A customer who went to a filling station to buy fuel was surprised when he saw a fuel attendant receiving a call while selling fuel to customers
Facing the fuel attendant was a caution sign which read "No Smoking, Switch Off Your Engine, Switch Off your Phone"
The customer who was surprised to see the fuel attendant disregarding the caution video recorded the incident and posted it online.
The video has since generated mixed reactions. Some persons who reacted to the video blasted the fuel attendant for the mistake which he made while others dragged the customer for recording the fuel attendant doing wrong instead of correcting him
Some people also argued that a phone is not capable of triggering an explosion in a gas station and that the belief that it can is only a myth
