I was looking out the window towards the gas pumps when I was at work tonight. There’s a guy standing at the driver’s door of his silver Dodge Durango and I watch him light up a cigarette. Figuring he’s just about to get in and leave, I don’t move to do anything about it.
Until I see him walk to the back of his SUV, with the smoke in his mouth, and open up the gas tank. This is where I jet over to the intercom, punch the 1/2 button (for pumps 1 and 2) and dumbfoundedly spit out “Um, there’s no smoking around the gas pumps, put out the cigarette immediately please” just as he removes the gas hose to bring it over to his truck.
Fortunately, he leans over and crushes out the smoke. But he must have been a bit embarrassed, because he just hung up the pump and took off. Without closing his gas tank filler.
Stupid is as Stupid does.
