~What Is Going On-This Is Crazy~

I'm starting to feel like someone is messing with us! Lol. Last night with the homeless girl was strange enough but this morning we get an email saying we have used enough water in the last few days to fill up a pool! I know we haven't used THAT much water since we always do the same thing each day. Possible leak? Great. Now we have to investigate that issue. Then my husband went to pay our light bill. The lady added the money to our OLD house instead of our current one so my husband had to fax them the receipts that he paid the bill for our home and it went to the wrong place. They said it would be back on within 30 minutes. After an hour went by he called back and they said it would be 24 hours before getting it turned back on UNLESS he paid an extra fee to get it on earlier! Meanwhile it was THEIR mistake-not ours!! Grrr... He's there paying the extra fee now and we BETTER have lights again soon! Gracious, is this week over yet??

I would have refused to pay the extra fee for something that is THEIR mistake. Is this a more rural light company?

@ScribbledAdNauseum If we did that they wouldn't have turned it on for 24 hours.

@LovingMyBabies Speak to a supervisor and have them refund the extra money you paid. Not your mistake, it was theirs.

@LovingMyBabies I sure hope that they do. The power company around here is the same way. I have had mine cut off before, their fault too. It is ridiculous.

I would definately try to get that money back, talk to a supervisor or something. If it's their mistake you shouldn't have to pay the fee. That's crazy. At least its friday.

Both of those things are crazy, using too much water when you didn't and the electric bill going to the wrong house? It sounds like an episode from "The Twilight Zone"!

@Leapea2417 I know it was insane! They emailed us back a little bit ago saying the water was a mistake-it was for our old house not our current one.

@Morleyhunt We pay by the day, it's prepaid service here. They send you a text letting you know when your balance is getting low and we pay it. Usually it's fine but not today.

@NJChicaa No, they sent an email again and said it was for our old house not the one we live in! They keep getting the 2 places confused for some reason even though they know we moved!!

That is really annoying when it is the company that is at fault but they are making you pay.
