but killed two birds with one gas man...


walking in to the yard, noticed cover on gas water heater looking worse than ever
pulled it off to see how bad the rust was. 
the cover fell OFF
not funny dude.
some DIY?
wired it up, but the wind blew the gas out at the same time
OH OH
tried to relight the bastard.
no go- FAIL
3 kids and me and NO SHOWER
buttons stuck or broken?
 no leaking gas tho
bugger- WORK time
later- call a gas man- immediate response!
around less than 5 minutes
CANNOT buy a new cover for less than half the price of NEW UNIT?
wow, hmm, the credit card maxed already...

call de boss- 
"use more effort with pliers, swing OFF IT!"
relit
