Two gas company servicemen, a senior training supervisor and a young trainee, were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked their way to the other end. At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter.
Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger coworker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one.
As they came running up to the truck, they realized the lady from that last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped and asked her what was wrong.
Gasping for breath, she replied, "When I see two gas men running as hard as you two were, I figured I'd better run too!"

A decrepit old gas man named Peter
While hunting around for the meter
His torch he did light
He arose out of sight
And, of course, as a result, he totally, completely and utterly destroyed the meter!
A gas company training supervisor and his young trainee had parked their truck at the end of the street while they proceeded to check the meters at each house. When they reached the last house, they noticed a woman watching them from her window as they checked her gas meter. When they had finished the meter check, the supervisor challenged his trainee to a race back to the truck.
As they were running up to the truck they noticed the woman from the last house was running right behind them, huffing and puffing. They stopped and asked her what was wrong.
As she gasped for breath, she replied, "When I saw two gas men running as hard as you two were, I thought I'd better run too."
