Well, I talked to energy assistance and they paid $350.00 of it. So, I called the credit department and told her that. She said when can you get the rest of it, it was Friday and my car was broken down, I had to borrow a car and try to get my car started to get to the Mall, I told her I would be there by 5. Well the money that the energy assistance gave to her for the deposit will just sit there until I have paid on time for a year. Meanwhile, the other half will go to oil. I usually don't pay oil because I don't get much from disability. So now I have another bill added because I forgot.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Has the light company called and said just because you were late that you had to pay a deposit even though you have been there for years and don't plan on going anywhere?
Well be careful, plan your family emergencies carefully, it might not agree with their schedules.
Oh by the way, if I had paid $150.00 on my bill this all could have been avoided.
Have a Merry Christmas.
