Why are people so helpless? 😓
I made a post this morning about a gas leak. We fixed it so it's all fine, but I literally still get comments that fire departments need to be contacted and what not. I never thought about it when I lived in Denmark, because nothing ever broke lol. In Ukraine we live in old soviet buildings, so naturally, everything breaks all the time, so it's beyond ridiculous to call a fire department whenever someone has a gas leak. The valve was what was leaking, so we just needed to buy and install a new one. The reason we add a smell to gas is so that we notice it. When something explodes, it's usually because no one's home in the apartment for days. It's not hard to install a new valve, the fact that even men in modern countries panic and call authorities over something small like this baffles me. It literally takes 10 minutes to do, it's very easy, and I assume you people also have gas meters, so you can check if the leak has stopped or not. Everyone needs to calm down, and also maybe learn how to do basic repairs?
