The evils of the power company
First it was "wait a week". Now it is "Fax us your driver's license and Social Security Card and we might be able to connect your power in at least 2 days"
so they did this AFTER they made you wait the week???? For fuck's sake, who's running your powe company. Jindal?
They've called me to verify my identity twice. My sister? She got hers hooked up in an hour. Argh.
Also she lives 4 blocks away in the "upscale" part of the Garden District, while I live in the "shabby" part.
Ohhhhhhhhhhh. why did you make that choice. Garden sounds so much better than "shabby". coures "left home" sounds 100000 x better than "stayed to look some more". heh
Well, the "shabby" part of the GD. Because it is on the bus route and cheapish. It just needs a lot of work. The previous tenet never cleaned the bathroom for example.
That's what the cabinet under my kitchen sink looks like.
Oh, thank God. I thought that was the floor of the bathroom.
(so did I. scared me, that the toilet might "fall though" or something.)
It should be fixed, but you can just take out the bad wood, and never use it.
Ours look a bit like that, cause we own them, and I don't know how to fix it. but not THAT bad.
A few more faxes, an hour on the phone, and I will have power by Friday evening.
Friday is only one day away! how's the rest. furnature, wanky smells you can't quite identify, plates cups and assorted things to drink adult beverages from, etc?
Good news: I have power :D
Bad news: My water heater is so horribly rusted it cannot be turned on. The "deacitaved" wall heater still had gas going to it so the workman put a warning sign on it that cannot be removed until I get the land lord to fix it. Likewise, the landlord is required to light the pilot light on the stove. He just went on a week vacation.
Am I not allowed to have a nice day?
who needs a bath. food can be delievery. most importantly, you have power and internet (?)
