I didn't pay the bill, so they turned it off

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My heat is off and it's like 20 degrees out. My DD is 2 years old. She needs to be warm.

So, I have my oven set to 500 and left open. I am hoping it'll warm up the house. Is this a bad idea? How much electricity does that use? I can't really afford too much.

So you paid your insurance before your electric bill? What kind a mother are you? You allowed your heat to be shut of knowing you have a child to care for!!! That line, well sometimes you have to pick is lame. I would have paid heat before I paid my car insurance! I would NEVER EVER allow my family to set in the cold like that!

In some states they cant turn you off between certain months. October to April? Not sure. Apply for energy assistance. The deadline is next month.

 People who speak like you show how ignorant they are.

Where I live they will shut it off, doesn't matter if it is winter & we get cold!

Yeah, the rest are temperature based fuckface. If it's twenty degrees they aren't going to turn it off.

 Did you even read what you typed?

LMAO, key word that you even put in there MOST states, not ALL.

Haha. Troll. They can't turn off a utility related to your heat source between November and March in most states.

Seems to me the obvious solution would be to pay the bill and get it turned back on. So you paid for internet but not heat???? Interesting what people's priorities are.

You know they still have gas stoves right?

Quoting Anonymous:

Wait....You said they turn your electric "OFF", but then you say you have your oven set at 500, how much ELCTRIC does that use? I call troll! A very lame one at that!

Maybe you should talk to the company and see if you can do a payment plan. Or ask a local charity to help you. Leaving your oven open like that is unsafe, especially with a 2 year old wandering around, and does use a lot of power. Have you tried an electric blanket or a hot water bottle?
