Why ConEd meter readers should carry mascara

Not for the makeup, but for the mirror.

The meter reader came earlier this month, and he couldn't read one of the meters in the basement. The meter is in a closet in the basement, but it is right up against the wall, about 4 inches away, so from within the closet you can't see the face of the meter.

There is a hole cut in the wall, but we have a bookcase in front of the hole.

We tried taking a picture of the meter with my iPhone, but it was too dark, and the flash was too bright that close up.

So I grabbed my wife's mascara case. With the mirror, the reading was done in a jiffy.

If meter readers don't want to start carrying a mascara case, they could carry this $5.50 mirror.
