The truck drivers knew the food and candy cost more and point it out. I think Mae says something like a friendly (I paraphrase)"whats it to you?" When the truck drivers leave they give her more money than the bill. When Mae asks them why they say the same thing to her. They were touched by Mae's generosity.
