This is the time of year where I like to remember all the good in the world considering we do plenty of stories on the bad.
Here's an example recently as I was covering one of the myriad of stories regarding the Christmas Blizzard, we caught up with some drivers at a gas station to talk about their drive.
We asked for permission from the gas station employees and she gave the OK.
We pulled the camera from the vehicle and a few people scattered. (Cameras have a way of doing that to some people. Most of them just don't want to be on television which I understand.)
After a few minutes of interviews, we went inside to buy some food and drink for the drive home. That's when the clerk had this shocking look on her face. She wanted to know if we got gas. I said no.
She wondering if we saw anyone drive off without paying for gas. We didn't. She wanted to know if we recognized the car at a certain pump. We remembered he had driven off in a hurry but, again, we figured he just didn't want to be on TV.
She was worried about getting fired because it had happened two times the day before. We were concerned that we somehow created a distraction for a criminal.
A few hours later, I got a call at the station from one of the people I had interviewed. He let me know that he had forgotten to pay for gas and had gone back to the store to fix it. He said the clerk was clearly relieved.
Hats off to the guy who went back to pay because we usually hear about the ones who do not.
