So I was stopped at the Squamish Chevron last monday filling my tank, and yes (please keep the gasping to a minimum) talking on a cellular telephone!
I know what you're thinking; he's insane and suicidal! Thats certainly what the guy stopped next to me thought as he yelled at me to shut off my damn phone! "Its fine if you wanna blow yourself up, but not when there are other people around you!"
Do you honestly think I would be sitting on top of an open gas tank, holding a running nozzle attached to a pump not 2 feet from me if there was the slightest chance of an explosion? ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!
I think this whole overly-paranoid, safety-nazi culture is beginning to piss me off. I obviously can't use it while I'm riding, so where else am I going to get the opportunity to return my booty-call's voicemail? COME ON!
On the plus side, I do have his blessing if I wanna blow myself up! SCORE!
btw, did anyone even see that Mythbusters episode?
