Yesterday, my husband calls me at work to tell me that the water's been shut off... Once again, this is at no fault of ours because our bill is cheap and paid on time. Being as on edge as I am lately, I'm ready to leave my office and cross the street to the water company's office and rip some idiot a new one. The reason they turned off our water this time? Somebody had put in a shut-off notice for our house back in APRIL saying the house would be vacant in OCTOBER. Our water bill is in OUR name and neither of us put in such a notice. Our landlord(s) did not have any sort of notice that we'd be moved out in October back in April (because, hello, we had no plans of moving at that time). All the woman at the water company could come up with as to WHY this was happening was "data input error"... very similar to the one that happened earlier this year.
Thank GOD we didn't have to wait another damned week to have our water turned back on. It was back on a few hours later, so my rampage to their office was avoided.
I hate you Sumter Water... your establishment is full of incompetent IDIOTS.
