This happened to me last week, and I am not sure how I should have handled it.
I am pumping gas and a truck pulls up on the other side of the gas pump I am using. The woman is driving, and the man gets out to pump the gas. The woman's window is rolled down and she lights up a cigarette and smokes it there, 3 feet from the gas pump, dumping ashes out the window. I am on the other side of the pump from her, probably 5 or 6 feet away. My kids are in the car and I am standing there pumping gas, smelling the gas fumes, watching her smoke and reading the NO SMOKING signs posted everywhere.
I don't want to tell anyone what they should do, but I also don't want me and my kids to get blown up. Where is the line between respect of others privacy and self-preservation?
What would you have done?
