There are a few rules people do not always follow when filling up their vehicles at the gas station. You’re supposed to turn your engine off – that’s right, don’t let it run – while filling up the tank. And you’re not supposed to smoke while pumping gas given the danger of the fire hazard. When people leave the engine running and smoke cigarettes at the gas station while filling up their tank, they are not only putting their lives at risk of sudden death, they’re putting every other person at the station on the same fast-track to hell.
While it seems obvious that you shouldn’t light a cigarette and suck on the slender cancer stick while filling up a car with gas, a lot of people ignore this bit of common sense and do it anyway. Fortunately, nearly everyone does not smoke while filling up their tank, but they always seem to be that one stupid person who decides to rebel against the wrong thing – and puts everyone else in harm’s way during the process of them asserting their independence from the common-sense of society.
The footage included here was gathered from Rumble and had more than 4.3 million play. People on the internet are obsessed with watching this guy who refuses to put out his hot cigarette as he fills his car’s tank with gas – and then gets taught a lesson from another customer who is not ready to die.
According to the Rumble description, this idiocy happened in Russia.
“The footage shot at Russia’s Gazprom gas station somewhere in Sofia, Bulgaria, shows the man driving up to the pump and getting out of the vehicle,” the Rumble description reads. “In a true CCTV fashion, the footage is blurry, but the one thing that can clearly be noticed is that the man seems to be arguing with someone off-camera. Then comes one of the station’s employees, grabs a big fire extinguisher, pops it open, and sprays the man in the face with it.”
The video’s description concludes with the following statement about how the person used a fire extinguisher to put out the Russian’s cigarette.
“it’s reasonable that this employee at the gas station got all-around miffed when a smoker declined to put out his cigar while pumping gas. As the video of the occurrence appears, it would appear that the orderly made the demand verbally; however, this brother just would not quit smoking. Nor would he, in any event, leave the gas tanks to complete his cigarette. Wow. Yes, he really did just put out that guy’s cigarette with a fire extinguisher! And let’s just say that the internet is loving this gas station vigilante!”
Smoking at a gas station is just a bad idea. Fortunately, this punk learned his lesson in a harmless – although intense – way. By getting a face-full of fire extinguisher solution, he learned that you really should not smoke a cigarette at a gas station unless you’re willing to get blasted like this.
What do you think about this moment of gas station justice?
