Man Tries To Kill Spider With Fire While Filling His Car With Flammable Liquid

Man Tries To Kill Spider With Fire While Filling His Car With Flammable Liquid

There’s a long list of ‘don’ts’ in petrol stations: Don’t leave your engine on, don’t use your phone – and definitely don’t try to kill a spider with fire.

While the latter sounds like an urban myth, it actually happened recently when a Detroit man took offence to an arachnid lounging on his car.

In one swift move, he snatched a lighter from his pocket and set fire to the spider – and his car.

And in a move even stupider than setting fire to the spider in the first place, he then jumped into his burning car and drove off, leaving the petrol pump engulfed in smoke and flames.
