My House Is On Fire? But How Can You Tell?

Homeowner: “I have a question about my alarm system.”

Me: “Yes?”

Homeowner: “It says low battery.”

[long pause]

Homeowner: “What does that mean?”

Me: “It… means you should replace the battery.”

[longer pause]

Homeowner: “Oh.”

It’s not the money or prestige that keeps me coming back to this job. It’s the constant opportunities to be of service.
