Florida woman makes 'single and sexy' sign to get power back
This pink sign outside a Fort Myers home sparking a lot of attention around the neighborhood and online.
"I thought that all of my neighbors would get a huge kick out of it."
Kynse Agles seen standing next to her fluorescent pink sign that reads, "hot single female seeks sexy lineman to electrify her life," but just days before, she got a different kind of jump-start - a kidney transplant.
"My hurricane story started with a double-organ transplant at Tampa General Hospital."
Because of her recent surgery, she needed to stay in air conditioning.
"I found a place to stay that had electricity, and I've kind of been jumping from bed to couch."
That’s when a light bulb went off in her head.
“I saw a post on Facebook, and I thought it was really funny, and I said, 'I can do that better.'"
She turned to her neighbor to help her pull it off.
"I've some pink spray-paint. Got any plywood left over?'"
And just like that, the electric company showed up to help. The lineman didn't just restore power, they also took a picture in front of the sign and left a note behind saying, "power on due to your ppl linemen."
"Big shout-out to everyone who is working hard to get the power restored, because it's hot out there."
She's just happy not to have to crash on anymore couches.
"I haven't slept in my bed in 20 nights, so I’m really excited to go to sleep tonight."
And what about the sign that saved the day?
"My neighbor across the street doesn't have power yet, and I told him he can borrow my sign later."
