Gas station attendant

[Late night. Pulled in to get gas now as opposed to running around in the morning. Recognised the gas station attendant, older gentleman, super nice guy]
1. Asalamualaikum [smile]
2. Walaikum salam

2. Give me some advice.
[1 looks up]
1. Fear Allah and do not associate anything with Allah.
2. Shirk?
1. Yes. It reminds me about the story of Luqman in the Qur’an. He told his own son that shirk was forbidden and to not come near it.
2. Okay sir. Thank you.
