Michigan Motorist kills spider with lighter at gas station; chaos ensues

A Michigan motorist with a massive fear of spiders, nearly blowed up an entire gas station when he used a cigarette lighter to kill a spider.

spider at the gas stationHe told authorities he spotted a spider on his gas tank and pulled out his lighter to get rid of it, the station said.

His fear of spiders must’ve stopped his decision making abilities, because you probably shouldn’t use a lighter anywhere near a gas station – not even for spiders.  His brain did work a little bit when he pressed the emergency stop button, so let’s be thankful for that. The fire only damaged the pump, his car, and probably made the man scared of fires now too.

How would you feel if you were there and saw a gas pump light on fire?

He filled up at the same station the next day.

He may want to lay low for a while.
