Life’s a gas

Hopefully this is the final chapter in the saga of our gas bill.

I had an email from the gas company on Saturday under the heading
Your payments aren’t going to change.
When I opened the message, there was the usual blurb and another heading
‘We’ve found your payment.’

Yippo. Finally after two weeks! thought I , then read the rest of the text.

And got angry.
‘In order to avoid future payments getting lost’ it read, ‘why not set up a direct debit? Paying by direct debit ensures your payments are received and allocated to your account.’
Or words to that effect.

I felt like sending a two word response but held my temper in check.
Instead, I replied saying to close my account, there would be no direct debit, and there should have been no account in the first place.

But you know who is to blame for this cock up don’t you?


For contacting them as a courtesy in the first place.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
