Everyone knows that it’s dangerous to smoke a cigarette while pumping gas, but one man learned his lesson the hard way.
A video recording shows a gas station attendant forced to use extreme measures to drive home the point that having a lit cigarette around a gas pump is not allowed. And, boy, did he make the point.
According to The Daily Wire, the video begins with a customer pulling up to the pump at a gas station in Sofia, Bulgaria.
A man, who was wearing a backward baseball hat, gets out of the passenger seat with a cigarette in his mouth. Another customer can be seen pulling into the gas pump on the other side at the same time. No one was ready for what happened next.
According to Mashable, when the young man got out of his car with a cigarette in his mouth, he could be seen arguing with someone off camera — apparently the gas station attendant telling him to extinguish the cigarette.
When the man apparently refused, the attendant decided to take matters into his own hands.
The attendant slowly appeared in the video, where he could be seen walking toward the gas pump the man pulled up next to.
With zero hesitation, the attendant removed a fire extinguisher from its holder and covered the man with the cigarette and part of the car with foam.

Because the man’s passenger-side door was open, the foam from the extinguisher went all over the inside and outside of the car.
Two other men can be seen exiting the vehicle after the foam and fumes began to fill the inside of the car.
Getting doused in foam from an extinguisher was a much better outcome than the man’s cigarette potentially igniting and blowing up the gas pump.
More important than that, his foolish decision could have also placed the individual on the other side of the pump in danger because he refused to put out his cigarette.
Smoking can be hazardous to your health, of course, but it’s not always cancer that causes the problem.
You just can’t fix stupid.
