The Race

Two gas men were out checking meters in a residential neighborhood one day.
They parked the truck at the end of the street and worked their way up the

At the last house, a woman watched from her kitchen window as they checked
her meter.

Finally finishing their work, the older man, a supervisor, challenged the
younger man, his trainee, to a race back to their truck, wanting to prove
that an older man could still beat a younger man.

They raced back to the truck, with the supervisor holding a lead, when they
noticed that the woman from the last house was racing up behind them. They
stopped until she caught up and asked what was wrong.

As she gasped for breath, she said,

"When I saw you two gas men running as hard as you could, I figured I'd
better run too!"
