Meters (2)

Professional, with decades on the job,
the contractor described himself to me.
I overlooked him looking like a slob
and took him at his word, initially.
But when he turned to gas utility,
he didn’t know that mine was piped exempt.
I had to after-teach to make him see.
I’m now relighting pilots with contempt.
