Unholy Water

I'm working at the local water authority, and yesterday a woman rang up the engineers and demanded that her new water meter be replaced because it has a 666 in its serial number.

Now after having a good laugh, I got to thinking about it today. Firstly, what does she think the meter will do to her water? Secondly, is she happy as long as she gets rid of the offending piece of equipment, or is she at all concerned for the innocent person who will have this evil visited on them unawares? The ethical issues interest me. She really should buy the thing and have it exorcised or destroyed if she feels it's a danger. (Poor inoffensive little meter.) Sadly, I can't ask her, though she lives in the next street.
