That happened to me once. My s/o sent a bill to the water co and they turned off the water anyway saying it wasn't paid. So we had to go down and stop payment on the check, and write a new one at a place where the water co told us to go. Pretty stupid huh? and then they told us we didn't have to be home for them to turn the water on, but when I called to tell them it was repaid, then they tell us yes you have to be home because if there is a leak, or you leave a fuacet running they can't be liable for it! How stupid! They can turn it off without any problems like that but as for turning it back on, you have to sit and wait?! so I wait and I was fuming by the time they showed up luckily it was a friend of mine from school and he told me that if he would've know who it was for(water bill is in s/o name), he'd have gotten to us first!
I feel bad for you! that sucks! I'm glad you got it back in one day though! I've known people who had to wait the entire weekend before they turned theirs back on!

Man, that really sucks. But I'm glad your hubby got them to come turn it back on tonight! Sounds like you had fun with the grandkids too

I know, I hate cable companies. Ours is the worst for messing up your bill. They overcharged us for 4 months for internet and I just caught it last month, so they owed me for once. I go nuts without my computer too! I'm so addicted to The Cat Site, I dont remember what I did when I wasnt a member here! Housework I guess!

yeah I know the feeling, I hate cable companies in Aus, we only have a couple and they demand their bills paid every month, but when you call in to get "their" technical problems fixed thye like to take thier time....

We get that too. On the occasions when I am truly late in paying the bill, they send someone over to disconnect the cable and he pounds on the door like the proverbial Hammers of Hell. He'll take a check as payment right then and there and leave our service alone.

wow, sounds like these companies totally abuse their power. I've been at the vrunt of it as well and it's not fun. We had to pay a long distance bill that a roomate made because they got a hold of us first. We offered them our new roomates number and address but they weren't interested. It was our phone line and our bill. Crazy.
