My husband got mad at me today for turning off the car before he refilled it.. 
Apparently I was being a smart ass know it all for aguing with him about it.

I was raised that it is dangerous, and there are flippin warnings all over the damn pump!

isnt it just common sense

especially when your kids are in the car?  

...I mean who argues about this crap?!

There is a sign at the gas station that tells you to shut your engine off.

I know that mythbusters debunked the myth that the car will explode if left on while gassing up.  I'm still not comfortable with it so we always turn our car off.  My brother in law doesn't like his kids to sit in a hot car while he puts gas in during the summer, so he'll leave it on.  I tell him to roll the freakin windows down for the 5 min it takes.  They're 8 & 11, so they'll be fine with no AC for a bit.
