I'm surprised nobody tried to help her. Explaining how electric cars work. She could have blown up that entire gas station.

"She's gonna do it, man!"

Sure its funny now.  It wasn't so amusing back in the switch from horses to gasoline.

Back in 1971 I was working at a Sunoco Station in Shelburne Falls, MA for the summer.  Guy pulls is (full service back then) and hands me a can of "oil."  I assume he wants me to put it in the crankcase.

When I go to open his hood he goes nuts, jumps out of the car and starts screaming at me "are you stupid?"  Apparently I was.

The car was a Saab (and apparently pretty old).  It was oil meant to be mixed with the gas as this was a two-stroke engine (like a car powered by a chainsaw engine).

Learn something new everyday.

Also, LOTS of inbred people live in Western Massachusetts.

It's the mini Chun Li buns that make this hilarious to me.

I'm absolutely certain that the person cackling like a hyena on his own video isn't a monstrous asshole in real life.

Yep, that laughter was contagious, thanks subby!

And I thought *my* laugh was annoying.

Buuurnnn, he got her so good and then posted her stupidity on the internet for a bunch of strangers to enjoy Buuuurrnnn.

But as he said in a later post it isnt mean spirited to secretly video tape and laugh at a stranger instead of just offering to help them.

Are you suggesting one should maybe step out of one's car, approach the poor woman, and offer assistance? I could see that.

But if she comes back and tries to do it again *after* it's explained....

What, and get tazered or shot because I'm a scary looking old guy?

It's surprising what people don't know. Didn't she notice that the car operated differently from any gas vehicle she's every driven?

I helped a middle-aged woman pump her gas a couple of years ago because she apparently had never done it before. She was looking at the instructions on the pump like they were in hieroglyphics. "Can you help me here?" "Sure. First of all, never use the yellow one. That's diesel."

No. We have a pandemic exploding in the US because of stupidity. I don't need to see minor league stupidity like someone unfamiliar with a car trying to put gas into it.

Further down in the tweet thread, there's a video where she gets helped.

To me, he sounds like a chip having an epileptic fit.

Evoked visions of Beavis and Butthead.

But yeah, still funny.

And think of the poor cars with hay thrown onto their engines.

This one made me laugh harder.


that narration is perfect!

laughed out loud at this one, too.

There's also an urban legend of a guy who was in jail when cars switched from turning a crank in the front to key-ignition start, and didn't know how to start the getaway vehicle that had been left for him.

/That said, I vaguely remember seeing something that said it was at least partly untrue.

I like how the guy who posted it one day ago said it was from a friend of his mom.

Sure, buddy

What's wrong with that?  She double bagged it!

Gotta wonder how she intends on getting it out of there and into whatever it's meant for.

Those are the part that just scream 'setup' to me. I'm not 100% sure this isn't some stupid prank video.

My wife ran out of gas a couple weeks ago so I took a gas can to the Arco in my Model 3.  First time and hopefully last time it ever parked at a pump and was used to deliver gasoline.

You know, if you look at the fuel gauge there is an arrow pointing to the side the tank is on.

Sheesh.

Drove a 1978 Caprice well into the 1990s. The gas pipe was situated behind the license plate. This led to the only Car Talk puzzler I could ever answer without waiting a week.

Watched a youtube video yesterday of a guy with a SUV where the spare is mounted on a swing-out bracket.. you have to swing it out of the way to open the tailgate / rear door.. he insisted on swinging the spare back in place before trying to close the back door.. it was funny and painful to watch.. we are doomed.....and yelling at the monitor didn't help...  he did open it......

You just reminded me of a Car Talk episode, the Fargo Farmer. Lady had bought a suburban or a truck from a farmer in Fargo, and it would randomly start itself. First time I heard the episode was long after it had originally aired, and I was driving around yelling at my radio "IT"S GOT A REMOTE STARTER WITH A TEMPERATURE SENSOR IN IT", having just installed one in my wife's car.

Also Pro-Tip: German cars all have the filler neck on the passenger side, it's German Law for safety if you run out on the side of the road.

Glad I'm not the only one that yells at the radio or monitor......  I fix things.  Heading to a service call, had the radio on, listening to a talk show on home repair..  heard a caller describe a breaker in his panel that tripped 4 seconds after resetting, and it hummed before tripping... and his AC wouldn't cool... yelled at the radio for a minute, then called the station, and told them to call the guy back and tell him he had a bad start capacitor in his AC outdoor unit...  heard the host relay the message..  Guess he got it fixed. Some things you just know.
