Rhaa,

I woke up to the nasty smell of gas (ie. rotten egg like smell) in my hallway. Turns out most of the building smells of it. For once the smell of gas does not come from me.

Have called up the national gas helpline who are under their way to hopefully resolve this rhaa of a problem.

Has this ever happened to you before? How long will those people be around?

Are you really sure of that? Go take a shower.

OK the gas man came over. Turns out some fool leashed a gas bomb which propagated all the way from the street to my flat.

So thankfooly there was no problem and the rhaat is still alive.

That rotten egg smell is actually added to natural gas or bottled gas to let you know there is a leak. Actually, you should have left your house IMMEDIATLEY, don't touch any appliances and call the gas company from outside. At least several times a year, there are explosions and fires of homes and apartment buildings, turning them to toothpicks or rubble that are caused by accidental damage to pipelines or other leaks. Sometimes people will get killed in those incidents.

Leave, leave like you needed to be out of the country yesterday.

I had workers hit a gas main in my backyard at home, they sent the fire department, the gas company, and the police to shut down the area because gas was coming up through the ground.

And LTBWER is right, the rotten egg that you smell is sulfer, which is added because natural gas in its own right has no odor at all.
