Watching on my phone I didn't see it either. But I could rewind. Is that some sort of loading dock?

And why the hell would that lady ask about the candle supply at a time like that?

Yep, loading dock.

And, in answer to your second question, because Alabama.

Candles are dangerous. Not only do they cause house fires, they now contribute to car crashes.

Glatt, freeze at 14 seconds and you can see what must be an Alabama loading dock.

How embarrassing.

Generally, the hoses at UK petrol stations are long enough to stretch to the far side of the vehicle, so ending up at the 'wrong' side shouldn't cause a problem.

Pumps at my local Tesco...

Often true here too, but you have to pull in a little closer to the pump.

I stopped for gas on the Jersey Pike where you can't pump your own. The lines for the right side of the pumps were much longer as more cars(and mine) have the filler on the left. The attendants on the left side were waving people from the right side line to come to the dark side, then dragging the hose over the trunk lid or roof. Fuck that, I refused.

Most cars here have a symbol on the gas gage to tell you which side the filler is on.

Never having borne arms in defence of the realm, it's perhaps unfair of me to brand this chap as IoTD, but I'm going to anyway.

Quote:
A French police sniper has accidentally shot and injured two people during a speech by President Francois Hollande in western France.

The shot was fired as the officer moved position on a roof about 100m (328ft) from a tent where Mr Hollande was speaking in the town of Villognon.

The bullet went through the canvas of the tent, where drinks were being made. It passed through a waiter's thigh and lodged in another person's calf.

The injuries were not life-threatening.
BBC Link.

The speech is in French but the 'bang' will be readily understood in any language.

As some wag observed on another forum:

Quote:
The French Government immediately raised their threat level from "Run" to "Hide."

The only higher threat level being "Collaborate."
