Physical Security At The Gas Pump

~or, Just Another Part of Living in Condition Yellow~

When pumping gas into your hot rod, do not put the fuel hose between you and the (unlocked, please) door of your car. If you need to get in the car in a hurry, that's a trip hazard (or a delay) waiting to bite you.

When looking for a new car, consider that if the fuel door is on the opposite side from the driver's door, that is one more thing you have working against you in a race to the driver's seat.

Not that it will necessarily ever matter, but you will be glad you were in the habit, if it ever did. . . .
