Did I Win The Lottery?

Did I win the lottery and not know it? Seems everyone is after my little piddling money. First the water company and now the electric company. Yep got a bill from them for $186.37. I haven't even used heat or air in weeks. Oh yeah they got a call from me early this morning. They will come re-read the meter in the next seven days then I have to call them back. What are the chances of two companies misreading my meter in the same month?

Hope you get it all figured out.

I wonder if they are sending dummies to read your meters. That is so aggravating. Keep an eye on them.

This seems so strange Paula.I an glad you wern't on the other end of the phonecall i made yesterday.I have just had the same problem.I am sick to death of them trying to rip pensioners off who do not check their bills,but NOT this Motherhen pensioner.My electric and (Gas Heating) bills were both wrong.Far far too high.The reply was New bills are on the way and the ones I got yesterday are in the shredder Heeeeeeeeeee.Take Care God Bless Kath xx

Seems like too much of a coincidence if two separate meters were "misread." I think they're trying to get as much $$$ as possible and just hope you don't notice their "mistakes."

I think it must be contagious Paula. It's a pain to have to read your own meter every month but I guess that's what we have to do to keep them honest. Hope you get good results with the electric company.

I'd say the chances are good! Everyone's out to swipe a buck. Watch 'em!
