We Are Mother FU#%ING FU#%ED AND THAT IS NO LIE

It started out like any other day. And then I was leaving for work, and I noticed the thermostat was down to 68 degrees, and something was wrong because we always keep it around 72. So, I check the vents, and there is no air. The furnace is turned on, so what the hell? The furnce is running, but sounds different. I shut it off, reset it, and turned it back on. No air from vents. It's running, and making a clicking sound. The pilot is trying to ignite, but there is a reason why it's not. No gas. I finish getting ready for work, Angi calls the gas company, and they say they shut us off. No, note, no call or anything. Right before she was able to talk to an actual REAL live human, (instead of the comp. who says "please press 1 for....." ), I checked outside and YEP, the gas valve was shut off and locked.


LONG STORY SHORT......
They did not get their check in time, so I now have to pay over SEVEN HUNDRED FUCKING DOLLARS before they EVEN TURN US BACK ON. The bill I owed????
























$234.00

And apparantly, during this winter the gas company changed their rules or whatever, and if you get shut off, you have to pay THREE times your bill to get turned back on, and that is not lie, a coworker at my work said she knew someone who was a single MOM on WELFARE and had to pay TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS to get turned back on. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY?????????????????????????




A revolt sounds better and better.

Don't feel bad... I just got hit with a $1,200.00 electric bill. We think that someone else is tapping into our lines. We hardly use anything---hell---we use mostly candles!!! Unreal.

They can't do that---they need to NOTIFY you and let you make a payment plan IF necessary! I would really make a stink of this. It's the utility companies that make this so difficult. I used to work for a phone company, and if they were $5.00 off and three weeks late----phone was TURNED off automatically.

Sad, huh?

Hope things work out. The squeaky wheel gets the grease,....so SQUEAK my friend---SQUEAK!
