PsiChick: Rich Cream: PsiChick: The Pakistani meter guy?

Nah, the other guy. Roof-off guy.

...Yes. That's my point. The first guys...who knows, the second guy definitely was full of it, but the third was probably not, because some places still do check meters manually. I'd imagine he's probably not actually from Pakistan, either, 'Paki' is an old slang term for anyone from India\Pakistan\that general area (I don't know most of the country names).

Well for that comment I'm not sharing my take with you.

GBB: WTF language do these people speak??

City officials say their enormously high utility bill is due to a malfunctioning meter, but every time they send a repairman out, he is menaced by a crazy old lady swinging a shovel.
