Why, for fuck’s sake, do water and gas companies schedule work to be done at the most inopportune times?
A couple weeks ago, I was in the shower getting ready to go to work and the water company shut the water off to install a new meter. (Do NOT get me started on that, because ever since they installed the meter my water pressure has been all over the place.)
Then, yesterday, the gas company sent a guy out to install a new gas meter. When did they send him? At around 10 minutes to 9, just when I’m trying to get out the door to go to work.
Now, general consensus is that most people ’round these parts don’t work for a living, so companies don’t concern themselves with when they should schedule works to be carried out. Well, I’m sorry, but I don’t fucking sit around all day just waiting for my door buzzer to go off. I have a job, thanks.
