The Electric Bill Mess

is still a mess.

I wrote in January about how our electric company had been switched without our knowledge and that we had a 1600+ bill to pay, remember?

Oops, they did it again.

On February 22nd, we were sent a bill for 202.93. I paid it later that day. On February 24th, they sent a bill out for 233.10, showing the previous charges and then a second meter reading with a four-day billing cycle.

huh? I know February is short, but that's redonkulous.

So I call today. The reason a bill had been sent out on that date is because that is the date service via that company was terminated and we were switched to another company. Only I didn't make that call and, once again, they aren't sure which company it was moved to.

I am pretty sure this means we are getting new neighbors in the house behind us and that this has something to do with that. I called and left a message with the neighborhood and gave my electric company authorization to become my electric company again.

And, while I was at it, made a doctor's appointment for Friday. I think going back to the ER is just going to be expensive and fruitless. And I needed one more thing to do Friday in between Charlie's evaluation, playgroup and ladies' retreat.

And that is why deregulation sucks. So sorry you are dealing with that. TX never did figure it out when it comes to electricity.
