You probably see it posted on the pumps, not to use your cell phone while pumping gas, but how many of you actually obey those warnings?

Only to post fuel prices, I have enough distractions, but I'm not afraid of a fuel explosion.

saying it's "stupid" and "illegal" is ignorant and uneducated. It is NOT illegal, and it is NOT stupid. Cell phone signals sparking a fire at a pump is an UNSUBSTANTIATED MYTH. Look it up on Snopes.com. What has caused fires is a static spark from the pump nozzle to the car. Of course if your cellphone battery heated up and exploded in your hand, that probably could start a fire. Think of all the people at the gas stations or driving past pumps using (not a good idea to drive and talk) phones! You would have to enforce a no cell phone bubble several hundred feet all around gas stations if this ridiculous idea were true.
