Tasered at the gas station???

#1 Unread post by sunshine229 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 7:33 pm

So... I was fuelling up the car a while back at our local station on my way home from work. This guy walked up to me carrying a small box of "something" for sale. He looked like a nice enough guy - young and clean and had excellent manners. He put his box down and showed me the "something" he was selling. He started by telling me the importance, especially as a woman, of carrying a flashlight and some personal protection. He showed me this thing that was a small black plastic box (about the size of a pack of cigarettes). It had a simple light on the end which works like a flashlight. He then said... "and for your protection, it's also a taser!" and he gave me a demonstration of this taser (in the air) right in front of me! Then he tried to hand it to me to give it a try and I said, "uhhh... my hands are kind of busy right now - i'm filling my gas tank!" Did he not even realise what he just did? HEEEELLLLLOOOO - gas fumes and spark!!!!!!!!!

Yep, we've grown accustomed to this type of stupidity every day. The real problem is these people probably vote.

Thank you guys for finally saying something, I thought I was going crazy, thinking that I was the only one dumbfounded by this! Well, no I didn't buy one, I didn't even touch it. I am too freaked out about things like that, LOL! :shock:

Not surprised. My friend brandon won a talent contest in college with a taser. He insisted on going last. Stood on the stage. Lit it up a few times for good effect, put it to his chest and yelled "God Bless America" before tasering the hell out of himself. After flopping around on the floor like a fish for awhile he just stopped moving. Then maybe 5 seconds into the stunned silence he thrust his fist into the air.

He won with a huge margin for tasering himself....

This meme always reminds me of it.
