Re: Shell issues warning about static electricity
Actually this is true. I actually work in a Shell servo where it happened here in SA. It's been 2 weeks since the "event" and there's still "not in use" signs on the pump as it is subject to investigation.
I know this sounds mean, but most customers are fricking stupid about the dangers involved in filling up. This particular person did the trick of getting back into the car, and also had a phone on in thier pocket. When we confront people about notputting petrol in non-approved containers, talking on mobiles, getting back into the car, not letting little billy under 16 fill the car, these people go bunta.
So if they want to be darwin candidates then so be it.
