Gas Station Attendant Fire Extinguishes Guy Who Refuses To Stop Smoking At The Pump

October 4, 2017

This is some security camera footage from a gas station where a badass (who happens to be wearing a DOPE hat) refuses to extinguish his cigarette, so a gas station attendant extinguishes it for him. Who smokes at a gas pump anyways? When I'm pumping gas I don't want to smell anything but the gasoline. I like to FOCUS on getting as much as that smell inside me as I can. And if I happen to spill a little bit on my shirt so I can still enjoy it later, who's to judge? "Everyone." I'm sorry, maybe you're just not used to finding a man who knows what he likes. "You're addicted." Am not. "I just saw you stick a Wite-Out pen up your nose." It helps curb my gasoline cravings!

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to Luc, who agrees the only thing that should be smoked at the gas station is the beef jerky.

    that stuff is worse for the customer's lungs than getting exploded by a cigarette

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    And gas pumps on fire are worse for every other customer, the owners, and the community in general.

    I'd have shot him with the extinguisher even if he wasn't smoking.

  • My favorite part is that the employee appears to take advantage of the guy's shock by reaming him out after extinguishing him. And that the guys friends give the employee a wide birth after exiting the car and witnessing said reaming.

    Give that man a raise!

    He's gonna need it to pay for his legal fees for the assault he committed on camera.

    Not sure where the vid was taken, a lot of countries have laws that go along the line of 'self defense' but are aimed not at threats against the own life but against either someone else life or against legal assets (like public safety). And I could see how smoking while being reminded not to do so will possibly justify this.

    He extinguished a fire hazard. Plain and simple, not assault.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Well... no. I mean, sure it's potentially feasible for a cigarette butt to ignite fumes. But I've seen cigarettes flung into pools of gasoline on hot days. The cigarette even sizzled for a bit. Never ignited the fuel.

    Granted, this was also about 12 years ago and they use a lot more ethanol now. So... not quite apples to apples. But also assaulting people with a fire extinguisher is not a smart thing to do.

    Too bad it wasn't a Halon fire extinguisher. Then everyone in the car would have cancer and so would the old guy using it. Actually that's not true. They would have died before getting cancer.

    It's not the 'pools of gasoline' that are dangeroous, it's the fumes...
    A cigarette stub in a glass with a finger width of of gasoline will be doused.
    Shake the glass first and throw in the cigarette again...

  • GeneralDisorder

    Cigarettes don't burn that hot. You have to do something especially stupid to ignite gasoline with a cigarette. Like... maybe spray it through an atomizing nozzle while flicking the cigarette and taking a drag at the same time.

    So this is what David Letterman has been up to since retirement…

  • Enkidu98

    Kid is so stupid he can't even wear his identifying cap correctly and properly warning the attendant who he was dealing with.

  • Hazakabammer

    Sun cap at night, whilst driving. Says everything really. I'm more shocked he wasn't driving with his lights off and sunglasses on whilst texting.

  • Jason Christopher

    I love this.
    Edit: I just wish there was audio.

  • OTee DE

    YES, especially the guy at the left pump gets my kudos.
    I would crack at that moment, but he calmly pumps his car.
