When some douche stubbornly refused to put out his cigarette while pumping gas, one employee of the station went to extreme lengths to show him that it it is not cool to smoke so close to the gas pump.
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. 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. What happened?
According to a post on Reddit with an accompanying GIF, the customer refused to put his cigarette out, even after he was asked to do so by the attendant. The employee decided to take matters into his own hands by grabbing the fire extinguisher and spraying the man down. Nothing like a good show-and-tell to teach kids about things that can definitely go wrong!
The warnings against smoking next to gas stations should always be heeded. In 2013, a Georgia man faced charges of reckless conduct after the action of flicking a cigarette lighter close to his gas tank ignited a fire that “severely injured” his wife, according to authorities.
