Why should they bother when they can just strong arm your ass?

I asked Old Sarge what the procedure was down here. He says the city (him) leaves three notices ON THE DOOR that a meter needs to be changed. If there is no response after that, they will either leave the notice you received, or, if it's an asshole, just shut the water off. Did the city have any explanation why this was the first you heard about it?

I was in no way implying you are an asshole, BTW.

Why am I seeing Ernestine sitting at the telephone switchboard saying... We don't care. We don't have to. We're the Phone Company.

You see to be suffering from some strange delusions that these people work for you. They're the government and they answer to NO MAN. And you "own your property." Yeah, right. You just go ahead and keep thinking that.

It's the government. Shut up and obey or suffer the consequences.
