Im beyond mad right now.
We just paid nearly $500 last month for hydro!
- we get our hydro bill every 2 months.
- we live in a BASEMENT apartment.

Im so tired of this. Our bill just keeps going up. Like wtf!
$60 just to 'deliver' us hydro. Like really!? We dont have a dishwasher or washer and dryer in our unit.

I really hope our new place isnt this high with hydro because this is freakin' BS.

Basement apartments are usually poorly insulated. This could be why.

I've never heard of "hydro" I'm guessing thats your electric bill?

Our electric bill is $110 a month. Our water, sewer and trash pick up are free, our landlord pays for them.

 My electric bill is over $500 a month in the summer.  Florida sucks.
