One stupid question.

Today, we were transporting lube oil in barrels to elsewhere on base.  I brought a FN along for any assistance I might have need of.  On he way out of the parking lot, he asks if he can smoke.  My first answer was no, it’s too easy to get caught.  A standard answer of mine.  A few seconds later another factoid enters my gray area.

“You do realize we’re transporting flammable liquid, right?”                          

Good thing I followed the rules about no smoking in a guvvy, before I even realized what was on the truck.
