That’s What You Get For Smoking Next To Gas Pump In Bulgaria

Smoking directly next to a fuel pump is never a good idea and if you do it, you probably deserve a Darwin Award.

In Bulgaria recently, the passenger of an Opel Astra thought it’d be alright to continue smoking as he pulled up next to a pump. Before long, security camera footage shows a gas station worker coming into view, desperately trying to convince the man to stop smoking.

However, a Carscoops reader tells us that the passenger refused, prompting the worker to unhook a fire extinguisher and spray the passenger to avert a catastrophe.

Despite the worker potentially saving his life, the smoker doesn’t seem all that happy with the worker’s actions, getting into a fierce argument with him shortly after.

Local media publications swiftly caught on to the story with Zapernik reporting that police have launched an investigation into the incident.

    I’d do the same thing if the guy was vaping.

    In Bulgaria, extinguisher smokes you.

    Good. Should’ve unloaded that entire extinguisher into them and then go for a second one.

    I live in Munich and it’s mind-blowing how many FRIGGING MORONS will smoke at a gas station.

    Just the other night I was filling up my car when three cigarette-smoking teenage girls walked past me and my car (just as I was grabbing the gas pump handle about to fuel up my ride) towards the gas station shop where they continued to smoke for a few more minutes, then throw their cigarettes on the floor and then walked inside the shop, presumably to purchase more cancer sticks.

    A few months ago I remember one guy filling up his car in front of me and while he was waiting for his car to fill up and lit himself a cigarette. I meant WTF!? *Facepalm*

    Guess that stuff really is addicting…

      It is and the habit is really hard to kick as well. I’ve been around enough smokers to know I will never do it myself.

    That car is totaled. The powder destroys anything electric in it.

    But well deserved 🙂
