    Default What the

    on my way to work tonight I stopped to fuel up my truck and while I was standing there I heard something that sounded like a spark of electricity. I spun around to see what was going on and there was two young girls one was pumping gas in the car and the other was sitting side ways in the drivers seat with the door open pointing a tazer at the girl pumping the gas and pressing the button! I about had a heart attack right there! These girls were maybe 20 years old or less so I said Miss do you realize that you could blow us all up killing your friend and possibly many more people because gas fumes will ignite and set your world on fire. Now in my defense I was a little firm but I was not yelling and this young girl looks at me and says HEY OLD MAN MIND YOUR ON BUSINESS. I ain't gonna lie at that point I began to yelling and I hard my pump kicked off and I quickly got in my truck and left. What are the kids of today being taught where is the common sense? whew thanks for letting me vent.

    Common sense is a forgotten art. Few have it and those that do are the real geniuses. I tried hard to instill it into my kids as common sense is just basic logical reasoning. So far so good. They have their moments but. . . . . for the most part they think about their actions.

    These kids today.....lol.
    At least she was able to formulate a complete sentence that conveyed what she felt, as opposed to just "ok, boomer" or something.
    The universe has a way of making people like her not last very long. The secret is to not be standing too close to them ever.

    Common sense and common courtesy, both ironically named in todays society. It's been handily replaced by a blinding overabundance of political correctness and entitlement. If I were her dad I would have her standing before you apologizing for back chatting. At least they didn't have a gun haha.

    Yeah, I've seen young girls filling their car's gas tank with one hand and holding a cigarette in the other hand. I left as soon as possible.

    So Tip and I pull into the gas station on Tweeks. A couple little kids across the fuel island were outside their parents van tossing party poppers onto the pavement and enjoying watching them go BANG as the poppers hit the pavement.. I walked over calmly and explained to them what kind of issues could prevail should one of the sparks from a popper ignite some gas fumes.. One of the parents corrected me for correcting their off spring..

    I wish their Dad had been there I would have addressed him instead of her. when I started to talk to her I thought what if she comes at me with that thing but I had my hand in my pocket just incase but then I would have had to prove self defense and that would have been an uphill battle. Glad it worked out and nothing more happened.

    My wife and I went on an air boat ride in the FL Everglades about 10 yrs ago. The boat engine kept spitting and sputtering and then cut off. The dipstick driving the boat drained the fuel filter on top of the black battery that had been sitting in the sun with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and then hit the start switch. That battery was very hot from being in the sun and the gas was evaporating quickly. One spark from the battery or that cigarette and the boat would have gone up in flames. I told my wife to get ready to jump overboard. Luckily there was no fire. I told the guy about it when we got back but I'm afraid I didn't make much of an impression. I was too nice I suppose. He claimed he could put out his cigarette in an open container of gas. I didn't ask for a demonstration for proof. If I remember correctly, it was Coopertown on highway 41 across southern FL.

    Your next comment should have been WERE MY LIFE AND THIS ENTIRE BLOCK IS CONCERNED IT d@@ WELL IS MY BUSINESS. and under the circumstance angry yelling would have been more than permissible considering you were still alive and well enough to be able too. There is a reason why fuel trucks ground there units while loading an unloading fuel in order to prevent static spark.
