I suppose I should explain this sudden barrage of posts about being a meter reader for Public Service years ago.
Truth is, it’s Drew’s fault.
Drew has been a good friend for the last 10 years and he’s always been after to me to write down my stories about meter reading and to find old friends and interview them and get their stories, too.
Frankly, it’s a big project because of the sheer number of tales to be told. I thought I’d start with mine and work from there.
Since my blog is pretty quiet right now, I thought I’d throw these stories on here for Drew to read, and for anyone else who wants to hear about the best job, ever. But like all things, good and bad, there’s an end.
I won’t tell you how it ends so keep reading. There’s more to tell.
This post is part of a series on my days as a meter reader for Public Service Company of Colorado from 1989 – 1995.
