    Smoking while filling up

    Today's experience nearly made me go nuclear. Allow me to explain...

    I was out riding my bike on this most beautiful of days. It's "Rodeo Week" in my little shit-hole town, so everything is asshole-to-elbow busy. I stopped of at McD's for lunch, did some light shopping at RiteAid, then stopped off at the gas station to get some smokes and sodas.

    Let me preface this by stating that, yes, I'm a smoker.

    As I propped my bike next to the building, I looked over and saw Mr. Dipshit. Filling his ancient Buick LeSabre with one hand, dragging on a Marlboro with the other. I stopped and said, "Hey, you mind putting that out?"

    He looked directly at me and said, and I quote, "Fuck off, asshole."

    Well, needless to say, today I felt like being a dick. I walked over to him and said, "Either put it out, or I put YOU out." in a complete deadpan. He looked at me, kind of like a dog does when he hears a strange noise, then threw the cig on the ground and stamped it out. In as nice a voice as I could muster, I said "Thanks!" and went on into the convenience store.

    My whole point is this: what kind of brain dead water-headed retard do you have to be to have a lit cigarette in your face while you're pumping gasoline??? It's the fluid that powers your internal COMBUSTION engine, for fuck's sake! Combustion = big bada boom, dumbass! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out, yet I see it all over the place!

    My only saving grace is knowing that Mr. Dipshit will die in an explosion caused by him and his cousin/brother/uncle Cletus lighting 1/4 sticks of dynamite with matches taped to their dicks or something...

    Good for you to put him in his place. People are stupid, and will eventually destroy everyone, one gas station at a time.

    It doesn't take much to ignite gasoline vapors.

    If you threw a cigarette into a bucket of gas, it would likely not ignite (same with a match) but the vapors you find at the pump are much easier to combust.

    heh

    If enough gas prices blew up at least we could find some higher gas prices. I'm tired of only paying $1.49 a gallon.

    I agree with Adam. You should of just let him blow himself up and clean out the gene pool.

    I would of told him to put it out to especially if I was pumping gas next to him.

    It's funny how people are so willing to talk a bit of shit until you seriously threaten them, then they cower at the idea of actual violence.

    mythbusters did a show on this. They tried everything to make a cigarette ignite gas, nothing worked. Their point was in the movies you always see someone throw a light cig or cigar into a gasoline trail and boom it ignites. If I remember correctly a cig only gets to be around 450 degrees and gas iginites around 500.

    beat me to it,.

    bastards beat me, i saw that episode and now when I see those warning labels on the gas pumps I laugh, but out of respect for those morons around me who think at any second I can blow them up I go to the side of the building to smoke if I am going to at all.

    I would think you would do it out of common sense, not out of "respect for those morons around me". Just because the results were inconclusive in an episode of Myth Busters does NOT mean it can't happen, and I damn sure didn't want to blow the fuck up that day.

    In light of this I think I will start smoking at fuel pumps even though I don't even smoke. Then, when some guy physically assaults me I'll spray him with gasoline and flick the cigarette at him to show him it won't turn him into a flaming alpha.
