Nickel and Dimed: A Postscript
The other day I was carping here about being relentlessly nickel-and-dimed at the Westin Hotel during my loooooong few days in Long Beach, Calif. Here's a postscript:
Delighted to be headed home today, from LAX, I stopped at a gas station at Century blvd. and LaCienega to fill up the rental car before returning it to Avis.
First thing that pops up on the gas-pump display screen when I swipe my credit card: "There is a service fee of 45 cents for this purchase."
