I Hate PSE&G
Remember how I was saying we haven't turned the heat on at all?
It's been tough, but we're sticking it out.
You have to look at it like this: In the summer we don't have A/C. We have to suck it up and deal with 100 degrees and humid sticky temps.
Admittedly, we have fans in the summer that we run. And we have Cold Fish.
But in the winter we have electric blankets, and fleece pullovers.
So after dealing with 100 degrees in a stuff-ass old house, 48 degrees? Shoot that's nothing.
But onto the real reason I'm posting today.
The electric and gas bill came in the mail yesterday.
I was SO excited to reap the benefits of our experiment in how long we could go without heat.
And then I was pissed.
See that? October's total bill was $62.88 for gas AND electric.
And did you see what they want for our total bill this month?
Needless to say I'm livid.
I am DONE with these fucknuts and PSE&G doing this:
ESTIMATING our gas usage.
You can see right there in black and effing white that we didn't even use 1 CCF per day in November 2007.
Hell, look at the whole year--did we EVER top more than 2 CCFs per day???? NO. So obviously, this winter we MUST be using 3 CCFs in November.
You will also note that December and February are two months last year that they estimated our bill so completely wrong that we had a ZERO balance in how much gas we used (we paid for it all the month before as an "estimate" of the prior month's total useage).
Here's my question.
If you're going to give us a fucking graph showing us how many daily CCFs we use for each month in a year--WHY ARE YOUR ESTIMATES SO FAR OFF????
So here I'll be paying these jackasses $173 of which they are entitled to maybe $70 of and that other $100 that could be earning a .000002% interest in my savings account goes to their greedy little coffers.
However, I WILL be calling their asses on Wednesday to complain.
Yes, I realize I can call in my meter readings or call to have a meter reader come out--but I'm pretty sure they charge you a fee for that. I'll look into it. Even if I don't get charged a fee to read it to them, why the hell am I doing THEIR job?
Gah. Someday man, I'm going to be living in the Canadian wilderness on my potato farm and heating our house on our own feces or possibly plain old potato power!
Down with the man!!!!
