I once left £100 in a cashpoint after receving a phone call. I feel your pain and it can happen to the best of us.
You aren't supposed to be on your cell at the gas station anyway. You sooo deserved it!
That's not The only reason you're not supposed to talk on a cell at a gas station. It causes a distraction and that's where things go wrong. For example chatting on the phone and you need a pen so while you're pumping you decide to sit in the car while its pumping (now worst case scenario) you don't notice the auto shut off valve is broken so it just keeps pumping and it over fills the car. When You FINALLY notice, you jump out of the car (without discharging the static electricity from the seat in the car). As you're about to grab the nozzle a static charge is created and boom, now there's a fire. Now I know this IS extreme, all I'm saying is talking on a cell phone is still hazardous because it takes our attention away from the task at hand. Which in this case can be very dangerous.
