What a bunch of belters
Actual bill: £14.98
As far as I can tell we have used less energy this quarter, yet our bill for both gas and electricity has more than doubled
Which is nice. Shame we only have one proper light fitting in the entire house.
not being as bright as normal bulbs.
not helpful when being used in a toilet with no outside window
That have been dipped in mud
amazingly bright actually. Much brighter than usual ones. Just take a while to get going.
in our house still gets free low-energy bulbs. I think he's dead. I have loads of free bulbs.
i used to work there. the incompetence was breathtaking, and something that i am proud to have been a part of
Those fuckers are cunts.
because they have swapped mine and my neighbour's names over on our flat numbers. So my bill and his bill are wrong. Neither of us can get access to the accounts to swap the address details because our names and flats don't match on the security questions. So they haven't sent the correct bills, so we can't pay them. They occasionally send red threat letters, but they can't cut us off because they don't know which flat we are!!
read the serial number off it. Its usually engraved on the top, or it might be on a label. Write down yours, then write down your neighbours. Call up the Customer services, and tell them that you have an MPR mismatch. They will need to put you through to 'Customer Ecalations' who will sort it out, but it will take about 2 weeks.
and they want their money, they can tell me to do that, rather than threatening me.
credit rating regardless of being right or wrong.
then moan about the size of the bill when it comes, they will write a load of it off.
to get an account closed last summer. Ended up with about 10 red bills, and various legal threats for incorrect bills before they finally decided to sort it out and send me the right ones.
We haven't had the heating on at all.
There's only two of us so we don't use that much gas.
I'm really fussy about turning things off standby and turning lights off (low income parents give you a great start in life)
anyone know what BG charge per unit? I took a reading and have used up 7 the last month and can't get an answer out of BG, or the internet..
i count all 6 numbers?? lord. I don;'t know. These british gas people are trying to sell me things and cut deals. I just want to pay what I owe!
