    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    But if you had been there a month sooner for maintenance, while it was still working, and found that, and then it broke when you touched it.

    Not sure why but that reminds me of this older lady who was telling me she hated the last tech that was at her house, btw it was me lol. She was mad because "he didn't hear a noise" the furnace was making. Then she admitted it wasn't making the noise when I was there last. I guess sometimes driving an hour in the winter and getting her furnace working wasn't good enuf.
