Default How NOT to pump gas!

and they say stupid blond jokes dont have any truth to them check this one out! LMFAO!
it looks like another case of a static electricity spark, but at least the nozzle had shut off so she wouldnt have sprayed flamming gas all over the place.

Look at that sweater. That'* what caused it. You never get back in the car when pumping.

you can, you just have to touch something metal (other than the pump handle!) to discharge the static

She might be dumb. I never realized you needed to push so many buttons to get fuel.
