Do I Smell Gas?
Two gas company servicemen, a training supervisor and a young
trainee, were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood.
They parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked their
way to the other end. At the last house a woman looking out
her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her
gas meter. Finishing the meter check, the supervisor challenged
his younger co-worker to a footrace down the alley back to the
truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one.
As they came running up to the truck, they realized the
lady from the last house was huffing and puffing right
behind them. Naturally, they stopped and asked
her what was wrong.
Gasping for breath, she replied, "When I see two gas
men running as hard as you two were, I just knew I'd
better run too!"
