    Car running and talking on cell phone beside the pump.

    I bet the insurance company says "Claim Denied".

    That's why I drive diesel. I can talk on the phone, keep the car warm, and pump fuel at the same time. Does it matter that the people on all the other pumps around me are pumping gas?

    Re: Big No NO

    Last night I got gas, with the car running, while talking on my phone, smoking a marl., drinking a fifth of JD, and wearing a wool skull cap. Besides my DUI, the he only thing I got was a full tank of gas, and the phone number of some hot chic filling her tank next to me.

    Re: Big No NO

    No way a cell phone does that, more likely he got a static charge from sliding out of his car and then discharged it when he reached for his gas tank.

    It was actually busted and then re-busted in a later episode.
