Propane please...I am not stupid!!!

Out in the country we don't have the ability to have natural gas. We get to use a propane tank.
Well, the last six months I have known that our propane gage has been wrong. I tried to tell them the last time I filled up, but the guy just would not believe me.
So, finally I had had it. I knew that this company would give me a hard time about my dilemma. SO, I dialed the phone number with a plan in mind. I can't explain to you how I know the gage is wrong, JUST BELIEVE ME.
Anyway, today I called, the lady I visited with didn't want to believe me. SO, I said, "If you guys aren't worried about it then I guess I won't be either. But I want my gage to be right so I can know the exact amount I have." She sent someone out not wanting to argue with me anymore.
The guy comes out trying to tell me that nothing is wrong with the propane tank my levels are fine. I tell him again, "I know the propane tank is fine but my gage is wrong". He finally believes me "I THINK". Just got a phone call from the guy today. I will be getting a new propane tank tomorrow with a gage that will work!!!! Finally!!!!
I am not a push over anymore. I WILL stick up for myself. and I love doing it. I am not rude and I don't yell, but I don't give up. Especially when I know I am right.
Just wanted to vent and write out this paragraph of my life. Have a great day and don't forget to stick up for yourself.

Good for you! I'm still learning how to do this. Usually I just get my husband to fight my battles for me. ;)

Good job! Even though it's a hard thing to do - stick up for yourself... evenually you learn to do it. Plus, with something that is possibly dangerous - a propane tank ... you needed that checked out. Didn't your sister just post about a house blowing up last week?? I would have been nice but forceful too.

I'm glad you got it resolved!

Good for you! Our propane tank had a leak for over a year and they wouldn't believe me. When I threatened to call EPA and HazMat - they fixed it in a hurry:)
