Ummm... ok? Still don't see why people driving those cars can't get coffee or soda at a gas station...

I don't think the OP was out of line for asking the question given the circumstances and his history with the store, but I personally wouldn't have been offended if the clerk denied my request. Quite frankly, to the OP, while you may have paid the clerk back, and the clerk could most likely have used $.10 or $.20 of his/her own money until you showed again or if you failed to show, I think its generally a good rule not to entertain those requests. There are plenty of people who would also think they are owed such a courtesy but who, for whatever reason, would forget to pay that back, which could put the clerk in an awkward position of asking for the money or using his/her own money. I don't think anyone should have to ask people for their money back, regardless of how small the amount is. And, note, though the amount may be small, the clerk may not have had any change/cash of his/her own. Why should the clerk have risked his/her job (unbalanced registers can and do cost clerks their jobs), and for such a small amount of money?
