Poor fella, can't even remember getting gas let alone removing the pump.

The kid at the pump said it was his first day on the job. I'll bet it is his last day too.
Coincidence, my old (1996) GMC3/4T is that exact shade of blue. Love it!!

A bit of an evidence tell tale trail
Of a fuel fill up that did kinda fail
The fuel got entered but the hose stayed in place
And then the driver back home did quickly race
And the nozzle and hose will be up for bids at their next garage sale
I once observed a young summer student who filled up his school chums car and walked around to the drivers window and collected the money without removing the nozzle from the filler neck. The driver assumed that the transaction was complete and started the engine, put the car in gear and started to drive away - the nozzle stayed hooked inside the filler neck resulting in the hose giving the pump a good tug and rotating it about 90° on the base - not a pretty sight and kinda scary when I think back on it. Ah the 70's when common sense was considered safety training 101.

I was looking at the hoses lately, for no reason, and they have a break away unit in them.
