Gas pumps, and people who ignore them
I was waiting in line at the gas station and watched some lady'* Honda SUV in the next lane. She had the pump filling her tank, but while she was watching the numbers, her tank overflowed but the pump kept going. Gas was shooting out everywhere, and despite everyone yelling and honking at her, it was a good 15-20 seconds before she finally turned around and saw the mess. She ran over and released the trigger, then took a napkin and closed her gas cap before quickly driving off. The attendant went behind her and put some cones down to block that lane.
That raises a question I've always wondered: what causes the gas pump to shut off when the tank fills? Fuel tank pressure?
