"Turn off the breaker or shut off the pilot"

My family had a plumbing business for years. I can't tell you how many college educated middle class or above people have no idea where to turn off their utilities. It's almost like they take pride in being helpless. They don't have any idea what a gas valve or water valve LOOKS like or what to do with the handle whether a lever or a round handle on a stem. People don't know where there breaker box is located and the breakers are not labelled and they can't tell if one has been tripped. Actually - ran into this in schools before. No resident custodian now and nobody in the building knows where the breakers are.
