The One Handed Man & His Propane Tank

I stopped off at the gas station today and was approached by a guy who asked me “Do you have a wrench so I can crack this thing open so I can fill it over there?” as his indicated his propane tank to me which appeared to have what I can only fathom was some kind of heater attachment on it.

I took one look at him, noticed that he was missing his right hand from about mid-forearm, and thought better of the idea of lending him the wrench that I actually did have in the back of the KJ, while I stood around waiting for him to possibly lose his other one.

Lucky, the attendant came out at that moment with one, and I managed to take off, just as he was about to “crack it open”.
