Bills, Bills and More Bills

I used to get 5 electric bills every month..... one for each meter in the park. The company providing service to my area uses those post cards that are perforated, allowing a stub for your record and one to submit with payment. Every month I wait patiently as they come in to pay the bill with one check. It irks me that they don't stick them all in one envelope and send them together. One does arrive in an envelope with all the literature with so much useful information that I immediately toss it. So I think they are aware that all these bills are going to the same address. I have checked the postmarks and they are all mailed within a day or two of each other.... Just one of those things that are annoying to me.

With the renovation of the tent area I have acquired two more meters, so of course two more of the post cards came. Both meters were activated at the same time and were billed a service fee for the 6 days that they were on during the billing period. Each had a different amount. I found this to be confusing so I called the main office for an explanation. I am in a crappy mood and was all set to do battle.............. the service rep who took my call was very nice and looked up the discrepancy right away. Totally diffused my desire to fight! She even wanted info on the campground.

We are expecting another round of what the meteorologist has referred to as "showers" and then it is supposed to be clear skies for the weekend. I am hoping that the sunshine will brighten my current mood!

I'm with you on the rain! Whatever you get, we get a couple of hours later in St. Louis. I'm starting to think the sky will NEVER clear up.

Isn't it nice there are still a few nice folks left in the world?

I'm all caught up now, I feel like I haven't "talked" to you for so long! I'm pretty sick of the rain as well. See you in the morning. :-)

Kathy G-I am beginning to feel water-logged!

Luksky-You bet.

LP- I know what you mean about catching up. Since I started blogging I don't go to the library much. All I need is to read blogs now.

Gosh, that's great customer service! Phew!

Rain? What's that? We don't get any rain here in Lotusland -- I mean Vancouver. *heh*

I know what you mean! I never even read a blog before my friend suggested I write one. I started looking at them and realized there's an incredibly full world of stories of all kinds right here in my computer. It's pretty cool!

Sometimes I just hate it when customer service is nice!! Now I've got to check out your campground. We sold our trailer last year because we downsized vehicles, and I'm just getting around to mourning it.
