It’s a miracle the thing didn’t blow up.
There are things that you shouldn’t do around a gas station, which include talking on your phone, keeping your car running and leaving the pump running with the vehicle unattended. Then there are things that you really shouldn’t do like playing with fire, which is almost self-explanatory. Apparently, this genius from Detroit, Michigan, decided to kill a spider with a lighter after filling up. Miraculously, no one was hurt during the incident, but the gas pump was destroyed and we suspect that the tiny arachnid burnt to a crisp.
Next time, if you want to kill a bug near a gas station try using a massive flamethrower.
