They shut off electric off early this morning before my alarm went off. It's set to 6. I woke up at 10:00 to ds waking me up. And I'm like holy crap the sun is up what the hell. So I call dh and he tells me he paid the bill and to get the recipt an call them. So I call and give them holy hell cause we paid the bill. And they apologize and they see on our account that we did in fact pay the bill. I said its really not ok because of this ds missed school today and I can't take him cause we only have one car and dh has it. Livid yes people make mistakes but this is not the first time this is has happened with this company. It's the second time this year. We always pay the bill in full on time. Always.
Now dh has the car and he doesn't work near by so he can't just come home and pick up ds, take him to school and drive back. We live out in the country so we don't have neighbors and the few friends I do have in town work as well. So ds didn't got to school today. Long weekend for ds as he also has off on Monday for a teacher work day.

So your car is there in the morning? Your DH got up in time for work though and didn't wake you before you left?

Yes he was but at first he thought he was in trouble cause I was mad. Not at him of course. He's in k so he's still little and didn't understand.

Exactly! I wish I could sleep until 10 even if it was on accident. If my kids don't wake me up by 8 my body does...lol.

I'd be ticked off! They have some nerve!!! I always pay mine online and have it send the confirmation number to my email AND take a pic of it with my cell so I have the confirmation in two places incase that kind of crap ever happens to us.

Considering that dh gets up at 4 and leaves the house at 4:30 no I was not up and there's no way I'm going to wake up at that time for no reason.

Well enjoy your day off! It may have been a mistake, can't stay mad at day. It could have happened for a reason, never know :)

If the electricity was turned off, how did your dh get to work on time ? Why didn't he wake you up before he left ? Didn't he realize you would need the car ? That doesn't make sense.

And ya, I'd pitch a fit at the electricity company, what they did was uncalled for, especially since you paid the bill.
