One stop, two favors

The first favor is the kind that happens every day. The second one, not so common. Here’s the story:

Henry and Peggy Lueck were in town this weekend from Wisconsin visiting their daughter. They stopped for gas Sunday evening at the Holiday Station Store at Rice Lake Road and Arrowhead Road, and Henry was having a hard time with the pumps. A nice woman helped him figure out which buttons to push and levers to pull.

That’s favor No. 1. Nice but not all that newsworthy.

Then, according to Peggy, Henry finished pumping gas and went inside to pay. He stepped up to the clerk and learned about favor No. 2: The woman who helped him figure out the pump had also snuck inside and paid for his gas.

Henry and Peggy say thanks, 36 times.
