This always bugged me. There are "phone like" wires coming off water and gas meters and going somewhere I don't know. The meters themselves look like very crude industrial devices, with big bolts in them and don't seem like they can have sophisticated dialing electronics inside. And I certainly don't want to mention that I'm curious how it work to the gas/electric/water guy. Next thing I know will be a pizza van with a satellite dish on top following me everywhere.
