Woman Sets Fire to Car of Man Who Refused Her a Cigarette

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Israel Police arrested a young woman who caused a fire in a Jerusalem gas station after a driver refused to give her a cigarette.


The woman was at the Paz Gas station on Derech Bethlehem in Jerusalem on Tuesday. A security camera depicts her approaching a man filling his car`s gas tank.

She allegedly asked him for a cigarette, and he said no. Then she pulled a lighter out of her pocket and lit the handle of the fuel pump, which immediately caught fire."


In Israel you are prepared for mayhem to erupt at any time, but you expect a terrorist to be behind the chaos, not a citizen who was upset because a man wouldn`t give her a cigarette.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and hell hath no fury like a nicotine addict denied a cigarette. When you set a car on fire because a stranger won`t give you a cigarette, it`s time to start wearing a nicotine patch.

Fortunately, the gas station employees were able to put out the fire, and the nicotine fiend was arrested by the police.
