Fuel Flub

"While cooking Thanksgiving dinner for family members visiting from Europe, my stove and oven suddenly would not work! I was out of propane. I called my provider, who arrived a few hours later to fill my tank. Of course, they also had to check for leaks and re-light the pilots. They charged me $100 for checking for leaks and then an extra $100 because it was holiday delivery. I've since switched to another company, which checks my tank regularly, and I never run out of fuel again."
