THE HOGsVlLLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2000 She Likes Our Honesty! bear Editor: On Thursday, ,June 22, I was return- to Albany from a business trip to Atlanla. I stopped at the Amoco Money !Back !store #14) in Hogansville for gas !and accidentally left my credit card in !the gas pump "swiper." Of course, I was completely unaware I had done this. I finished pumping my gas, took my little receipt (thank goochmss), and drove off. The next day, I reached for my cred- t card to pay a restaurant bill and found it missing. In thinking back, I remembered that i might have left it in the pump at the . .'   ........ i station. My assistant found the name of the business on the receipt, called infor- mation, and reached the store. To our amazement, the card was there - having been turned in by one of Amoco's honest customers. After giving our address, we received the card on Wednesday, June 28. I want to thank Amoco Money Back (store #14) so much for being a real SER- VICE station! As a woman in business, who travels frequently by car over long distances, it is a real comfort to know that I am giving my business to one who deserves it so much. You may be assured that I am now an unofficial member of the Hogansville Chamber of Commerce, having experi- enced the pleasure of doing business with them. I once again want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. It is my hope that they will find kind- ness and honesty returned in full meas- ure in the business success.
