An Analogy, or maybe I should call it a parable...

An analogy of my day:
Me: There was a gas leak. We turned off the gas and opened the windows. It seems to have dissipated, but the leak hasn't been fixed.
Them: Are you sure it was a gas leak? It could have been a rotten egg. Many times that smell is only a rotten egg. How do you know it was a gas leak?
Me: Because when we turned the gas off, the odor dissipated.
Them: We think it was a rotten egg. Maybe we should call an expert.
Expert testifies. No eggs found.
Them: Well we want you to try this. Turn on the gas again, but only half way and then light a match. then we will know if it was a gas leak.

Me: (googling jobs with less stress, like air traffic controller)
