If you were looking for a sign that all those warnings at the gas pump mean something, well, here’s your sign.
The dunce cap of the day goes to a driver in Australia, who flicked his lighter as he filled his car with gas last week. Turns out the lighter worked.
Footage captured by a security camera shows flames shoot up and lick the man before spilling onto the concrete below him — just feet from the pump.
He flees, leaving everyone else at the station in danger.
Just seconds later, a quick-thinking doctor jumps to the man’s aid and douses the flames with a bucket of water.
