Mistakes happen to everyone, but some can be costlier than others. A fisherman in New South Wales, Australia, found this out the hard way when he filled up his boat the wrong way with 231 liters of fuel, costing him $536.76.
The mistake occurred when he thought a fishing rod holder on the boat led to the petrol tank and ended up pumping the fuel into it. The error was captured on video and posted on a popular Facebook page, “Fishing Sydney.”
The video shows the fuel pouring out of the boat and onto the concrete, with the person taking the video warning others not to make the same mistake.
Despite the warning, many Facebook users have commented that the mistake is actually more common than people think and that they have even made the same error themselves.
The video has caused a stir online, with some users being critical of the “stupid” mistake, while others have come to the fisherman’s defense.
Regardless, the incident serves as a reminder to always double-check before filling up any kind of vehicle, as even a small mistake can lead to big consequences.
The fisherman in this case ended up paying a hefty price.
It’s important to always take caution and follow proper procedures, especially when handling fuel and other potentially dangerous materials.
