    Anybody ever hit a gas meter and and knock it off? I did that today and it scared the crap out of me. The guy from the gas company pulls up and is smoking a cigarette in his truck. He was real cool about the whole thing.

    I had a customer do that once with a riding mower. They said the gas company acted like it was no big deal. I also had a neighbor have a terminiex guy drill a whole through the gas line and seemed to not care and just told the homeowner to just call the gas company.

    About 14 years ago, one of the guys I use to work with, ripped the meter off of the shop with a power rake.
