Notes what Mince considers fun so as to know what to avoid next time.

Laugh? I almost started.
I apologise, in advance.

Oh, you cruel people. We all know how Mince likes to take on bureaucracy so these guys obviously struck a chord with him. It was mildly amusing and I quite enjoyed the threat to take out the entire street's gas supply.

Coincidentally, the guy from the Gas Company came round today to read my meter.

"I'll give you a fiver if you misread the meter," I said, hilariously.

"I'll give you a tenner if you stop saying that every time I come round," he replied.

He was joking. He loves my humour.

Why didn't he just misread the meter twice and then pay you to shut up?

Mince, you're clearly not capable of keeping up with our sophisticated badinage. The whole point of my gassy friend's response was that he was willing to LOSE money just to shut me up. Merely breaking even destroys the hilarity of his gag. You're in with the big boys now. Do try harder.

That goes without saying: I can't even fathom how rich you must be now.

Can't I just pay you a tenner?
