The National Grid Part 2, and a poll...

Hooray!-I managed to get a new appointment to have the meters put in and as soon as alternate side parking was over, I covered the gas-access plate in the street with my own car for safety. After 3 and 1/2 hours of waiting a fairly old, VERY Russian, service person shows up. At first I was entertained by his varied muttering, singing (in Russian ), and shouting, but then...It got weird.
It started with his insistence of standing within 2 inches of me at all times.
Then we discovered that my old stove, after the royal beating the contractors gave it, is having trouble lighting...but I didn't really need him to refer to it as a "piece of sh*t" that "maybe" came out of a museum.
And then (at the very end) when my non-english speaking plumber tried to ask him (in an admittedly confused way), if he should turn everything back off....He shouts (insert crazy Russian accent here): "Now is your problem! F*ck you!"
Hmmm. As far as I'm concerned, I'm the only one who has cause to curse out my contractors (and although it sometimes takes quite a bit of control-- I don't).
My question to you is: Report him, or let it go?
Quite unprofessional if you ask me.


  1. Report!! F**K that guy, you don't need shit from him!!!! i would be on that phone toot suite!

  2. Oh good! And as you're the only voter, you win! I will call tomorrow--I wanted to but wasn't sure if I was nuts. I just wish this kook didn't know where I live...
