driver attached gas hose

Someone in Canada drove with a gas hose attached to their car and it was caught on video

A driver in British Columbia was likely having an off day when he accidentally drove off with the gas hose still attached to his car. 

It didn't take long for the driver to realize what he had done, and a video posted to Twitter earlier this week shows the end result: a car stopped just a few feet from the gas pump with the detached hose still plugged into his car. 

According to the Twitter user who posted the video, the incident occurred at a gas station at Richmond 5 and Bridgeport.

In the video, a man stands next to the stopped vehicle — presumably the driver — looking confused and shaken by what he just did. 

Many Twitter users have replied to the original video, and it turns out this Richmond driver isn't the only one to have made such a mistake. 

While others are simply marvelling at how something like this could happen in the first place.  

And some are using the opportunity to put their pun skills to the test. 

"What you’ve never seen a hose'n'go before?" one user teased

"He’s feeling 'ripped off,'" another joked
