Two gas company servicemen, a senior supervisor and a young trainee,
were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They parked their
truck at the end of a block and worked their way to the other end. At
the last house an older woman was looking out her kitchen window
watching the two men as they checked her gas meter.

Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger
co-worker to a foot race down the block 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 that 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 figure I'd better run too!"
