An Open Letter to the Lady Smoking at the Gas Station:
Have you ever read the warnings when you are pumping gas? The very first one is "No smoking or open flames." Have you ever wondered why they put that on everything around a gas station? It is that gas is highly flammable and is likely to EXPLODE!
I have worked very hard to attain my very boring life. I have two kids that like having me for a mother, and a husband that likes having me as a wife. I also have 20+ relatives that kind of enjoy having me in their life, and that is just my car. There were five other cars at the pumps at what could easily have been at ground zero.
Perhaps you could wait the five minutes it takes to pump your gas to light a new cigarette. I know I would really appreciate not getting on the front page of the paper or the headline story on the news tonight.
Thank you for your consideration.
