One recent night, a KCPL worker named Justin came to our house to check on reasons for two outages in one week.
Since it was dark out, I asked him what hours he worked and if he had a family. Turns out he works until 11 p.m. and has a 12-year-old daughter named Jordan. I could tell that Justin is a loving and caring father. He told me it’s hard since he is unable to spend much time with Jordan because of his late hours.
Justin was not complaining — he was glad to be working. I found out simply because I asked.
So, to Justin and untold others like him, thank you for what you do! You are definitely appreciated, even though you may not get to hear the words.
