the Paleolithic Era. I said dammit it monster I aint given you no three fiddy, he then said, "how about two fiddy?".

I normally fill up with €30 and go a cents over, then I pay with a €50 note so its upto the cashier to decide whether to give me €20 change or €19.98, the other day I accidentally went 17c over, the cashier proceeded to count out €19.83

17c is taking the piss though.

As the price of petrol goes up its getting progressively harder to stop the pump right on the money

Yes, that's because when they do that, it's psychological pricing bull****. Costs €10 really but the cent off makes it look like €9 and change.

So if some retailer is doing that pathetic crap, you're damn right I'm going to make sure I get my change ...

Roll your eyes all you want, 100 x 1c a day, over a year is €365, seeing as most stations are open all year round.

Please explain otherwise.
