This is a summary of a conversation I had with my local gas company.
Thank you, for calling ###. How can I help you? I’m being over billed. I’m sorry to hear that. Can I have your account number? ####-###### Thank you, Mr. Marcel. I see you are being charged for exceeding a green limit. What’s a green limit? We have a model for how much the average household should burn. You exceed that so there’s a penalty to help keep greenhouse gases down. Not happy, but that’s not why I’m calling. Then what is it. My house is a two family house. The gas to the up stair apartment hasn’t been used for 2 years. I have a $300 bill for last month. I don’t show it was turned off. How do you know how much we use gas? We take a reading of the neighborhood and average it out. Hold on, no one reads our meter. I can send someone to do an official reading. That should clear this up. Would you like me to send someone? Wait a second. You don’t send people to read my meter. You guest how much gas I burn and then penalize me for burning too much? Yes sir. You don’t see a problem with this. Sir I can send someone to read your meter. Can you pay me back the penalties you charged? …….. I can send someone to read your meter.
I watched MSNBC. I learned a lot. For instance, the other day I forgot my racist ID for my racist car. I needed it for my racist test. My racist teacher required my racist ID to prove I'm a racist. An all this time, I haven't been using the correct racist adverbs in my sentences. Boy, was I an ignorant racist.
