Two gas servicemen, a senior supervisor and a young trainee, were out reading meters. They parked their truck at the end of an alley working their way to the other end. At the last house, a woman looking out her kitchen window noticed the men as they read her meter.
Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged the younger trainee to a race back to the truck to prove that an older person could outrun a younger one.
As they approached the truck, they realized the woman from the last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped and asked her what was wrong.
Gasping for breath, she replied "When I saw two men from the gas company running as hard as you two were away from my house, I figured I better run too!"
Just reminded me of that T-shirt that says "I'm a bomb specialist, if you see me running, try to keep up".
