Wow! Only in California..!!!
« on: June 26, 2017, 02:49:36 PM »
You will not believe what just happened. I pulled in a gas station, to get gas, and when I got out I noticed two Police Officers watching a woman who was smoking while pumping gas.
I saw her and thought, "Is this lady crazy or just stupid?!?!
With the police right there, too?!"

Anyway, as I was paying inside, I heard screaming.
I looked and the woman's arm was on fire!
She was swinging her arm and running around trying to extinguish the fire!
I ran outside and the officers had put her on the ground and were putting the fire out with their coffees!!
Then they put handcuffs on her and threw her in the police car.
I was thinking, "What kind of dummy smokes near a gas pump?!"
Curiosity got the best of me so I asked the officers what they were arresting her for.

The officers looked me square in the eyes and said...
"WAVING A FIREARM!"

Um, hah, hah, hah?

It was a joke, right? A pun?

Trouble is, I've actually seen people do this! In both Washington and California!
When I have seen it before beginning to buy gas, I just have left before starting to pump.
But when it happens in mid-pump, I quickly go short on the gas, finish up, and get the heck outta there.

Scary!
