Today, August 20, 2012, I received a communication in the mail. The snail mail type of mail. Not surprising, as we recently moved.
The letter is dated August 16, 2012. Given there was a weekend in the middle, that would be about the right delivery time. Yes? Yes.
The problem is the period of time this letter actually refers too. The important bit reads as follows:
“… your Electricity connection is scheduled for 03 August 2012. To avoid delays, it’s really important that we have easy access to your meter on the day …”
I am sure it WAS really important – 17 days ago!
No wonder our energy charges are so high, when we pay for such systems fails as this. What on earth is the use of sending me a letter 17 days AFTER the event? Furthermore, it certainly doesn’t inspire confidence in my energy provider!
On a good note, the paper is recyclable and Australian made. Why is it not recycled paper?
