Default Damn water company !!!!!!

So I come home today from work and go to wash a load of clothes and the washer isn't working......so I jack with the washer.......and jack with the washer.......then think "Let me go check and see if the kitchen sink has water".......nope........So I go ask my neighbor.......and he has water.......so I check my meter and there is this nice little tag locking me out threatening me with jail if it is removed.......So I call my wife and she says we are not behind on anything.....I check the bill and sure as anything we are three weeks behind on a 23.49 bill from last month.......now mind you we have NEVER been late........so I go back out to the meter and magically the tag has been cut off, (I didn't do it because that would have been illegal).......and I call the water company which is one block from my house and they are closed already closed at 4pm before anyone can get home realize there is a problem and go pay their @sses !!!!!!!!!!!!!! So my plan is to go there tomorrow morning and pay them their 23.49 dollar three week late bill along with the current 19.27 bill which is not due yet........and try not to rip someone thru the damn window and choke them to death. I have heard hundreds of stories on the news where these damn low life welfare sucking bums have FINALLY had their utlities cut off after racking up a 500.00 bill on electric or water and then these morons want to clip me over a 23.49 three week old bill !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, going to go unload all the guns and have my wife hide them from me now !!!!!!!!!!!

Reed I know what your going through. It's such a small bill I would double it for a few months then forget about it for a while. Well i'm in the office and I hear the washer stop then I notice a Holly Navarre worker out front. I said whats up? He said your bill is late I said no problem I will go inside and square up and i'm sorry. I go inside and pay the like $5 that was the bill from always over paying + the $50 fee to turn the water back on and went back out and dude was gone!!!!!! I went fricken NUTS! I called back and the lady said they did not have time to wait on me (5 minutes at most) and he would be back before the day is over I cussed a lot and they promptly came back and turned my water back on 7 hours later. I had to hold a poo for 7 hours and get bottled water from Publix to make Zach a bottle. I hate Holly Navarre Water Company still just as much as I did that day.

I've had this happen to me twice....not because I was broke, but because it was so little is slipped my mind. Each time it was a 3 week past due of roughly $20.

Each time this happened I paid it online and went outside and took a screwdriver and turned it back on myself. I've never been questioned as to how it got turned back on.

I don't have the luxury of waiting all night to get it turned back on when I have a wife and kid at home.

^^^^^ yep cause if your late its gone into thin air! I keep one month of the highest it has ever been credited to all my utilities, but I think by far the water companies are the worst! Hell power company sends you a letter warning you of trminating service. least the water company could do is knock for collection or hang a tag so when you get home at 3:30 in the afternoon you would see the tag and run and pay em rather than figuring out why nothing is working before checking the last thing you expect. then they work on my hours of 6 hrs a day, cause they close for an hour at lunch and you cant pay till 8;30am and they close at 4;00pm. I hate the watercompany, save your money, put a freakin well in! Now I am all worked up and callin to see about a well!
