Checking Gas Meter
Two gas corporation service officer,a senior training chief and a young student trainee were out checking meters in a slums neighborhood. They parked their van at the end of the lane and worked their way to the other end.
At the last dwelling,a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter.
After finishing the meter check, the chief challenged his younger colleague to a foot race down the lane and 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 that last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. 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 figured I’d better run too!”
