Default OT Disenfranchised!!!!!!!!! (rant)



I have been looking forward to pulling that lever for . . . never mind
how long. But I am trapped !!!! Trapped in the house by the gas
company!!!!!!!! DAMN THEM!!!!
My meter reading is supposed to be today. I TRIED to get the
appointment changed-- BUT NO!!!!!! It had to be today--ELECTION
DAY!!!!!!!! SO I have to WAIT here to let in the meter reader, or get
a penalty on my gas bill. And it is PAST NOON, and the DAMN meter
reader is not here yet!!!!!!!!!

THE GAS COMPANY DOES NOT WANT ME TO VOTE!!!

I smell a conspiracy. :P:P:P:

I'm confused. Your gas meter is INSIDE your home? Or is it behind a locked
fence?

However, I understand your irritation. I can't stand having to stay home
waiting for someone (repair person, delivery, etc.).

Your gas meter is *indoors*?????

Wow!

Although I'm quite sure all our meter readings are done remotely via
computer these days, every single one of our meters (gas, water &
electricity) is outside, and in the front part of the yard so that a meter
reader can check it without impinging on your private areas (you grant them
access and the right to be on your property as part of the contract of them
supplying the utility to you, but they are no more trespassing as anyone
else knocking on your front door without explicit permission from you
first).

The next question of course is.... is the outcome of the election worth more
to you than the penalty?

I settled the question with a furious call to the gas company.
Without going into tedious detail, I convinced them to remove the
penalties on the bill, and I went off to vote.
