In fact, no. My dear hubby did not pay the bill, for 2 MONTHS.
How you wonder does that happen to a man who crosses all his T's. Well, in his defense, we had a baby 2 months ago.
My embarrassment would have been kept between me and the electric guy had my in-laws not stopped in that very day for a quick 2 day visit before returning to their home from a vacation. Thankfully they were at the park with the kids when the "electric man" came.
I called my husband and told him to pay the bill and extra so that this would never happen again. 5 HOURS later our power was restored. Of course, I had to endure countless statements and questions such as,
"Wow, your house is the only one without power."
"I wonder why everyone else has power but you!!
"Did they say why the power was out?"
"Don't you find it strange that you don't have power?"
"Do they know what they need to do to fix your power?"
UM, YEAH, PAY THE BILL - THAT SHOULD FIX IT!!
Of course I did not say that, I just kept ignoring them hoping they would stop their endless questioning!! They never did find out the "cause" of the outage but we did have to buy dinner that night since I had to send my crockpot to my neighbors to cook.
