Hold onto the nozzle!!!

Hey guys,
When you go to the petrol station to fill up your petrol tank, do you hold onto the nozzle while it fills up or do you just set it there; and put it on the automatic latch thingy?
Well, if you belong to the latter category, do be careful.
I received a mail about this real-life experience of someone recently who patronized a petrol station in PJ.
He put it in auto mode for it to fill up and all of a sudden, the nozzle flew out of the tank opening with the petrol spewing at full speed!!!
Needless to say, he was drenched in petrol all over and worse still, he even got them on his eyes and face!!!
Imagine the pain...he was escorted to the restroom immediately to rinse it off.
They reported the incident to the staff and asked to see the manager; demanding an explanation.
And the manager actually refused the request!!! He only asked his staff to accompany them to the hospital!! Mean....
Well, according to the staff, this was not the first occurrence....it has happened before. But this was the worst lar....

The top layer of the right eye was damaged (dunno to what extent) and the area around his eye was burnt!!
He had the eye bandaged for 10 days!!!
Poor fella!!

All this due to the nozzle which was lighter than of the standard one; and the speed far surpassed it....
sad case huh...if you are freaked out by this...take note to hold onto the nozzle ya!!!
Be careful!!
