I was driving home from swapping over my co2
cylinder for a new full one. I stopped at a roundabout, waiting for the traffic to clear so I could go.
.......and as I'm waiting *BANG*. It was the loudest sound I have ever heard... The cylinder popped and depressurised gas sprewed into the car's cabin. I could feel the change in the air immediately.
Got myself and the cylinder out of the car and put it on the footpath. By now a queue of cars were behind me so I got the car out of the way. Cylinder stops expelling gas.
I drove home and (slightly embarrased to admit it now) burst into tears. I was so shaken up that Hubby had to drive us both back to the shop to show them the cylinder and tell them what had happened.
He said he'd never heard of that hapeening. He guessed the valve must have been faulty. the guy gave me a new cylinder and a credit for the next one.
Got home and poured myself a whiskey.
Seriously, the things I go through for this hobby.
