We had an issue a couple of days ago with our gas meter. It needed replaced.
They installed the new one yesterday morning, but evidently they couldn’t get us to answer the door. I was asleep and my mother, who lives with me, is elderly and hard of hearing and didn’t hear them either. So they couldn’t turn on the new meter.
It was just about a half-hour ago that Duke Energy sent out a repairman. Freddy was his name. After he got the new meter running, he had to get the pilot light on the water heater going and that’s way at the bottom of the heater and inside it. The poor guy just had one knee replaced and will undergo replacement surgery on the other soon.
He got everything going. I tried to give him a few dollars as a tip. He kindly refused it.
After that, he told me his wife is ill and needs a double lung transplant.
So if you all could say a prayer for who seems like a really honest, decent man and his wife who needs them badly, I would appreciate it.
