The gas bill

About a month ago I rang up the gas company to get my name corrected on the bill again, attempting to finally (after six years) ensure my ex-wife’s name was removed from both the mailing address and the account name.

So the other day, a gas bill arrived.

Gas bill addressed to Mr and Mrs Daniel.

I mean seriously… that takes a special effort of cunning to do that. You don’t make that kind of “mistake” accidentally.

Maybe that picture of the lady in the corner of the page is some gas company lady having a smirk.

Did your ex-wife complain about your gas problem?
PS And why does the gas company put a full point after “MRS”. Standards have really slipped!

I think there is a conspiracy against you Daniel. Your file must be marked “let’s fuck with this guys brain every time he has the audacity to ask us to do something correctly”. I have the same problems with Optus not listening to me but I now just send back any mail which they incorrectly send to me then wait for the next one to arrive.

Optus are HOPELESS. When I was with them I told them my new address on four separate occasions – never once did they seem to write it down. Idiots!

Sort of reminds of years ago with the Gas&Fool. They threatened to cut out gas off for non payment. The prolem was that we didn’t even have gas…
