Are you kidding me? What? Cut your water off over a pass due $12.00 bill, and charge $45.00 to cut the water back on? I can't believe it!!!! Rediculous!

 Yeah for the gas the reconnect fee is $180 and for the electric it is $25.  Beaats me where they come up with these prices.

 How about a $23 gas bill and the reconnection fee is almost 10 times that amount.  Yep, that was my sometymers moment.

Oh no! That is way too high to reconnect-what are these folks thinking when they come up with these charges??? It is aweful. Our electric requires a down payment added to bill if it is cut off.I try really hard to remember that one because of the high deposit-

I bet I dont forget for a while writing that check for $45-I think I heard my checkbook gasp for airlaughingHugs-

Dont quit school!!!! It may be hard and things slip our minds, but when you finish, the stress will lessen and things will be better.

Crazy aint it?? The past due amount of $12 plus late fees was due by yesterday since new bill, I think is maybe $18 this month, is due also.It totally slipped my mind until the water dept guy was here! I must have looked so puzzled as it took me a minute to figure what he was saying-

So for a total bill of $33 , cost $35 to reconnect and as I looked at the paper receipt, the guy was supposed to collect another $20 for accepting payment!! He was being very nice and just accpeted past due amount & $35.I was like this will be the last time

We had that happen to our Direct Tv bill, luckily the lady called them to tell them she keeps getting paid statements when she hasnt paid it in 3 months, but our bill was getting higher-

Glad they found the mistake for you-Wow! Some can be careless when posting someone's bill

 Oh well, I've done that before, I was lucky enough to be home and the man gave me time to go pay it while he made some other rounds.
