If you have to get to and from a place you're being a constumer to, then with all due respect/obligation you should be paid by the place you're
being a customer to for doing so. You should be paid in some way towards the gas it takes to get to and from there to just the shortest distance,
whether or not you take the shortest distance or even make other stops at other places along the way to and from. And it should work for one visit per
place per day per costumer.
Yes, you, the consumer (once it's somehow certified you paid for something or a service at a place), should be paid for the effort to travel by the
estimated gas it takes to get to and from there. For all you know you could have been killed on the way to and from a place. Shouldn't places that
get consumers feel obligated to pay you because of such the possibility you face in this dangerous world? (And I bet many of you got more stories than
the highway patrol to tell about something bad that happened going to or coming from a place you for some reason had to be a costumer to.)
If every place of business did it it would be as a way to make or save money, depending on how you look at it and how you can reap the acredited money
value through discount or pay out. Yes, you should be able to get it in cash, too, if you'd request that just incase you want to use the money
directly for gas or to pay for something at another place.
It all can start by them giving you discounts or pay outs upon after paying for something in the next time you visit. Like the benefits you can get
with frequent flyier miles, but better.
One way to make this 'all due respect' obligation thing work is you would have to register your current, permanant, verifiable home location and
automobile through a middleman agency...recieve a readable picture ID card so you can get your discount or money that's calculated by the gas it
takes your particular automobile to use in the shortest distance in route to and from.
It's as you scratch my back, I scratch your's with the places you're being a costumer to.
How many of you like this idea? Would you want it put into being legally required of all places you are a costumer to for if and when you choose to
register for the particular ID so to participate in recieving warranted discounts or pay outs?
And it shouldnt matter if you happen to use another automobile that uses up more or less gas you didnt register yet.
The driver who is the ID card barer with a family or friends might want to be the one to pay for something even if it's actually a family member or a
friend paying through you. That's so you can reap the money value that the family member or friend should feel obligated to ensure you get since you
bothered to take them with you.
Think of all the times you got something defective...and didnt find out till you got home... You know you have to go all the way back to the place for
an exchange or refund... Does it feel right that you have to even use up 'already paid for' gas or pay for extra gas to the traveling aspect which
is required to get the refund or do an exchange? Don't you see that the place you are a costumer to should be obligated legally, if not feeling
obligated morally, to pay you in some way for having to do the whole to and from thing?
