“Before that day , I had visited the house for disconnection last month and one of the residents , the one using prepaid meter, had pledged to speak with the others to pay their debts , because it was only one wire that supplies power to the four flats.

He never argued with me, but I was surprised that he said I was looking for trouble when he saw me climbing the pole.
