Doofus Of The Day #300

We reach the triple-century mark in our Doofus Of The Day series with a Doofus caught on video.

Yep . . . that's Doofidity for you!

I'd say there is no reason the automakers couldn't put a hall effect switch on the gas door and a bug light on the dash, but that would only be aiding and abetting the dummies out there!

Not the first time, and probably won't be the last... sigh...

I had a friend that did that, sort of. She started to drive off, and the hose popped of the quick connect that attached to the pump. Realizing that loud noise wasn't supposed to happen, she stopped and discovered that she hadn't taken the handle out.

In her defense, she was not the only one in the vehicle, and her compatriot was "helping" and had distracted her. As she told me, she thought he had finished up and put the hose back, and he assumed she had.

She earned the nickname Ethyl, for some time thereafter.
