The following is a conversation I had earlier this morning with a friend on Facebook. It details yet another difference between life in Ireland and life in the States.
i hate the way Ireland charges the electric bills. it is SO dumb
a guestimation bill? like seriously. what is that? and then all the sudden they slam you with some gigantic crushing real bill?! rude.
Well that’s because you didn’t submit a reading
what does that mean?
we have to read our own meter?!
Yes of course
what the crap!? dont yall have people that do that for a LIVING?!
oh my lanta
like, we have power companies that hire people to go check the meters each month
that is so unfortunate
like communism. but worse
Yes but how can they get access to your property when there’s no one home
THE METER IS INSIDE!?
this is the craziest stuff i have ever heard
yeah! i had no idea!
Well there ya go
yeah it is. like i said, the power company does it for us back home
Well Dorothy , you ain’t in Kansas no more 😉
You’re telling me! What craziness is that?!
