Attack of the Orange Shirts

This morning 8:30ish, a guy in a bright orange shirt shows up and says he's from the water company. Doesn't say anything else, but responds in the affirmative when I ask if he's there to read the meter. Turns out he's not there to read the meter, but to do something to the meter. When I ask if this would involve turning off the water, he says yes and asks if thats a problem. Yeah, at 8:30 am, with no notice, thats likely to be a problem. Also have to ask about three times how long the thing he needs to do will take, so I can figure out when a good time for someone to come back will be.

About half an hour later, a guy in a bright orange shirt shows up to read the gas meter. Thankfully uneventful.

So, around lunch time, since its a nice day, I head to a nearby park to eat and do some reading. I'm not there long when a landscaping crew shows up, all wearing bright orange shirts. They were nice, and assured me I didn't have to leave, but between grass pollen and loud equipment, I was out of there.

Heres hoping that's it for the day.
