To demonstrate his concern that the newly acquired enterprise was being run efficiently, the bank president sent one of his loan officers to the gas station to check the operation. The loan officer decided to get the feel of the business by helping out at the pumps, and when his first customer said, "Fill 'er up," the banker started to spring into action, but then asked the customer: "How far are you going?"
