Is Gas Made of Matches?
While pumping gas this evening Maddox tried to open his door (which is on the gas pump side and therefore unable to open since the van is smart enough to lock the door while the gas “door” is open). I shouted through the window for him to stop. When I got back in the car I told him that it was dangerous to try to open the door while I was pumping gas. Of course, he wanted to know why…I told him that if the door had slid open and knocked the gas nozzle out of the tank it could have sprayed and caused a fire (a bit of a stretch, but I was trying to make a point). He asked why again…so, I said well, it’s flammable and makes it dangerous. His response….what, is gas made of matches? Ohhh man!!!! Good grief!!!!
