WTF was he thinking?

It ain't bad enough he was smoking (please don't start the anti-smoking diatribe) but for crying out loud, that's the GAS meter!

I won't mention the fact it took 9 units, 23 firefighters all of 12 minutes to extinguish the "blaze". 'Course they managed to do $10K worth of damage in that time. Slow day in the Old Pueblo I guess. Hell, 23 firefighters coulda pee'ed on the fire and put it out in 12 minutes.

How can you not start a anti smoking diatribe? You see people throwing cigarets all the time. This idiot thew it in the wrong place and it cost him. Perhaps he will learn his lesson. Probably not.

Yeah but this was a one in a million occurrence - how many times had this not happened? Statistically he can carry on as before; what are the chances it will happen again...
