FORT MYERS, Fla. (CNN) -- Most of Florida as electricity again, but there are some people who are still struggling without power in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

A woman in Fort Myers made a sign to get the attention of power crews. It may not have made a difference, but the sign is at least getting some laughs on social media.

The pink sign sitting outside the Fort Myers home is sparking a lot of attention.

"I thought that all of my neighbors would get a huge kick out of it," storm victim Kynse Agles said.

You can see Agles kicking it next to her florescent 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," Agles said.

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," Agles said.

But a lightbulb went off in her head, when she "...saw a post on Facebook, and I thought it was really funny, and I said, 'I can do that better.'"

"I just thought, 'Hey, maybe when the lineman gets to my neighborhood, this will make them laugh and they'll hook me up first," she explained.

And, guess what?

"I have power," she remarks.

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."

Agles is just happy not to have to crash on any more couches.

"I haven't slept in my bed in 20 nights, so I'm really excited to go to sleep tonight," she said.

But, the sign may not be done yet.

"My neighbor across the street doesn't have power yet, and I told him he can borrow ,y sign later," she said.
