Smoking can be dangerous to your tires

We are still laughing about this one this morning. A customer came in with a flat tire to be repaired. We discovered that a cigarette had punctured his tire.

It was actually one of those fake cigarettes, that has a metal body. Here is a pic of it.

I've seen lot's of things in tires, but this is a first. Even using fake cigarettes is dangerous.

I just threw some salt over my shoulder for good luck. Ended up smashing a mirror with the salt shaker.

Looks like it is one of those e-cigarettes that is supposed to help you quit smoking.

I am sure a new user "Flipped it out the window" before he realized what his "muscle memory" did!
