So I was smelling gas when I turned on my oven. The maintenance guy checked all the connections, but then spent the rest of the time trying to imply I was dumb for calling it in, because he didn't see anything wrong with it. "You do know what gas smells like, right? I mean, it's turning on, so it would just burn off if there were a gas leak. Because gas is flammable."

Yes, thank you. I know that gas burns. But the fact that I am smelling gas means there is a problem and it is not burning off and the problem is probably not with my nose. Next time I smell gas, I'll light fires and see if my apartment explodes, just to make sure there's a real problem.

Thanks also for telling me to clean my kitchen better. Your professional opinion is appreciated.
