Yes. I recall them saying during the trip "Oh it looks like we were right on the money with gas". That's not really the upfront way of saying that, but that's how I took it.
And like I said - I am more than happy to cover the wear and tear, as well as the time they spent. But I would have just appreciated the truth of it being open with me. It's not like I would have had a problem, because when I asked if they could haul for me, I told them I was happy to cover gas/time/ect. It was them who said gas only would be fine.
I'm probably being OCD here, but the deception doesn't sit very well with me. You know, you're entitled to as much as I paid, but why try to sit there and act like you're being a great person and accepting less than you could...when that's not entirely true. Like I said, I almost feel bad to be thinking about this, because they are very kind to help me out, and I'm very grateful they did. I just can't wrap my head around why they were telling me things that weren't entirely true.
I don't know, maybe the truck just gets worse mileage than I imagined. It's not something I'm going to confront the person about. I'd like to be wiser next time though.
