Florida Man Fills The Back Of His Hummer Up With Gas Cans, Lights Cigarette, And… BOOM

You don’t know anxiety until you see somebody light a cigarette at a gas station pump.

And with all of the issues going on with gas here in the southeast, this is not the kind of anxiety people need right now.

However, according to Citrus County Chronicle, one Citrus County, Florida, man decided he needed to knock off the edge and light a cigarette as he drive away from the local Texaco station… with four 5-gallon gas cans in the back of his truck.

Yep, he got into his Hummer, lit himself a little cowboy killer, and poof…

The Hummer lit up faster than a junkie’s spoon.

I mean seriously, what was the guy thinking? Filling your truck up gasoline and then sparking a light? How can anyone possibly be that stupid?

And oh course, this happened in Florida. Beautiful state, beautiful beaches, of course you got Disney World down there… but every damn story on the internet comes out of Florida. Every damn one. Florida Man, you never cease to amaze me.

But on the bright side, he won’t have to worry about the gas shortage anymore…

Government Warns Not To Fill Plastic Bags With Gasoline Because People Are Idiots

It seems gas isn’t the only thing we’re experiencing a shortage of these days. Apparently a lot of people are missing some common sense too.

After a cyberattack shut down the Colonial Pipeline and disrupted the supply of gasoline to the south and the east coast, gas stations across the area are running out of gas and Americans started doing what Americans always do when they hear there’s a shortage of something:

Panic buying.

Pictures and videos have already started popping up from around the southeast of people hoarding gas – even in states where the supply isn’t impacted by the Colonial Pipeline outage.

Now, some are just showing up to the pump with a car full of gas cans, which is an asshole move on its own because it’s shit like this that creates shortages in the first place.

But some people are taking it to a whole new level, filling up plastic barrels.

Or farm water tanks.

Or trash cans.

Or even plastic storage bins.

But as if these aren’t bad enough, a video started making its rounds of a woman filling up PLASTIC BAGS full of gas.

Don’t put gas in plastic bags.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission went on to explain the danger of gas igniting when it’s stored in unapproved containers, because this is apparently a thing that we need to warn people about right now.

And with the way people are acting right now, it’s probably best to just put out a gentle reminder anyway: Don’t be like this lady.
