Water woes.
del.icio.us Tags: ,,,

I had a problem with my water bill because my water main burst. The biggest problem is that I was out of town for two weeks so the water was running full blast for nearly the entire time. I replaced the water main line into my house, then got my water bill which was a killer. So I sent the following note to the water company:
My Letter

Here is the reply I received back from the City of Bellevue. Pretty funny:

Gravatar pretty awesome how your city's employees seem to have such a good sense of humor. Here in Louisville, a letter like that would be very lucky to warrant a form response shooting down any hopes of adjustment to the bill. Bellevue sounds positively human in comparison!

Gravatar I have to say, that was a great way to handle it. I probably would have hit the roof and blown my stack at the staff at the water board.

But good thing they had a great sense of humor and helped you out.
