Having been an field tech, I can imagine this guy didn't want to deal with a possible "whiner", maybe wanted to get home?
Still bad form and very dangerous!

Good way to get shot! I would contact the power company and ask what their normal procedure is because this doesn't sound like it. Sneaking around people's houses in the dark is risky business.

If he was legit, he would have not proceeded if he saw a gun. He would have gotten assistance from the sheriff's department I imagine. It's pretty homeowner friendly in texas, and after dark, the laws are REALLY in favor of the homeowner.
If not legit, well, after dark in Texas means he's getting zapped. Especially with the initial failure to identify.
Very good point about the second guy. He may have been round to reconnect and wondered why it was on already. That's backed up by the fact that he wanted to look at the meter.
That said, it's not a great idea to look around someone's property after dark. Woulda been better waiting until daylight. Of course, they were trying to give good service I guess in getting it hooked up right away.
Still, an interesting situation I thought.
