    Default damn gas company

    Gas company has been sending me letters. zthey need to cpme in my house for a safety inspection. Meter is in the basement.

    I ignored them for awhile until I get a shutoff notice.

    My basement is mu reloading and gun room and I really don't want a stranger in there.

    I relent and they said between 8 and 4. I can't schedule a time.

    I burn my last vacation day to stay home and meet them.

    The pricks don't show.

    I am extremely pissed.

    Figure out the cost/value of your day - deduct it from your bill.

    DEMAND THEY RELOCATE THE METER TO OUTDOORS WITHOUT COSTS. If need to, complain ot the PUC. It's for THEIR convenience. I've done quite a few with PECO.

    All of mine have been outside, going back to when I was 3 years old (my parents still live there).

    Water meters have been mostly inside, due to weather, but they're all read electronically now.

    I doubt its about safety unless someone called in a gas smell, It more than likely they want to see if you fiddled with your meter, I have heard that a while back you could remove and reverse your meter and it would run backwards, not that I would do such a dangerous or illegal thing.

    That's easy to do with an electric meter.
