Pink's Husbo Told Off For Using Mobile At Petrol Station

Pink’s husband has called Australia out for having “serious scare tactics” in a recent video post on Instagram.

Carey Hart is still in the country with his pop superstar wife and their kiddo while she continues to wow Aussie audiences with her Beautiful Trauma tour.

He said he had “just got into an argument” with a woman at a petrol station in Brisbane.

“She told me that I was putting everyone’s life in danger my using my phone at the gas pump,” he wrote in the caption of the video where Hart silently mouthed the phrase ‘what the f*ck’.

“That if I had the light turned on, accidentally dropped it, the phone would light the fumes, the station would blow up, and kill all of us.

“What the hell is wrong with people?????? You got some serious scare tactics over here lol.”

Thing is, there are signs all over our petrol stations saying that using mobiles while filling up is a straight-up no-no.

On Wednesday, Paul & Lise had different thoughts on why.

“My understanding is that it’s dangerous because it can do something to the petrol,” Paul said.

“No,” Lise said. “I thought you just exploded… I thought the phone would blow up.”

Paul then said he thought the phone would give a signal to the petrol pump, blowing up the petrol pump and, in turn, blowing up the person pumping petrol.

“But I thought something blew up.”

Lise wondered if Hart was right, that perhaps Australia has been given a line about mobile phone usage at petrol stations.

“Or is it actually dangerous to have your mobile phone outside of the car as you’re pumping petrol?”

She also wondered if it was dangerous to simply hold your mobile while pumping petrol.

“Yeah, well there’s a sign,” Paul argued. “Like the Ghostbusters sign with the little cross through it.”

Lise then admitted she has had a mobile in her hand while filling up “because you have it in your hand, you take your wallet and your mobile phone; you’re pumping petrol,” when her daughter pointed directly to the sign and said “Mum, uh-uh, you’ve got your phone”.

“You’re gonna blow up,” Paul said.

“Do they have different petrol in America, so you’re allowed to do it there?” he added.

So, we opened the phones for a round of Fact or Fiction…

Brent from Rockingham said how can it be fact when you can pay with your phone at the fuel station but Leanne from Ellenbrook said it was actually fact, recalling the time she managed a BP a few years ago.

So, what’s the go, is Hart right or, you know, rules that are used across the board at all Australian petrol stations?
